Great news! Way to go Dudley.

I'd keep up the pain meds until I knew he was a good as he was going to get and not in pain anymore.

I would keep ramping down his pain meds slowly and keep an eye out for how he's doing. Melixocam is a really great medicine but it is a medication and can have side effects. Give it when he needs it, don't when he doesn't.

Thanks so much everyone. Dudley is sitting on my lap and is tugging on my sweatshirt, letting me know he wants a little snack! He knows it works, cheeky boy.
