The Tri-Acta HA along with Rimadyl has made a significant improvement with Gryphon over the past few days. A few weeks ago, we had a few nights where we were carrying him up the stairs to bed and these past few days, he's just charged right up and down them by himself.

We're also cutting back on the Rimadyl (by Vet order) to once every 3 days and it was suggested by a colleague of mine that we throw in a tablespoon of plain yogurt on the off days to replenish the probiotics from taking the Rimadyl.

My vet has suggested that I come into the office so we can research stifle braces but right now, I'm feeling very confident that with the double dosing of the Tri-Acta for a few more days, anti inflammatory medication, short 100 yard walks and....yogurt, we're on the right track for now.
