    Entry The most adorable thing about Tutu is how smart she is. She even speaks English words and knows what they mean. She says “no” and shakes her paw. She says “I wan” for I want and “I dowan” for I don’t want.

    Difficult Choice Between Leukeran And Prednisone

    Update: Tutu is doing much better. The prednisolone made her much worse. Cornell oncology vet and U of Wisconsin oncology vet both said it wouldn’t hurt to lower her steroid Budesonide to see if that was the problem. My internal medicine vet didn’t like my consulting other vets and suggested...

    Cerenia Injectable For Nausea And Vomiting

    The cobalaquin is hydrolyzed chicken flavored (not with protein that hurts IBD or triad disease) so they can chew it like a treat. I give one half daily as Tutu’s B12 was stable and she is little. Tutu is a lot more stable. Tutu’s new vet gave me a choice Tylosin antibiotic for her intestines...

    Blood Dripping From Urine Cultures Negative - Need Advise

    After all these bleeding reactions after urinalysis months later it happened again and this time we caught it - it is an infection needing a different antibiotic. No more urinalysis without a weeks worth of antibiotic to follow to prevent it from occurring again. I was right all along!!!!!
