Andy

Love what you wrote here:

Andy's limping is better today than it was yesterday when he could barely walk. He sure gets up fast when he hears something going on in the kitchen. We'll give it the rest of the weekend to mend. The weather is absolutely beautiful and I hate to miss taking him places, but he'll need at least the weekend to get back to 100%.

Tell those darn squirrels to not leave their acorn shells around so dogs can get hurt!
Hope Andy heals quickly. Resting the weekend sounds wise!!
Maybe you two can catch up on movies!

Reading good reports about Andy is such a happy way to start my weekend!

When we were fighting Charlie's arthritis along with his seizures, our vet prescribed Deramaxx. It seemed to do a better job on pain than the other meds we tried. Just another option to keep in mind.

I hope that you and your boy have splendid weather, even if all you do is sit outside and catch a few rays.

Hugs, prayers, and belly rubs (for Andy, not for you ),
Lucy

Thanks for the info about the Hepato Support, Danny.
I will ask my vet about it and see if he might be able to order it for me. My Thunder has a slightly elevated ALT, this might just be something for him.
Since I use the Denamarin chewables, right now I am out of luck, seems to be on backorder everywhere. I am "suppose" to get a shipment this week. I hope so.
Thanks again!

Thanks for the update. Hope that Andy's limp starts to improve soon, I'm sure after a few days rest he'll soon be back to normal

Thanks for the tips and well wishes

Dr. Vancil didn't prescribe an anti-inflammatory. I'll have to call Monday and check on that. Andy's limited on what kind of anti-inflammatory he can take because of the Prednisone he'll be taking the rest of his life. His first onco, Dr. Kim Williams, prescribed Rimadyl, which would have killed him within hours due to the high dose of Prednisone he was taking. Thanks to seeing Andy's regular vet that day we avoided catastrophe (we fired her for her uncaring attitude).

I don't know how those squirrels get the walnut shells open. They're so hard I'd have to use a hammer to get them open. I just used a shop vac to get them up the best I can after raking up what became a 3' tall pile of leaves in that area of the back yard. And the trees still have half of their leaves.

Andy's getting 2 Tramadol every 8 hours through the weekend. He isn't laid out like I'd suspect he might be with all that pain reliever in him and follows me everywhere I go. I'm trying not to move around very much so he'll stay quiet. It's gonna be a quiet weekend. Not such a bad thing at all.

Oh, those walnut shells, we are having the same problem.
I am glad that Andy is feeling better.

Wow, I am shaking my head about that Vet prescribing Rimadyl when Andy is on Prednisone. I am so glad you guys caught that before it was too late.

Wishing you and Andy a nice, relaxing weekend and a speedy recovery for Andy's paw.
