Penny looks good and I bet she is happy taking her walks. It sounds like she is holding her own which is a good thing. Today Harley seems tired but it is dreary day here. Days like this scare me because I know with cancer sometimes the end will just sneak up on you. Some days I just sit with him all day. Tomorrow is the last day of his doxycycline so I'm taking him in to check platelets to see where they are at. I'm not so sure I want to know but . . .

I know what you mean with dreary days, they can bring you down. Here is a quote I like that is hanging up where I work. " Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that is why they call it 'The Present'". So enjoy that present with Harley to it's fullest! I will be thinking of you two tomorrow. I know that feeling of wanting but not wanting to know the results. Sending positive vibes. Penny says hi to Harley!

It looks like you all have a great place to take walks - green space, wide paths and more

Fingers crossed for fewer dreary days and many more moments of "golden" sunshine for all of us.

Penny had a second acupuncture appointment last Friday, and through advice from my holistic vet, we have started Penny on phosphatidylserine and r-lipoic acid to see if those can improve her mental status. Has anyone used or know of anyone who has used these before? They have no negative side effects, and will not interfere with the palladia. We have been able to get more food in her, and she has been going on two walks a day. We are taking her down for a check up this Friday. Please continue to send positive thoughts our way.

Lauren, Luna and Rory!

Sorry I have not heard of these before
However we have noted a improvement in Tia's mental status after using a magnetic collar and also after using Zeolite. They may not cause miracles (or maybe they will) but I understand the need to do anything we can that is non invasive that helps restore their sparkle especially at difficult times like these.

Penny you are still young you can do this. We are all praying for you!!

Sending more positive vibes and thoughts sweet Penny's way!
I have not heard of the above mentioned supplements or meds either.

I know that Denamarin, a liver enzyme supplement helps Thunder. He is more playful and happy. I think SAMe is suppose to support brain function. Denamarin is made up of SAMe and milk thistle.
