Good News For H&m


Recommended Posts

We brought in all 5- (still getting used to saying 5)

 

Teddy for his annual.

 

Chloe for her T4

 

Elsie for her nails and to make sure she has no more lumps or bumps. She has gotten testy with ME checking all of a sudden.

 

Ollie's ears.

 

And Beau Beau for his nails and weight check....

 

 

Teddy got just rabies and distemper- weight holding steady @ 80. Lean, ribs showing and very muscular. Beautiful boy.

 

Chloe has gained 3 pounds and is up to 71. Doesn't look heavy but we won't let that get away from us. She tends to gain 2 or 3 in the winter especially because of her thyroid.

 

Elsie- thank GOD- lump and bump free and she gained 5 pounds. Her racing weight was 63. She looks good.

 

Beau- holding steady at 64. His racing weight was 63. He looks greyt. The budesonide was the best thing we could have done. He is soooooooooooooooooooooooo back.

 

And The Ollister is up to 87 pounds and yet all ribs show. He has gained 17 pounds since we got him back in late November but he was 11 pounds BELOW racing weight when we got him. He looks greyt now. He could use another 3 but he could stay where he is too.

 

He does have an ear infection, secondary to the scratching/inflammation.

 

All nails done. Everyone had their heartworm. a 50 minute vet visit and everyone is happy, especially mommy!!!

 

To give you all an idea of just how mellow and unfazed Ollie is about things, while the others were getting nails or blood done, he was laying out sleeping on the floor as oppossed to everyone else who was trying to hide so they did not have to be next. My 4 greyhounds and Ollie, the dog!

Well, now. :)

 

 

I know you know how scared I was to change from pred to the budesonide. There were no or very few clinical trials especially with GH - it was all antedotal. Even Dr. Couto had no experience with it but wished me luck. My vet did her reading last year and said there was nothing new but if I wanted to try it, she was on board. He was just so flat and nothing like the Beau I once knew. It wasn't my dog. to have this insane puppy back - there are no words. He is not scavenging around looking for food and just laying there catatonic. Well, maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, but he was pretty flat from being on the pred for so long.

 

Very pleased.

Wonderful news! all around, and this isn't where I remind you I still crush on Ollie in a big way, no pun intended. So glad your pups are doing so well, but of course they are, they have your care!

We keep an eye out for Beau, as you might suspect. Very pleased to hear this! "Anecdotal" can be very important information. Even data aren't applicable to every situation. Btw, if you learn anything about how to remedy hair loss in long-term budesonide use, Spencer would really like to know! smile.gif

I can only imagine what people in the waiting room were thinking with all those greys :lol

 

Our vets see a lot of greyhounds. When I was there, 2 were leaving, 2 were coming in but we win with the most!

Robin this is such great news! I'm thrilled for you...great news all around and ESPECIALLY for Beau and Elsie! :)

 

One year I took the 4 dogs (we didn't have Sutra yet) AND the 2 cats. That was a little bit much - carrying a cat carrier along with walking the dogs was tough! Sounds like Mr. Ollie was the perfect patient :) Fritz often lays on the floor when we're waiting for the doc to come in - in the winter the floors are warm because they're heated, and in the summer they're nice and cool B)

That is all good news, especially about Beau and Elsie! And what about Ollie???

 

"And The Ollister is up to 87 pounds and yet all ribs show. He has gained 17 pounds since we got him back in late November but he was 11 pounds BELOW racing weight when we got him. He looks greyt now. He could use another 3 but he could stay where he is too."

 

Good lord, we should call him 'tank'! And here I was happy my boys have both gained some weight with Charlie topping the scales at 78.5lbs!!!

Wonderful news...you really deserved some good news though! I'm glad all your persistence, patience, experimentation, hope, fear, and most important, love paid off this time.

 

Hopefully, we get to meet again at GIG this year.
