mareyeka Posted August 22, 2008 Share Posted August 22, 2008 Hmm, we're visiting so often these days, maybe I should just rent a room there... Just came back from the vet yet again. The wonderful magic drug, Cartrophen did incredibly well but it only lasted for two weeks, it should last a minimum of a month. Then, Dee's hair started falling out and her coat is a very dull black with huge chunks of hair coming out whenever you pet her. The vet didn't like how badly chewed up Dee's leg is, so we now have some prednisone for her to try to help ease her discomfort and heal up the leg; we're afraid of another infection setting in. The vet was thinking that she may be having kidney problems or her thyroid, but wanted to wait with the blood tests to get her leg into a bit better shape, so we're going back next week for the tests. Dee is still a happy girlie, but you can see she's having pain and it's killing me to see her like that. Here's to hoping that she'll feel better with the pred and then maybe we'll try the cartrophen again.
