Yesterday, Tanner had to made a quick trip to his regular vet for a CBC, to determine if he was eligible for chemo. All looked good, so we did our chemo and ice cream routine last night. This time, instead of pills, he was given capsules, and they seemed to go down a bit easier for him. I will try to request those next time too.
Right now, our biggest issue at the house is with Cousin Sophie. She does not like Tanner at the moment and will squeal and hiss and fuss at him, even if he just walks into the room with her. I don't know if she is smelling something different about him because of the cancer or the drugs, or if she is experiencing a problem herself. This has been going on for sometime now and we are not sure exactly what to do about it. We have moments of peace and moments of unrest in the house.
We have plugged in feliway, but have not really noticed an improvement. Has anyone tried any of the essential oil blends by Jackson Galaxy?
I will be asking the oncologists if Tanner can resume wearing his calming collar. I don't want to give him anymore pills at this time, but feel that the problem really lies with Sophie right now anyway.
Otherwise, Tanner has two weeks off from treatment before heading to the vet school on November 24th for another dose of chemo.
