Yesterday would have been chemo day for Tanner. He went to the vet school in the morning, but when I filled out his paperwork, I had to mention that he was sneezing some and had developed a runny eye. They felt it was best not to stress him more with chemo, so he came home with some antibiotics and we will go back next week to try again. They still did his blood work, and that is looking good.
In paleness news...he is looking pinker lately! We had stopped his heart meds while I was out of town, and are weaning back on now, so I believe they are the culprits of the paleness. We are trying a half dose of his atenolol to see if it controls the heart rate enough without taking it too low. We have also switched from Enalapril to Benazepril. These drugs do the same thing for Tanner, but the Benazepril is processed through the liver instead of the kidneys, so in the long run may be better for him. With him being at the vet school each week for the cancer, the cardiologist can pop in more often as check on him too. They are doing a great job of working together!
He continues to eat well, play, and love on his baby, Ollie. Life is good for Tanner at the moment, and we hope to keep it this way!
