Michelle, welcome to the Forum. If you are indicating Lola is CURRENTLY in severe pain, then get to a vet tonight even if it has to be ER. She needs adjustment to the two pain meds you seemingly report she is on PLUS an anti-inflammatory such as the steroid prednisone or a non-steroid.
So is Lola currently 5/13/23 suffering a disc episode or are you just giving the history that she had seen a vet back in April 2022
for a disc episode.
Is she currently on these two pain meds:
Methocarbamol (how many mgs dose?)
gabapentin (how many mgs dose?)
We are not certain where to provide support as it is not clear if Lola is today having a disc episode or if there is another reason you have written.
Look forward to learning more so we can quickly zero in on where to assist you.
Please do check out the Dodgerslist Homepage for a quick review what to know if you suspicion a currrent disc episode under "Suspect IVDD? Do This NOW
Will be watching for your reply.
