More news about Little Toby...

He went to the Vet this afternoon for another draining. The last drain emptied out 1700CCs of fluids. Today's drain was only 700CCs! This is excellent news. They haven't tested the content yet but the amount is drastically down.
The Vet was at the point of giving up. I understood because the draining is no fun and he didn't seem to be turning around. These results make a big difference. It's nice to see the scientific proof of getting better along with his little smiling face.

Once again, thank everyone for your advise and encouragement. It made a big difference to us.

1. YES! This means he is healing

Next draining, if there even needs to be one will be even less. You are a very good parent to Toby, you did everything you could and you pulled him through.

6. Taking every bit of fat out of his diet, Prednisone, a diuretic and 1500 mgs of Rutin a day...

along with pro-biotics, vitamins and supplements is about all we could do for him. I finally took him off of the prescription dog food that I hate and put him on organic chicken breast, rice, peas and carrots. His treats are now tiny bits of baked sweet potatoes.
I really hope this is the last draining. He has been through it seven times...poor little buddy. Even one more but in weeks not days would be ok.

I think the Rutin is interesting.

7. He is a sweet little buddy

He has been through so much and yet he comes up shining, gotta love that. I take Rutin myself, in a bioflavin complex intended to guide the immune system and prevent allergy symptoms. It works.

8. It's also used to repair blood vessels. That's why Toby is taking so much.

It's often used for varicose veins or to repair vascular damage after some cancer surgery.

11. Sending good thoughts to Toby!

Get well soon, there's still lots for you to see and do--can't have you not feeling 100%!

Toby is lucky to have a family caring for him and loving him. I'm sure he gives back as much as he gets.

12. I'm very happy to hear this

Not only for your sakes, but following the pet group increases my own knowledge that might someday impact my own dog's life.
