We use combination therapy. Typically we start with Rimadyl. Though prednisilone and rimadyl together is not widely recommended we will use together if protecting the stomach with famotidine and sucralfate. If this is not controlling the discomfort we will add tramadol. Occasionally I will try gabapentin but I have not been overly impressed with its effectiveness.
