Re: Chase earned his wings

I am so sorry that Chase passed. I had a scare with Melanoma in one of my dogs, and I know how horrible this is. Also lost a cat to extensive mouth cancer (inoperable osteosarcoma) - it is...

Re: Meter readings

One Touch Ultra Mini is not the same as Ultra 2.
I highly recommend buying this meter on Amazon as you can pick it up for under $20 (vs. Walgreen's selling at $70).

Re: Meter readings

I called Abbott and complained - they sent me a new meter, and the problem became less. I did notice that sometimes, the numbers were inconsistent especially if the blood drop was too much or too...

Re: Maggie (I've cried a lot)

I suspect that your dog may need a bit more insulin or less food. Activity and exercise caused my dog to require less insulin, so at night when he was sleeping, his body required more insulin or...

Re: My Angel Cobbler

I am so sorry. This must have been so devastating.

Re: A New Canine Companion!

MRSA contributed to Harry's passing - and our vets said that MRSA lives in all of us. It tends to cause active infections in immune compromised creatures and people.
Interestingly, my Audrey had...

Re: Bottoms up Leash

I used it on Harry, but I did not love it (and neither did Harry).
Our orthopedic vet recommended Blue Dog Help Em Up harness - we left this on Harry, and this was much more useful.

Re: Eileen's Mildred

Eileen,
I am totally sympathize. I am so glad to see you here.
The pain does not seem to go away - it seems that it becomes a part of you and you learn to live with it.

Re: Hunter passed this morning Jan 16

Jean,
I am so sorry to hear about this. My James' passing was also sudden and unexpected - and I had a real hard time coping with it. My heart breaks for you.
Hunter was lucky to have you as a...

Re: Cataracts

Harry never developed cataracts despite not being in good diabetes control, Cushing's and being on a not-so-great low-protein/high carb Royal Canin MP. His opthalmologist speculated that dogs with...

Re: Eileen's Mildred

Re: Fiber supplement

I used to give Harry both fiber from veggies (green beans and broccoli) and water soluble fiber from Metamucil (make sure it is sugar free - just inulin). Our holistic vet and IMS think that a body...

Re: Max - Overnight change in dog

Max peacefully passed last night - according to Jaimee's posting on K9kidney. She did the most loving thing she could - Max has joined our angels at the bridge. I think Harry is showing him the...

Re: Soaphie

Tami,
Harry - with all his many problems - did fine with his toe removal surgery. Note that we gave him 1/3 of his usual dosage - but he ended up going a bit low during the surgery. They did say...

Re: Mindy

Many things could elevate Alk Phos - you need to look at ALT for liver values, and Mindy's value is fine. With bilirubin low, and albumin high, I do not think Mindy has any liver dysfunction (and I...

Re: Diggydog

I agree with Patty. I would be calling the vet office every hour until they get one of the vets to give me the results and fax or email the scanned report to me.

Re: Diggydog

Have you tried melatonin? Not the time release one - the vets recommended Harry get 3mg of melatonin for night time waking-up and anxiety. For a small dog, I think 1.5mg. I did not use it on Harry...

Re: Max - Overnight change in dog

Are you giving Pepcid? with kidney faillure, dogs often get acid stomach or ulcer. Many kidney pups and cats get Pepcid and Carafate.
Are you also using any phosphate binder?
