Willow: Do you know if your med is just for pain or is it an anti-inflammatory? Chloe had a pinched nerve in her neck and the pain meds didn't seem to do anything to help but the anti-inflammatory helped a lot and kept her comfortable. (She made a full recovery after several weeks). Also, each animal reacts differently to meds so if one doesn't work another might. Let us know what your vet says and how you are doing next week. Our thoughts are with you! POTP hug

Chico had a pinched nerve in his back and would not even move without crying, took him in to the emergency vet and he prescribed him Rymadil. I just gave him around 3 doses and he was fine.

You should ask your vet about Rymadil or some anti inflammatory medication.
