So, it is seeming clear that *whatever* it was from, it was some kind of bleed, probably into his abdomen. Of course hemangio can do this, as can the blood parasites. Kicking myself for lowering the doxy in Dec frown He has recovered some, which is a good sign, but it worries me that it is a very slow recovery, it really takes everything he has to maneuver himself where he wants to go. I can see a scenario either way, so I am trying real hard not to speculate and just wait until Tuesday.

I spoke with the homeopathic vet this afternoon. There are several indications of an increased systemic inflammatory response, and I was hoping that this pointed to parasites, but she said that what I was seeing can also be caused by hemangio, so that was shot down. I did go back to his former acute remedy, the pulsatilla 200c to help with the nasal issues for now.

Until we know more on Tuesday, she wants me to work on normalizing his immune system. He doesn't do well on colostrum, so we will be adding vit A and E for now.

I love watching the students interact with him. I have one student who doesn't like to interact with the others much, and would prefer to sit and read a book, and it was neat to see that student's eyes light up with Max walked in the room. When some students leave, it's interesting to watch which ones have to make a point to come over and pet him before they go. I can really see how folks that work with therapy dogs get a lot of fulfillment from that.

Don't kick yourself.

My only suggestion is Reiki.

Thank you Jean, excellent suggestion smile

Patti, I would be very grateful if you would add Max to the list.

For the first time ever, he has been leaving the room to go lay in quiet in the other room by himself. NOT liking this, but respecting his needs for right now at least.

Oh...

I don't know what to say. I love that handsome guy.

Please try to enjoy every minute you have with him. I hope it's not hemangio. I lost Basu and Massie to that stupid cancer.

Anyway, sending you much love from the BowWowMeowMeow household.

I want Max to have a blood parasite for my birthday which is the 7th.

I had not seen the weekend news either and had seen this thread come back up to the top until today. Hoping this is not hemangio and that Max continues to improve daily. He is such a sweet guy. hugging

Lisa,

Well, OK, Max wanting some private time is testing your self-control. Hope (hard) for the best, gird yourself for the worst. Through everything you have handled with Indy and Mr. Gorgeous, you must have a spine of steel: strong and flexible.

We're sending constant, strong, sincere positive thoughts.

Please post whenever you feel like it.

MJ

I'm so sorry Max is not feeling well. Hopefully you can get through this together since you are both fighters.
