Re: Rain starts chemo today

Rain did not handle her 2nd dose of chemo as well as her 1st and her cbc came back showing her white blood cell count as extremely low. :( So now I am starting her on some antibiotics and I have to monitor her temperature to make sure she does not get an infection. And her for her next dose of chemo...

Re: Rain starts chemo today

Thanks - I am waiting on a call back from the vet to get her opinion. I am hesitant to try satin balls since they have raw meat and want to get it cleared by the vet before I go that route. I will also ask her if puppy food would be an ok option or what else I could add to her food to fatten her up....

Re: Rain starts chemo today

Rain had her 2nd dose of chemo on Saturday after getting an all clear from the oncologist on Friday to continue with treatment. Her bloodwork is still looking good and her internal organs are holding up ok so far. Her main issue is her weight. I had them give me her weight from when she was in for h...

Re: Rain starts chemo today

Rain is doing well so far! Other than being thin you wouldn't know there was anything wrong with her. She goes in on Friday for a recheck with the oncologist and then she will get her 2nd dose of chemo on Saturday, so hopefully she will take her 2nd dose as well as she did her 1st.

Re: not eating

Timas Mom - There was nothing wrong with Misskiwi67's suggestions. When a puppy is not eating, has diarrhea, and is not acting like itself the first thing that comes to mind is parvo and then an obstruction (puppies chew on everything!). It is always better to be safe then sorry when it comes to pup...

Re: My Tigger has Cushing

Yeah Dr. Bruyette is the Medical Director at VCA WLA and Dr. Owen is the surgeon actually performing the surgeries. The 2 articles I read just came out this October and only 14 animals had been operated on, so I think the receptionist at the specialty group you are familiar with was confused as ther...

Re: My Tigger has Cushing

Sorry to hear about Tigger, Val I do not know much about cushings, so I cannot offer much advice. I did do some research for you though and found out the vet that teamed up with the human surgeon. It was VCA West LA and Cedar-Sinai who teamed up to start doing surgeries on canines for pituitary remo...

Re: Rain starts chemo today

Her appetite is still really good and she loves to eat. It actually said on the paper that loss of appetite might happen, but thankfully that has not occurred. I am sure foods aimed at weight gain would be fine, but I will ask my vet when she calls with blood results tomorrow just to be sure. What i...

Re: Rain starts chemo today

Update - Rain went in for a CBC test yesterday to check her red and white blood cell count and we should have the results today, but I might not hear from my vet until Monday. Her nose was a little drippy last night, so I am worried that she might have to be put on antibiotics depending on how her i...

Re: Rain starts chemo today

Rain is doing really well so far other than being a little extra needy I haven't noticed any changes in her. She did pee on the bathroom floor yesterday, but that was my fault as I was ignoring her urgent requests to go out and she was trying her best to hold it - I think the prednisone is definitel...

Rain starts chemo today

We had a visit yesterday with the oncologist and to discuss the start of chemo treatment. Rain had blood taken to get a baseline, so we will know how the chemo affects her internal organs mainly her liver and her kidneys. We will take blood samples 7 days after every chemo dose and if we see any liv...
