Katie update

Propalin which works with the majority of dogs made her quite ill - always sick. Apparently this happens in a very small percentage of dogs. She is now taking Incurin which is low dose oestrogen. She is getting very bad skin flareups. I just cant keep weight on her.

This week she passed really weird stuff - if I had not been up the garden with her, I would have thought she had ben sick. Vet is treating her for gastric upset with
Zantec. It has certainly helped with regard to the digestive problems

We got new shampoo for her allergies, different eye drops and a new stronger antihistamine for her allergies. Steroids work in 99% of dogs with allergies + are the obvious course of treatment however dogs with renal problems cannot tolerate steroids, they would make the renal condition much much worse

I was worried in case the gastric problems were the kidneys deteriorating yet again. Vet says if they recur he will repeat her bloods

On a bad day she will refuse to eat and nothing tempts her, just feel she is wasting away in front of you...:crying:

Re: Katie update

Really sorry to hear Katie is going through a bad spell.

One of Henry's tablets he takes every day is an alternative to Zantac - called Famatodine, he has it to prevent gastic problems and also to prevent stomach ulcers which could be caused by his chemotherapy drugs. It seems to be working well for him, so hopefully it will do the same for Katie.

There are so many medications which can't be used when there are any renal problems - as well as Henry has been lately, i just pray that he does not pick up any infections as treatment could be a real problem. Although the remaining kidney he has is working well, we can't take any risks as he does only have the one!

I hope the change in medication and the new shampoo work for Katie.

I found over the last week when Busta was going off his food that feeding him webbox worked quite well. I placed the roll in the fridge to firm it up a bit and cut it into quite chunky slices and hand fed it to him, he wouldn't touch his regular food but this really got him interested as he was being hand fed. He was actually eating more than he would have done with his regular food. Webbox is not something i would feed on a regular basis, but for those days when nothing else will work it is certainly worth a try . . . . . hand fed of course!!

Big hugs to all of you and especially katie:bighug:

Awww poor Katie, she certainly has been through it hasnt she :sad:

Finger crossed her gastric problems had nothing to do with her kidneys and she just had a wee stomach virus

Re: Katie update

I wil get some Webbox when out on Wednesday - thanks for that Caroline. Have to do a pet food shop again this week. It is certainly worth trying. I buy jars of baby food and sometimes she will take a very small amount of baby food off a spoon for me.
