That's very encouraging. I wonder how much of a chance there I that that is not a MCT. I understanding not wanting to aspirate, but not knowing will be really hard too!

It could be anything. Scott looked at it last night and said it came on fast so it's not something we missed. That worries me.

You could try a green tea compress, and see if that has any effect? Some with MCTs have reported positive results from that...

Basal cell tumor - he's not concerned. She's not a candidate for surgery but felt if it gets "black" or very large they may be able to remove it using a local and a laser.

BUN jumped to over 50. Recheck in 3 months and will look at diet change then if it's still high or climbing.

Changing BUN can also be heart...

VERY glad to hear the vet is not very concerned - I don't know anything about those. It's good to have an answer.

frown Her balance is off again, her head is tilting. She really doesn't move around much and I'm not convinced she is comfortable. She whines at night, only at night, and most often if Scott is not on the couch with her. I don't know if it's cognitive or discomfort. I suspect cognitive. At this point, I'm not sure what else to do for her. Painkillers may be an option but will kill her kidneys quicker and I'm not sure she is in pain. If she is, then I would give them to her to maintain quality over quantity.

Oh boy, things just get tough, and sometimes there are no good choices hugging

If there is pain, DLPA releases the body's own endorphins, don't know if it would be helpful?

I know you tried the cholodin and it didn't help, right? I think when I was looking up Sundowner's when one of my folks was in the hospital and I came up with using Hypericum on them, but there are a lot of homeopathics out there for anxiety disorders, and I'm just not familiar enough with them.

It's definitely going with cognitive. She has spent the last hour whining. First while laying in the couch and then while standing in the middle of the room. Scott was downstairs on the phone with his brother. I couldn't take it anymore and told him to come upstairs. Not a peep! It's all about him at night.
