  1. Thanks Optimus, please let me know how it goes for your little one
  2. Hi MCM, My greyhound Poppy (avatar) has Autoimmune Polyarthritis too. We went through her heavy cortisone treatment about 2.5 yrs ago. She was on a very heavy dose initally, and then it was slowly tapered off over 3 months until she came off it. Took us 3 months and numerous vets to get her a diagnosis. I had one vet diagnose a spinal infection and told me to put her to sleep! Poppy was unusual in that she didn't show any joint swelling until after she had been admitted to the vets because she could no longer stand because of the pain. She's had 2 small relapses since then, but a 2 week course of cortisone has fixed that no problems. Good luck with your boy, and if you want to pm me feel free ;)

    Scary isn't it G7! Kindra's a bit bigger than your little girl. Hope one day they can meet up (and we can get to meet you too) as their previous owner said they shared a cage. Kindra definitely remembered their brother Rocco Thanks CBL Don't you love greys and their sensitive tums. We've had the same problem with raw chicken lately, don't think the warm weather is helping. We've gone back to bones, kibble and extras. I'm lucky I've got a Stafford disposal with iron guts for the chicken.

    Very happy for Tiger Daisy! And Patch is looking very at home CBL! My little foster girl Kindra is still looking for her forever home - isn't she gorgeous? She's so happy and loving - a completely different dog to the quivering wreck she was months ago.
  8. Flash Has Bladder Cancer

    Oh I'm so sorry Jaana!!!! I really hope Flash will be ok.....our thoughts are with you. If we can do anything to help please let us know.
  9. Happened to me too - All my dogs are C5'd, sent the foster off to be vacc'd and the temp vet gave her the live vaccine. 3 of my 5 got it as well as the dog that had just been vacc'd.

    We are definitley going there - we took him a couple of weeks ago but there were trainers using it so we couldn't have a turn. With all the rain we didn't get there last week. We need a doggy playdate! Ooh yeah! Good idea I'm sure Patch would like to chase the girls around That might tire him out! He would love playing with the girls - he is a sensitive boy I'm away till early Dec but we should set something up for after that Mine will take advantage of him then Sounds good, you're on! On the night crying/toilet issue.... Mine don't whinge for nothing, so after a few minutes someone gets up to let them out. But that happens rarely. We're putting in a dog door (read: cutting a hole in the screen door :cool:) and fencing off a small part of the yard so they can go out but not get up to mischief. If it's a new dog it gets ignored if it whinges at night, but it doesn't happen often because they have doggy company. I'd rather there are a few messes in the morning on towels and they learn to hold it than get in a bad habit ;) PS we need more piccies of Patch!!!!

    You might like to take him to the straight track beside the farmer's field before Dapto for a run? 2 of my girls love a run there, though we don't go very often It's more fun with 2, otherwise OH gets very tired running up and down ;)

    Just thought I'd mention I am fluffy testing a 20 month old black female called Josie tomorrow. There's a post for her in Non-urgent. Link Thanks :rolleyes:
  14. Molly, Our Special Little Muppet.

    I've been lucky, the 2 I've had with serious "issues" I was able to return to the racing owner knowing they wouldn't be put down. Both were from the same litter coincidentally. You gave Molly a chance, and that's far more than most of them get. Hang in there, I'm sure carrying on with the grey work will help
