Big Max is a 110 lb. dog that got his leg caught in the rope swing. He was in a lot of pain. We couldn’t let his leg touch anything without him yelping in pain. We gave him Mobic, a miracle pill to help his pain.

I took Mobic for years without a problem before I developed a serious side effect. I was hospitalized because of serious GI bleeding. Mobic did help the arthritis pain in my knees, but I will not take it any longer because of the risk.
