Will the food help it absorb more evenly? You could try it both ways and see how she reacts

Ok...just called my vet and asked...do I give with food or not?

He said...one hour before dinner or two hours after - exactly what the article says! Keep in mind...my bottle here says...give with food...YIKES! (2nd time the vet tech down at that surgeon's office made a mistake...last time I caught it right there...when she handed me Chey's typed history listing her with pronounced mets in her lungs) Glad I was prompted to look it up...kinda makes you want to look up everything doesn't it?

sigh...another week. i know how it is questioning everything and watching for mistakes. i'm always doing that with my docs and the dog docs. confidence in chey's doc/surgeon is SO important. i had to laugh when i read she dragged you outa there...they know, oh yeah, they know.

you have been SO INCREDIBLY GOOD for this girl. take care mary ann.

I know Katieliz...part of me just wants to wave a magic wand and have this over and done with and have her on the road to recovery. The waiting...knowing this is coming...that this is yet more time to worry, dwell...etc.....is incredibly stressful.

Hugs to you both on this emotional roller coaster. I guess I'm going to have to buy more bottles of her wine if I'm going to have a few more weeks of this! LOL

Just had to come back and say...

I am just so impressed that this surgeon didn't just concentrate on his little "niche" in all of this. He could have performed this surgery and have her survive without a hitch...and sent us on our way... His worry is...her health AFTERWARDS. Which I commend him for.

Poor Lori...and I made you drink all that wine last night...LOL.

I read an article last year about "emotional" crushes. It said that many of us develop emotional crushes on our doctors, vets, etc. - people who can heal us or our loved ones. Count me in for having a huge emotional crush on this vet. He is amazing!!

Jean, what blog are you talking about? Also, thanks for the information. I just looked up the drug. I find animal medicine very interesting, albeit sometimes confusing when comparing to humans.

Mary Ann, I can understand why the surgeon postponed. He sounds like he really cares about his patients, not to mention, he has a reputable reputation to uphold. And he probably lost money by canceling in the 11th hour, as well, but canceled anyway. He sounds like one of the good guys, for sure. You done good picking him out.

The story about Cheyenne running out the door cracked me up, too. My Matsi crawls on the bench behind my back when we enter the clinic, shaking and whining. Like Cheyenne, she can't get out the door fast enough!

Donna,
Mary Ann has a link under her signature, but here it is: http://southerncrossgsd.blogspot.com/

It lists the drugs and other procedures Chey would need for her surgery. Just scroll down a little on the page and then you can enlarge the checklist that is there.

I saw Jean say earlier that she was in meetings today, so I just went ahead and answered... smile

Your vet sounds like he knows his stuff! Thinking of you both and I know you will, but try not to stress (too much) hugging
