  3. Am I being unreasonable?

    If you do get a script from your vet make sure you ask for one or more repeats. We use Petceutics in Sydney . They are very good we usually receive the drugs the next day after ordering.
  4. Megaesophagus

    https://www.buildsomething.com/plans/P2BC3ED1049F866AD/Bailey-Chair-For-Dogs I hope this may help.
  5. I would hire a car to and pick the pup up from Toowoomba.
  6. Where to buy slippery elm

    I buy mine at Chemist Warehouse. Thompsons have slippery Elm tablets & they also stock slippery elm powder.
  7. My Giant can open baby gates with his paw. Luckily we don't have any cats but we wanted to keep the pup from going upstairs. Rolf however can open every door in the house including the baby gate.
  8. mast cell tumour -help needed

    https://perthvetspecialists.com.au/perth-veterinary-oncology/ My Giant Schnauzer had a melanoma removed when she was 12. Went to the Oncology specialist at SASH in Sydney where she was given a vaccine. Still with us 4 years down the track. The link I posted above refers to a similar type of treatment. Worth checking out anyway.
  9. mast cell tumour -help needed

    Has the vet x-rayed the dog's chest?
  10. What about a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.
  11. Osteosarcoma - what to do?

    I forgot to add to be very careful with your dog running around etc because if they fracture the bone where the tumour is it is very painful for the dog and will bring about the end sooner rather than later. Our dog had the tumour in his back leg . He was a very active dog and ran to the front door & fractured the bone. He was in a lot of pain after that and we had to put him to sleep as a result. Until then then he was doing well on the tramadol. We had a script from the vet & had it filled at our local chemist. It was a lot cheaper than the vet. I hope this helps you.
  12. Osteosarcoma - what to do?

    One of my Giants was diagnosed with osteosarcoma around 4 years ago. Our vet told us it was hopeless as the cancer would be everywhere. They didn't x-ray his lungs to see if it had spread. They told us if they amputated he would have to spend months in a cage/crate & he would be miserable and it would probably only extend his life by a few months. We treated him with tramadol and he had palliative care by way of radiation. He was diagnosed in very early November and had to be put to sleep late March. The radiation was expensive but it bought him some time. We were absolutely heart broken.
  13. Stage 3 Renal Failure

    So sorry to hear this Sheena. You have made the right decision not to have the surgery and you have done your best for her.
  14. Stage 3 Renal Failure

    Sheena . I spoke with my vet yesterday. She told me they had just done a dental on a 17yr old mini poodle with chronic renal failure. She said they hydrated the dog for a couple of hours prior to the surgery and everything went to plan. The dog was fine. She also confirmed the dog had to be hydrated because of the renal failure.
