    I'd lost track of this thread for a while and followed your story from the first post up until this post, all within the course of an hour. Sounds promising, Teger. Best of luck.

    As I type this, there's a 10 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback's head resting on my thigh and a 13 year old JRT on my lap after a morning walk so life feels pretty good here for now.

    Meanwhile.

    Torn apart his face with fangs or knocked teeth out with skull? I've seen dogs jump up while greeting and knock out teeth.



    King of the mountain.


    Glad it's working.

    Best of luck, Teger. It's a terrifying aspect watching a dog become ill or receive treatment. I'm glad to read that your dog has responded to it so early on and please keep us updated.

    Yes, Milo is a Wheaten. I don't see a lot of them around and when we do we always have to go make new friends!


    Thanks. He thinks he is the Shizzz too.

    huge improvements over the last few days - she's still VERY yellow, but her appetite is up (she's actually eating her normal dog food for the first time .. in weeks! as I type this), and she has a ton of energy.

    some setbacks:

    last night ivy was acting really lethargic, took her temperature and she had a fever of 105. we took her to the emergency vet and they ran some blood work -- her white blood cell count is good, but her liver enzymes are still elevated -- and they recommended that we leave her there to get antibiotics and IV fluids at a price of $1500 a day for up to 4 days (jesus). I declined, had them prescribe an antibiotic and took her home. we had our home call vet come today and set her up with an IV for $110. what a difference. good news is her fever is down today and hopefully she'll start improving soon.

    $1,500 a day! What was the breakdown on that number? Are they just trying to take advantage or is there a legitimate explanation? My dog tore her ACL and her surgery costs 2,600 including everything from Xrays to post-op check-ups for weeks after.

    well it's an emergency hospital, so everything costs 4x as much. the breakdown was something like .. $400/day to leave her there (doctor's fees, tech fees, bed fee), $300 a day for the IVs, $300 a day for blood tests (which is ironic, considering this is the same place we see our oncologists and the same test using literally the same equipment costs $40...), then some additional injections/radiographs. it would have ended up costing more than the entire chemo regimen, including all the meds, checkups and ancillary costs. no thank you!

    she's basically back to normal now, which is great but it's making keeping her from running off and tearing out her IV harder. right now she's watching my girlfriend eat ice cream. hopefully she's over whatever bug she had -- and for 1/10th of the cost and not having to sit alone in n awful vet hospital.
