    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    I did know Metacam is an anti inflammatory, and yet I still refer to it as pain meds. Why, I don't know. I do know that he seems better equipped to eat when he's had it, as when he hasn't. And I...

  9. Mouth: Re: Issues related to tooth operation—very complicated medical history
