Both jess and tyson.....chilli, con and I..., madness!

Very funny, con had to keep tyson and jess away as if chilli cried ( they all got yrly shots) tyson would go off. Its his kitten! Chillis great... Tysons healthy as. Jess has a tumour on her toes. Shell loose 2 toes if they remove it. Shes 13. The vet agreed... leave her be, too old for surgery and its weight bearing toes. She may never walk again if they op. I was worried about anesthetic at her age. The vet said, realistically, at her age... do nothing bar anti inflamm, she doesnt have 5yrs and surgery is not going to help her. She'll just live around it and surgery will either shorten or end her being able to ever bear weight again on that foot. But..,, shes 13! The vet said.,, she's a big dog! Not many her size, breed make 11 so..,,, she had her annual shot and chartrophen and histamil so.... day by day but shes doing well.

Just a note to make everyone aware..,,

Cartrophen has been brilliant for her very bad arthritis in one leg in particular, however..., she would pant so hard for hrs after the shot till the next morn. It was extreme, far worse than an overheated dog.  The vet rang the lab that makes it here. They had never heard of a reaction to cartrophen unless the dog had a reaction to c5. Jess never had a prob with c5 but did with cartrophen. It was a first for our vet and the lab.  They now give her hystamil 10 mins before cartrophen and it completely stops her reaction to it yet still gives her the benifit.

Sorry for the book but...

I wanted everyone to know incase your baby has cartrophen and reacts to it. Its a great saviour for arthritis, but if theres a reaction in the first 24 hrs. A antihistamine stops it.
