I'm so very sorry that this is happening to Penny. May I recommend that you mention to the vets treating Penny that dosages for greyhounds may need to be adjusted relative to the dose that would be given to another breed of the same weight. Greyhound physiology is different from other dogs and this may not have been taken into account when the dose was calculated. I'd ask Dr. Couto his opinion to be sure, but that is my understanding of dosing GHs.

 

Gentle scritches to Penny. And thanks to you both for blazing the scary trail of science so that many people and pets in the future may benefit from your bravery.

Penny update: It's been a day and a half since the overdose.

She is still in ICU and doing okay. Her bloodwork

looks good. She does have a fever and is stiff

when she walks, both probable side effects of the

medication. The doctors are slightly more optomistic

today that she could pull thru this. The maker of the

drug is advising them, and they too said that it is

possible for her to pull thru this. I am very hopeful,

but trying to be realistic and remember that she

could die from this.

 

My prayers are with her and you. I would be very very po'ed at the the clinic for this error!

Hang tight, little girl. YOu can do it.

 

This is inexcusable. Right now the most important thing is to get her through this. After that, consult a lawyer.

Another update: Penny is holding on. She seems very tired, but otherwise

is okay. She has lots of shaved areas all over her body so

that they can put the IV in a different place every day and

so they can draw blood from different spots. She looks

awful because of that, but I'll take that if that's the worst

of it. So far, except for diarrhea and a temp last night

(not today), she is doing good. Her doctor went out and

got her a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store! Of course

she loves it! The doctors say another week or so until

we can begin to think that she might pull thru this.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.
