I'm sure they did use Rimadyl... The vet put Rimadyl in the computer, the
description is "Rimadyl Inj 20ml" and quantity was 0.16ml. When Jack's
infection flared up again, I saw a different vet. She went to get Rimadyl
but then came back and said that they didn't have any Rimadyl left but she
would give him a different anti-inflammatory (I think), anyway, she gave him
"Metacam Inj 0.5% 10ml" and he had 0.2ml of that. Is that drug safer? I
must make sure that they don't use Rimadyl again... Just to be on the safe
side... Thank you for your reply!
