wow...what a difference in butch's tumour this morning
Carol · Apr. 25, 2009
one dose of prednisone and the mass is down about 30%. mast cell tumours are histamine triggered..that is why when you mess with them, they balloon up and grow really fast. the pred. as a steroid, calms down the histamine, makes the tumour chill out a bit and shrink....but i haven't ever seen such a drastic improvement with just one dose before.
so i am not so upset this morning...maybe we can help him feel good for a little while longer. way to go butch...good dog!
he and angel slept together on the same bed last night. and he really is a brave and stoic little thing, so typically boston. he met all the bedroom crew and just took it all in stride. i am thinking butch will wait til i am totally heads over heels in love before he decides it's time to die.
ellie was better yesterday too...i gave her a dose of quatrisol the night before and yesterday she spent most of the day trucking around in the mud around the pond until she decided in the late afternoon to join the rest of the upper barn crew.
yesterday was so busy...the photographers were here to shoot for the new BC pet rescue calender, a trainer was here to look around, and there was one other tour. we had the 2 vet housecalls and i told that bugger sidney that if he is still being a jerk today...he is the one i will pull out of that bunny pen for awhile so he better be good.
i got all of the feed and supplies, i got to recycle too and at the end of a very long day, tammy helped me buy and unload almost $700 of fertilizers and seed to repair the grazing grass around here...ouch!
but i still HAVE to pay some bills, do my laundry and answer the latest emails!!!!
