Has anyone use it? Pros? Cons? Also called Robaxin.

Starting to run out of options for Gracie.

Used it as one of 4 meds Risa took after slipping a disc in her back. It was the first one she was weaned off of. Not sure it did much to help. Other medications were certainly more effective in pain management.

In my own experience, muscle relaxers not all that helpful in pain management. I was prescribed some when I had back pain and it didn't help one iota.

*HUGS* to you and Gracie.

It did not work. Made her more unsteady, actually unable to use hind legs.

I'm not sure what you're treating for - is it her back? I know it's a muscle relaxer, but not familiar with it. Have you tried Galliprant? We switched from Carprofen to Galliprant with Sammy and I did notice a big difference. Something else that people swear by is Turmeric Paste. You can google the recipe. This particular mixture was developed by an Australian veterinarian. I can't say that I saw much difference with Sammy, but it's worth a try. How about Adequan injections? They were miraculous for one of my dogs and didn't help with the other. When it works, it works great though.

Great suggestions Kris! I also used Galliprant and Adequin injections will success. Please let us know how Gracie is doing when you have a chance.

Also let us know what your treating, I might have some suggestions based on my experience with Eli.
