    Hi there. Sorry to hear your pup's been unwell. Rheumocam is an anti-inflammatory - it's a similar type of drug to ibuprofen, or voltarol, for humans. It sounds like maybe your vet thinks Jake has some inflammation - but there are lots of causes of this. I suggest writing down any questions you have, so you can ask them when you go in on thursday. Your vet should be able to explain to you what they are looking to treat, diagnose, or rule out, with this medication. Sometimes vets forget that we don't understand medicine the way they do - please do keep asking questions until they've given you explanations that make sense! :)

    I hope Jake feels better soon xx
