That's a relief! You know how I feel about Rosey <3 Mom's little Terrier, Katy, had arthritis in her back and spurs on her spine and did well on Rimadyl for five years. She was 18 when she was ready to go a couple of weeks ago. I hope that gives you a bit more peace of mind about Rosey Oh, and she had the same ability to spit out pills, even tiny little pieces of pills. I wound up either sticking them in those little Hillshire Farms cocktail wieners or crushing them up in some stinky canned food.
