  1. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    This is just my opinion OK? But it sounds like somewhere in the lumbar vertebrae and what’s causing the legs to do these weird things is neurological damage. My old miniature poodle Pork Chop had...
  2. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    Well I’ve had two dogs with herniated discs and several with IVDD (invertebral Disc Disease/Degeneation). The herniated discs happened when they jumped down off a chair. But all it takes is twisting...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support. Fortunately at the moment, Angel is feeling fine. IF I gave her ‘junk food’ she would eat every bite.�� She seems to have good energy and she hasn’t...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    Well some bad news. Angel’s liver enzymes are to the moon again. I think her problem is the chemo (Chlorambucil) sometimes it can become toxic to the liver/kidneys and after restarting it on Tuesday...
  5. Re: Ginger-16 yo Poochon (Bichon Poodle mix)

    Hi Angela, I think poodles are predisposed to everything. Bichons are one of the breeds that seem to get TCC more easily. Angel was only on Apoquel a couple of weeks because it sent her liver enzymes...
  6. Re: Ginger-16 yo Poochon (Bichon Poodle mix)

    Hi Angela, FYI, I looked back thru my folder and I paid $230 for Angel’s BRAF test and that included overnight shipping which I had requested to get the test ASAP. I think Sentinel charges around...
  7. Re: Lena, Teacup Poodle w/ adrenal tumor - Lena is now an angel

    Oh Joan, it’s so difficult isn’t it? Nothing quite fills the hole in our hearts they leave behind. Wishing you peace and happy memories as the birthdays and holidays pass by and you hold your...
  8. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    They usually take blood pressure on a forelimb. The cuff goes between the elbow and the ankle. It is certainly possible that somewhere along the line she has dislocated her hip but that would be...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    Just a quick update. “Miss Picky” seems to be doing pretty well. Trying to get her to eat a sensible diet isn’t the easiest but she picks at it. She seems to be feeling pretty good and I am slowly...
  10. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    They’re not as heavy as they look. I found they run a bit large. I bought two and returned the one that was too big. I also,found they have a tendency to drop forward. That was easily resolved with a...
  11. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    PetSmart should have little caps. They have a little Velcro strap under the chin to hold it on. There’s a protective visor called Optivisor. Amazon carries them. Not really expensive maybe $30. I...
  12. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    I think interceptor and Sentinel are Essentially the same drug.
  13. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    I know it’s pretty overwhelming. No, not just ‘pretty’ overwhelming, it IS totally overwhelming. I’m not really one of the Cushing experts here. I have a Bichon recently diagnosed and he gets 10 mg....
  14. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    You definitely have your hands full and I can understand how emotionally stressful it is. I’ve dealt with a number of very similar issues. My dog Angel has a history of elevated liver enzymes,...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    I thought I replied yesterday but guess I didn’t do something right. My girl is home and she was eating before we left the parking lot at the ve school. She ate pretty well yesterday with no...
  16. Re: Ginger-16 yo Poochon (Bichon Poodle mix)

    Hello Angela,
    Of course you have to do what you feel is best for your baby. I did see some similarities in our girls though. Angel is 15 as best we can determine. She has an abnormal liver, missing...
  17. Re: Ginger-16 yo Poochon (Bichon Poodle mix)

    HI, not really an expert on Cushings but I do have a toy poodle diagnosed March 2019 with Transitional Cell Carcinoma. Given Ginger’s age, etc. I would have your vet order a Cadet BRAF Mutation test...

    Thank you all for the positive thoughts and prayers!! I did manage to get Angel to eat a few bites of turkey. Not much but it was something. She still seems a little painful in the belly but the...

    UGH, heading to the hospital shortly. Angel seems to have developed some potential neurological symptoms so they want me to watch some videos of her moving and help them assess. See how she reacts to...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    Long day, lots of back and forth with her doctor. BUT, it doesn’t seem to be pancreatitis. She feels it’s gastroenteritis. They did abdominal and thoracic Xrays as well as further ultrasound. She is...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    Thank you so very much! At least I know that if things become more critical she is in the best possible place. They had her on a number of IV medications including fentanyl for pain, a couple of anti...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    Angel is back in the hospital. She continued to regurgitate and food seems to nauseate her so I think it’s for the best. This way Internal Medicine can get working on her right away and try to get...

    Back in the day we had a lab who went to work with us. Charlie would steal the guy’s brown bag lunches off the loading dock if they weren’t careful. LOL! That dog would eat anything and everything so...
