So sorry that Kingston is hurting. So sorry for the worry and deep concern you and your DH must endure: we hurt so much when our furbabies are in pain - it's heartbreaking! Perhaps you might ask Kingston's doctor to call-in a prescription to dull the pain until he can be examined. I've got a prescription for Tramadol for Eddy: it helps a little. Also, a heating pad may be of some comfort from time to time, along with a soft quilt on top of his bed, and pillows he can cuddle against. I also use a little of organic hemp oil which can help somewhat. But, as you know, his momma's love, kisses, and cuddles will help ease the pain. Prayers for Kingston and you and DH.



Kingston is taking 50mg Tramadol and 100mg Carprofen twice a day.

Building a ramp for Kingston today.


The front of our home is ground level, but the back has a huge screened in deck that is off ground construction, there's a landing and 4 steps leading down to the back yard.


Kingston is having trouble navigating the steps and tripped yesterday, so DH is building him a ramp, covered in indoor/outdoor carpet for traction and with sides, so he doesn't misstep off of the side.

I had a ramp built for one of my dogs a long time ago.  It was just like that.  I hope it will work well for Kingston.  Do you have a ramp for him to use to get in the car?  I think you said you have an SUV.

Day after day the whole day through, wherever my road inclined, four feet said 'I'm coming with you!' and trotted along behind. Kipling

We had a ramp there for our last 2 kids, when they got older and had mobility issues.


I had decided we wouldn't have any other pets due to our age, so we removed it.


But then Kingston and his past just melted my heart.Heart


We're looking into ramps for my SUV and DH's truck, open to suggestions from our 'Pet Lovers' family if anyone has experience with them and can recommend a brand.
