No her liver/kidney parameteres are ok as far as I know, not sure why thats what he gave her, I just told him after exercise and then resting she becomes very stiff and in a lot of pain with her back legs and has trouble getting up and then hobbles till she gets going and her legs pop and crack a lot. Once moving she seems fine, although on his examination one leg she would not let him touch as it was obviously very painful, he then gave me a weeks supply of previcox and said he thought that would sort the problem.
I give them to her with her breakfast in the morning, althoughshe didn't seem as stiff last night she was still a bit sore and still popping and cracking well.
She hasn't been for her run yet today (waiting for the snow to hopefully clear) so she is ok at the moment.
