    all is going fantastic.... Stinky,as I refer to him, is a cuddle bug with lots of personality. His system is adjusting well and we are slowly moving him over to Fromm. Cheli and Banks are becoming very good playmates; she knows her limits with him and he does not back down from her. It is hysterical... we are trying to video/pictures, but because he is so dark - you can barely see him.

    Banks is doing well... she was at Dr. Rossi's on Monday - she has been in pain and we decided to change her meds. You may remember - she has disc issues and we have to manage her pain with different meds. so, Dr. Rossi adjusted her dosages.

    @2BullyMama..Did I ever tell you about Gabapentin? We used it in our Rottie for her disk and back problems. A teaching Vet hospital got her on it when she was in so very much pain. A fentanyl patch did nothing and we were contemplating back surgery, which it turned out, she was not a candidate for. Anyway, one dosw and it was a miracle. no pain..no real side effects. They use it in humans for seizures. Blocks nerve endings to brain..so pain is there, just can't feel it! Just put it in your bag of tricks. Most vets don't know about it..well at least a few years ago.

    Yes, that is one of her meds she get one pill a day with her dinner. Deramaxx with breakfast and Tramadol with both meals. Dr. Rossi told us that if Bnaks' issues were on any other breed, he would be having the 'talk' with us about quality of life, but as a Bulldog, she can handle much more than other breeds.

    awww! Ana got 2 a day..1 every 12 hours and tramadol and robaxin...Never any side effects, which after having her on Rimadyl, I so appreciated. Ana was on this for almost 3 years..and if not for bone cancer, I think in my heart..she would still be here. I hope Banks is as good on her meds.

    That cancer thing steals all the good ones! So sorry, Becky... it had to be very difficult to know how much pain she was in.
    So far, we are beginning to see a lot of improvement. She is not as 'grumpy', she is climbing stairs better and she is running with Cheli through the house; all these things she was doing before, but we see a difference in her movement and level of playing.

    You know the interesting thing was, after her cancer diagnosis, I was so determined to keep her pain free. We had decided when she showed any sign of discomfort it would be time. Problem was, the bone had a huge chance of breaking because the cancer eats from the inside out. So we were so careful and watched her like a newborn baby. When it came to pain control..guess what they use? Yup..Gabapentin and Tramadol. My vet said you know her better than anyone, give her what you think she needs. And just one morning she refused to get up. But no crying or any signs she was hurting. For that I am so very grateful. So, I can't say enough about Gabapentin especially and Tramadol.

    Sorry for such a downer in your thread! But I me some Ana!!

    NEVER apologize for remembering a loved one... regardless of the thread topic, if it fits it is worth talking about.
