Send Good Thoughts To Cricket

Recommended Posts

I dropped Cricket off this a.m. for an overnight stay at the specialty vet. She's getting intradural chemo treatment for her spinal cord disease -- the neurologist is thinking it's an autoimmune disease and it might help suppress the inflammation. Also if it's cancer, but it sounds like he thinks it's more autoimmune.


I hope this is the right thing for her. She has been on Prednisone for over a year and just recently had a big relapse where she wasn't righting her paws and was unable to really stand/walk without major assistance. She did improve with an antibiotics course, but it sounds like the neurologist doesn't think that's the problem. I'm crossing my fingers that this is the right thing for her.


It would be miraculous to pick her up tomorrow and see her walking well again.

Lots of good thoughts coming your way Cricket! And to you too, Aerosmom, you've certainly had more than your fair share of Greyhound medical issues this year.
