I am in pieces and to be quite honest I don't want to live without my beautiful Zola!!! She was 4years 5months and 11 days she had been given RIMADYL for her elbow displaysia and on Friday night showed symptoms of a burst ulcer. The vet did not pick this up straight away and we took her the following morning to the 'Specialist Vets in Birmingham' that had prescribed it to her. They did emergency surgery but she died this morning at 5.15am. I didn't want her to be on this drug but the specialists vet assured me it would be ok. They up her dosage a few days ago. She had a big ulcer and it had partly burst. I cant live without her she was my best friend I spent 22hours a day with her and she slept by me on my bed and I need her!!! If anyone reads this please don't let your dog take rimadyl. I didn't think it could happen to my dog but it has!!!!!
