  1. Oh no... Scout gave so many such hope in the fight of cancer.
  2. https://news.vin.com/VINNews.aspx?articleId=56116
  3. I would ask about any new trials you may be able to get her in or if he knows of any other immunotherapy treatments that may be available. She’s beautiful—all the best. Damn that cancer.
  4. I don’t believe that’s even been documented
  5. Booked solid for the next century. Found a deal and booked at Country Inn. Still not sure I can attend (starting new job next week) but, I can cancel if need be.
  6. Just checked the Quality Inn on York-AAA price is $99/nt (pet fee is another $10/nt). I love the Country Inn I just can’t justify $230/nt
  7. Nothing in stone.... if I book a room I need to make sure I can cancel last minute.
  8. Anyone book at County Inn and Suites? I’ve stayed there for the last few years and always found it a lovely place to stay....was just quoted $198/night plus $30/night non-refundable pet fee. Guess I need to rethink my choice of lodging.
  9. Check for Lyme disease. Carpal (wrist) pain is not an uncommon symptom.
  10. I would be curious to see the anesthesia protocol used.
  11. What are your dogs symptoms? Often food allergies will cause red, itchy skin +/- ear infections. If soft stool or diarrhea is present I highly recommend to stop changing foods. Ask your vet about prescribing Hills W/D. It’s a high fiber/low fat food. Fat is hard to digest often producing soft stool. The fiber will bulk the stool and slow down the gi tract.
  12. To answer your question regarding proin..it should not be used in dogs with suspected renal disease. It may also increase thirst. I loathe proin. The blood work results you posted appear to be of normal values for greyhounds..low wbc, lower platelet count and elevated rbc. Of course not seeing the actual values may change things. Just want to correct the above post-I’m an LVT not a DVM. ;-) Edited to add link. https://veterinarypartner.vin.com/default.aspx?pid=19239&catId=102894&id=4951490
  13. Please discontinue the proin. Can not believe your vet started her on that-did they even check your dogs blood pressure first? If she started to drink more water after starting the metronidazole I would stop that too. Metro is not without side effects. Did you happen to run a full urinalysis? K/D is pretty high in fat to make it more palatable so if the diarrhea has resolved while eating that perhaps you can return to your regular food (fat is hard to digest and is often the culprit of soft stools, diarrhea and even pancreatitis). Her bloods don’t look bad-do you you have old results to compare too? One thing you should check..palpate that thyroid region very carefully. One of my girls was pu/pd (excessive urinating and drinking)-found a small thyroid mass. Turned out she had thyroidcarcinoma. Once the tumor was removed the pu/pd immediately stopped. Long shot I know but, it’s easy enough to check. Finally I would have abdominal radiographs done +/- an ultrasound done.
  14. I wonder if an abrasion from the opposing nail.
