some good and some bad - yikes what a roller coaster.
I once gave my elderly horse some pain killers and he ran round the paddock like a spring foal - so I did not give him any more pain killers. If pain tells the dog to rest up... and if he goes on pain killers and runs around like a looney... erm. I'd cut the dose...
I wonder if he can handle marrow bones with the meat on - there's a lot of nutrition in those... I just can't my dog unsupervised with those cos she makes splinters out of them.
