Oz the Rottweiler Update Feb 20 2012

OZ UPDATE - So Oz's EKG, Blood work, and Kidneys look GREAT!!! His RBC's were at 44! This made him a candidate for adriamycin/doxorubicin that we will be doing every three weeks for up to 5 treatments, depending on how he handles it... i will not keep him on it if he has side effects affecting his quality of life.. I am stopping the metronomic therapy for now to make sure he handles the adriamycin well.. I don't want to overdo anything and overwhelm his system.. Also all his antioxidents will be held off one week prior and after his treatment. So for the one week in between he will get all of those supplements.. I have been researching like crazy and preparing myself for this appt.. I also read several studies that show antioxidents can interfere with the efficiency of adriamycin/doxorubicin and the oncologist agreed.. My husband said i sounded like an expert ;) Oz will still get a heaping amounts of greens, fish, poultry, and meat (minus beef)... probiotics and unlimited amounts of bone broth.. Oz looks really good and this will hopefully extend his life far past the 3 months they gave him... Much love and forever thankful Oz and U

PS While Oz was in back getting his tests and treatment.. my husband and I went to grab a coffee and low and behold a black lab on the loose and a lady trying to catch him! Oh boy.... so i of course had my husband make a U turn and out I was to "save the day" ;)... This lab was not this woman's dog she was also trying help him.. It took me a 1/2 hour and about a mile of running in high heels i might add to get that lil sh*& ;) but i got him!! and when i did, he gave me a bunch of kisses ahahah... Thankfully "boomer" wearing a collar and tags! We called several numbers on the tags and reached his Grandma she quickly came to pick him up (his dad was out of town).. She was very thankful and also very lucky to have "Boomer" safe and sound.... It made my day to know i was able to help save a life :))
