    I hope she's doing better now! Samson has been on rimadyl for a year and a half and he's never had any issues. He doesn't take it all the time, just on his bad days, he's developed arthritis in a leg he broke and had to have surgery on when he was 6 months old. He's almost 7 years old now and I was told by the orthopedic surgeon that did the surgery that he would develop arthritis to some degree at some point in his life because of that injury so it was expected. Keep us updated, I'll be praying for you and Daisy!

    I spent some time with Daisy at the hospital this morning. She seemed much improved, and was breathing easier - almost normally. She was bright eyed and eager, jumping up and kissing my face and ears. I was so relieved that I cried. The radiologist thought it looked like a fungus infection in the lungs. We don't have fungus here in the desert, but Daisy came to us from a breeder in Ohio, and that's a primary trouble spot for fungus. Apparently, these fungus infections can take months to incubate and then finally show up in symptoms. The vet is waiting for blood test results which should be back today. I just want my sweet honey bear home where she belongs. I'll post pictures of Lily and Daisy today. Thanks everyone for your continuing support!

    Olive was on Rimadyl short-term after her spay and had no problems at all-not even stomach upset. I sure hope your Daisy gets better soon!!

    Alot of dogs cant handle Rimadyl ,my two bullys cant. If they need a pain medication I use Tramadol they do well on it with no side affects, but all dogs are different.

    Update: I brought Daisy home just now. She is obviously feeling better, although she is still short of breath. The IV fluids, antibiotics, and stopping the Rimadyl has helped her. But today's follow up X-Ray of her lungs is no different than Sunday's. The blood test came back negative for Blasto. But the vet is certain that it's the Blasto fungus, and the radiologist and a consulting internal specialist agree with him. A urine sample has gone out to Mira Vista lab and we should have that result tomorrow. In the meantime, we are starting her on Sporanox. I fully expect it to be positive for the fungus. Her upset stomach was undoubtedly due to the Rimadyl, but in a way that was a blessing in disguise as it helped persuade me to get her to the vet when I did. I'm hoping we've caught the fungus at an early stage. Will report more later.
