Tanner spent yesterday at the vet school getting bloodwork, examination and the iv dose of doxorubicin. He did well with his treatment, even though there were tons of dogs in the clinic when we checked in that morning. I like dogs, but I do wish dog owners would be a bit more respectful of the cat in the carrier and not allow their dogs to come over to him.
Here's Tan on the way home...his eyes are big and drugged because they gave him a light sedative to administer the IV, since it runs over 20 minutes and they needed him to be still. Tanner was bumped up to his larger blue carrier, since his weight has been creeping up some. He weighs 15 lbs 13 oz right now. The oncologists love that he is eating so well and doesn't appear to be fazed by the chemo.
As we were leaving the vet school, a rainbow appeared for us...I hope you can see it. We will take this as a good sign for Tanner!
Medicine Update - Tanner is now finished with his prednisolone!
Sophie Update - We have been trying the Spirit Essence by Jackson Galazy and see some improvements. We ordered "Peacemaker". We spray it on the blankets where Sophie lays most of the time, and also on Tanners bed. Sometimes we spray our hands and rub it on Sophie. She at least seems to be directing her angst more equally to all the boys and not targeting Tanner. She is going to the vet on Dec 8th and Auntie will talk about other options. In the meantime, she continues getting her pain meds daily, for arthritis, and we will continue using the spray.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone this year...we all have so much to be Thankful for!
