  1. The first thing that comes to mind are stones....did you have the rads done already? Sometimes an ultrasound will be more definitive if you don’t initially see anything.
  2. Yup..this. The vet should have recommended a ct instead of surgery. You should see an oncologist that works with a radiation oncologist. Stereotactic radiation may prove curative depending on how or how not the tumor has advanced.
  3. If your vet placed your greyhound on prednisone for a platelet count barely below the reference range you new to either find a new vet or educate your current one one the differences in greyhound blood values verses other breeds.
  4. Agreed...awful to think this 13 year old dog may have been struggling. Regarding pain...I would put this dog on galliprant ( considered one of the “safer” nsaids)....at 13 one must assume this dog is most certainly dealing with arthritis.
  5. An 80lb dog can absolutely be given 800mg every 8 hours of gabapentin but, perhaps one should re-think their drug of choice for a dog in that much pain. Codine/Tylenol should be considered or amantadine.......
  6. Please don’t rule out radiation as an option for treatment—at the very least it will help alleviate the pain.
  7. I’m sorry Irene...she may have had a brain tumor...circling and blindness is a tell tale sign. I lost my beautiful Shannon to a brain tumor...I know how hard it is.
  8. I would try the prescription diet (Easy to digest, low fat) and start famotidine or Prilosec.
  9. Before your next vet visit medicate him...ask your vet about giving trazadone prior to your visit. No vet visit should be allowed to be that traumatic to your dog. Please consider a second option...sounds like he’s not improving and you may have been given a misdiagnosis. If your vet actually cares as they should they would welcome you with a referral.
  10. To the best of my knowledge you can’t ice that type of strain. Have you tried gabapentin? If so what dose? I good way to diagnose I.S.is to palpate through the rectum and lift the tail vertically. Did your vet perform any radiographs?
  11. Does she have an ear infection?
  12. Just attended a lunch and learn..topic was Proheart12...I asked a lot of questions to the veterinarian lecturing. The Dr knew all about the problems with hookworm resistance, larva leak etc especially in the racing greyhounds... He claimed that the Proheart12 injection is a viable option to be used. He was pretty adamant it will be a successful treatment option.
