Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts ASAP
My vet suggested going to specialist for an ultrasound for further insight. I have not (yet) decided to take her for fear of the costs and having truly no beneficial difference in the treatment course, any thought???Last Nov LilyPearl had a cancerous tumor removed with clear margins, then was put on chemo for approx 5 weeks. As you well know this was thousands of $. Just can't do that again, and if all they are going to suggest is more n more tests that would still lead to the same treatment, do you really think there might be some other treatment she might need? My vet did not think there was any infection as per blood work... I would not want any surgery done, so???
Had tried to add this but you had already answered will send along now...
Lily's liver is enlarged enough to push her stomach back and up... not giving her much room in there. I have been feeding her fish/potatoes as opposed to her Earthborn Hollistic Prim Ntl dog food... maybe that food is too hi protein long term? I had just started feeding it to her after the cancer. Lately some diarrhea/loose stools and some throwing up mostly nothing. She only at the fish combo mix a couple times and then refused to eat... one day w/o much food... yesterday. Today she agreed to eat some hamburger meat, and tonight more hamburger meat w/some of her EHPN food. I am feeding much smaller amts more X per day as directed.
Yes, you have helped... thanks!Now, if I rate your answers will I still be able to continue this discussion with you? I did accept the 1 week free trial but not sure how all this works... Susan
YES about the slow change in foods... I did not do that with the fish/pot diet... forgot... sure that probably caused some of her probs... sighs...
My reg vet wanted to try that pill as mentioned and a retest of blood etc in 2 weeks... it's been about a week on that pill... now to wait and see if better diet helps... or just go for ultrasound?
