Do you think turmeric could help? If so, should I co-administer it with the COX-2 or just use it by itself? What dosage of tumeric should I try on a mg/lb of dog (or tbs/lb of dog)?

If you're going to try it, it would have to be instead of the Deramaxx. I have no idea if a dog can tolerate turmeric, and the taste is rather bitter. I use a heaping teaspoon for all 95 kg of me.

That's an interesting slip.

Thanks for the kind support. Unfortunately, bureacracy is creating a Gordian knot, rather than smoothe sailing. You wouldn't believe what I am having to deal with.
