Both Dogs Bad News

Recommended Posts

Slight update:

 

Turns out our June was positive for HOOK worm, not heart worm.

Better, but still stinks.

We also contacted the place we've been buying the Interceptor and sound like we will get a decent refund AND have some of the vet cost refunded to us from the company.

 

We haven't gotten the results back about Sidney... still hoping for the best.

Things sounding better for June! Best would be if they were not sick at all, but at least June is treatable, and you saved some money, too. :candle for Sidney

Update:

 

Oncologist called yesterday... he definitely has CLL (chronic lymphomic leukemia).

This is good news as it’s the treatable one.

 

Meds were ordered and will be delivered Monday directly from the pharmacy.

He will get a higher dose for the first 2 weeks, then down to a lower dose for the remaining time he’s on them.

 

Still crossing fingers this works.

Thx everyone for the well wishes!

That sounds much better than the initial post!! Very happy that both are treatable! And much better hooks than heartworm - the heartworm treatment is a bear!

So far so good... no adverse affects from the meds since we started them Monday.

 

And though Prednisone is a PITA it's helped him regain an appetite.

Well I'd like to update this post with some good news:

 

Sidney went back for a 3 week blood cell count to check on the progress of his treatment...

 

The doc was blown away! His count was down to 13,000 where it was over 100,000 just 3 weeks prior! This is almost remission after only 3 weeks!

He goes back again in 6 weeks for another testing.

 

In the meantime he seems to have an appetite again and to have more energy so he has definitely improved just with the naked eye.

 

Go Sidney!

Update:

Sidney had another visit with the oncologist. Blood cell levels checked.

They were cut in half and he is very close to remission!

Prednisone was cut by a third, and will be cut again in 4 weeks, so less meds! 

He goes back in June for another levels test. Hopefully will be in remission by then!

His appetite is good and his energy is up. Go Sidney!

Another Oncology appt this Saturday... if all goes as planned Sidney may be in remission and can possibly get off the chemo!

Fingers crossed everyone!
