Puppy Limping from Cipro.

While at our annual Dance Event in Palm Springs, Ca., I was talking to a friend of mine. She said that she had been thinking about me and about my Cirpo story. You see, she has a six month old puppy that needed surgery. She came through the surgery just fine and was given Cipro. When my friend took her puppy home, she was limping. Back to the doctor she went and was told that it was growing pains.

Now, I don't know about you, but puppy sure didn't have "growing pains" BEFORE the Cipro. The limping occurred after she was given Cipro. My guess, and I would bet money on it, she is suffering from the side effects of Cipro! Poor puppy!

  1. I have seen other reports of dogs being "floxed" from Fluoroquinolones. One report, can't remember where I read it, a man had been floxed, and shortly after, his dog. He made a comment about how they hobble around in pain together. Poor pup. We can at least verbalize what is wrong with us, but the puppy can't.
