remember a while back i told you all about my sheltie, teddy whos bladder was full of a MASS, well our vet put him on two pills, we took him for another ultrasound again last friday,the mass is now less than an inch in size may still get smaller or go away, no more infections or having to go pee five times all the time, also this one pill is a powerful anti inflamatory so his arthrits doesn,t bother him anymore, i can,t keep up with him, he sure is a happy healthy pup now, thank you for your prayers im certain that is what helped as we changed direction on a number of things , seen the right vet, the drug store tried to give us a different pill she said was the same it wasn,t it, all through it all it seemed we were guided in the right direction, i pray that it will be completetly removed, but as of now he is doin great. for all you dog owners out there this maybe helpful if your ever in need of this kind of treatment , i hope you all never need it but here are the names of the pills anyway.misoprostol(generic name is cytotec) 200mcg he gets half of this one in the moring and night, it helps protect his stomach from the other one that is called piroxicam 10mg this is a powder in a capsul that is sprinkled on his wet dog food in the moring, it is a powerful anti-inflamorty that she says has been proven to shrink tumors, when i looked at his first ultrasound and compared it to the last one, i was so happy and relived, thanks to you all for the prayers and support, and kel give TIP a big ole hug for me, oh and a treat lol.thanks all

Wow...I am so relieved. What good news. Got your buddy back, and there ain't anything better than that. You spoil him rotten now, ya hear? ;) I know you will. I will keep those pills in mind. Sounds like wonder drugs. I am so glad they worked. I have been thinking and thinking about you and that dog a lot lately. I knew you would tell me when there was anything to tell. You be sure and give him a big ole hug for me too! Give him a pig ear just from me, k? Keep in touch, I swear sometimes the feeling is stronger than other times, but I sure wish we could get together sometime, one day. It would be a hoot. :) Take care

Toolman glad to here that! Just be sure not to let him run around to much feeling no pain because he can damage joints not feeling them hurt causing him to move slower due to pain. It is nice to see your dog move again when befor they were hurting! Mark H.

Great news, toolman. Nothing worse than a sick dog. I lost two to cancer a couple years ago and it still brings tears to my eyes when the memories come up. I have only one now and he is my best buddy.

i know what you mean i lost three since i been out here and have my two boys left now after that i don,t know if i could deal with losing anymore they are so much a part of our lives,they are the love of my an my wifes lives as we have no kids these guys are ours.

I'm the same. No kids here, and the boys were/are my kids now. Since being disabled and now retirement age, I'm home almost 24/7 and that makes us even closer. When we lost the boys I thought I didn't ever want to go through that again, so no more dogs, but when I had the chance to get this guy I couldn't resist him. I dread the thought of ever losing him too.
