Its not a drug you want to keep them on long term but its possible to use it for a short time and then start the glucosomine with chondroitin at the same time and while the glucosomine is taking its time to work the Remadyl is giving relief. Or she can start her on the Elder Aide GM at the same time she starts the Remadyl. Elder Aide GM is just as good as the others. But I would for sure start her on the Remadyl before she gets any worse. Its not a good thing when they cant get up by themselves but it is a help that its the hind legs rather than the front where all the weight is carried. They should see an improvement within two days on the Remadyl and if the pig is moving better than sprinkle the oats out so she has to get a little exercise picking them up.
