Gee....injectables should be easier to get. I was getting injectable pain meds and antibotics for my horse 18 yrs ago! My vet showed me how to do it safely and gave me what I needed. But he was the provincial government vet at the time. I think here, its up to the vets discretion. They have to worry about abuse too but it could be a control issue. For ex: in reefkeeping (marine corals and fish) our corals can be attacked by "red bugs" we call them. Its similar to fleas on cats and dogs but it kills the coral. Mind you these corals are VERY expensive. We have a very hard time getting the intercepter medication from the vets. They dont know anything about reefkeeping and since its not for a dog..... Some had to go to a friend with a dog and mislead the vet. Sad. Its slowly changing with persistance and education.
Maybe if you were persistant with the vet and show him you can do it, he will give you injectables? Hope your girl feels better soon. :(

Hi All Concerned Friends,
Annabelle is on her fifty mile trip back to the vet. We had a bad night. She would not drink or eat and of more concern we could not get her meds into her. I called our Vet this morning and as I anticipated, he said to bring her back because with a chronic condition like Addisons, as well as two surgical procedures, meds are essential. For the next several days she will be cared for at the clinic. I wish they had anticipated the potential for this so soon after surgery. I am sure her tongue is very painful from the biopsy and she has a seven inch incision on her belly. She deserves the TLC. The news on the biopsy comes on Wednesday. Say a little prayer for us.
A HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE and hugs and kisses to your beloved Poodles and other pets.

So good of you to let us know! Right you are, Annabelle deserves the most attentive medical care, pain relief and comfort she can get. I hope her stay at the vet's office won't be too long, and that Wednesday brings encouraging news. No matter where she's being cared for, she and you and on lots of minds. Wish you and yours the best in the New Year.

Well,

I can honestly say that 2012 has been one of the worst years imaginable. I've never seen so much go so wrong so fast at so high a frequency and it's really ending with a horrible bang.

So our vet actually got the results of Annabelle's biopsy back today. Our worst fear has indeed been realized. She has squamous cell carcinoma. Unfortunately, this girl has been through so much and has never come out of it well that I don't think we can bear the thought of her having to go through radiation therapy and our vet actually agreed as it will probably do more harm than good and for a very small amount of extra time. So, it's inevitable that we're going to lose her. My heart is breaking.

The vet is going to keep our girl up there for another couple days to make sure she's eating and drinking on her own because it's been very hard for her since the surgery. When we bring her home, we're just going to love her as much as we can for as much time as we have with her until such time as she starts to suffer and we will then take her back up to say goodbye. The last thing we want to do is see this poor girl suffer.

As if this news today wasn't enough, our water heater suddenly broke and started leaking too, so now we have absolutely no hot water, and on New Years Eve. Wow, Murphy's law is really present today. The world may not have ended on Dec 21st, but boy it's sure felt like the sky is falling this week.

If only I could give Annabelle a pill to take away all her sickness and make her 8 weeks old again, I would do it in a second...

TheBigRoo: I am so terribly sorry for the devastating news. It is mind-bending, heart-sinking sad. Your plan to get Annabelle stable with the pain meds and keep her Addisons under control is sound. And your dedication to making certain she lives as best she can without undue suffering is the most noble, and the kindest. You may not have a magic pill or a magic wand, but you have the immense power of love to give Annabelle for the rest of her days with you. I only wish the illness would vanish and the days go on forever!

My heart goes out to you and your dear girl. I hope you can have her home with you before long. I know time with her is so precious now. It sounds as if it's always been, but now, now it's especially precious. You and Annabelle are in my thoughts.

(p.s. I think your hot water heater is crying tears of its own, not just leaking.)
