Take That Cancer . . . Clear X-rays

September 10th, 2018 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Casey and Jet both had clear X-rays today.  Casey is nearly 9 months from diagnosis (Osteo) and Jet 3 1/2 months (Hemangio).  His vet calls Casey her miracle dog (she gave him 2 weeks to 2 months last December), but we knew that already.  So . . . Hooray!

Casey is on metronomic therapy again for the last couple months, with 100 mg Rimadyl daily and Cytoxan every other day.  He also gets Maximum Recovery and Turkey Tail mushroom powders from Canine Matrix, K9 Immunity Plus, and fish oil.  Jet is on double doses of the mushroom powders and K9 Immunity Plus, and a fish oil capsule with every meal.  The mushroom powders just had a 15% price increase, but I guess we’ll have to swallow that.

Casey also had one dose of the Aratana osteosarcoma vaccine, but between him tolerating it poorly and the cost, we stopped after that one dose.

Happy day at our house!

    SWEET! A big huge CONGRATS to Casey and Jet! And you, my friend, for being such the team leader and coach. One cancer diagnosis is hard, but two? Well you are truly amazing with your great attitude and ability to tackle both, what an inspiration!

    Sorry to hear about the vaccine side effects, that is such a bummer. But good for you for knowing when to say when and follow Casey’s lead. From here on out, everything is icing on the cake no matter what. ENJOY!!!!
