So things are looking up! Kepler had his oncology appt. yesterday, and under the prednisone his blood counts have returned to normal. His enzymes are still off, but they are improved. Other than side effects from pred, he is not showing any symptoms and he is still a happy dog. We are so proud of our brave poodle. Also he really enjoys going to the specialty vet owing to all the gorgeous dogs that come there for care. Yesterday he met a mixed breed that was the size and had the coloring of a wolf. He was a very sweet, timid fellow.

It is seeming like Kepler has months (maybe years?) rather than days left. We are slightly reducing the pred this month, with a goal of getting him down to 10mg/day in the next month or so.

He has been formally diagnosed with multiple myeloma, by the way.

Thank you all for your support. I'll keep you updated.

I am so glad - every good day is a gift after such a devastating diagnosis.

Hi poodle friends. Just checking in to say that Kepler is well so far. We are getting new blood test results in about 2 weeks. So far, 2.5 months after he showed signs of Multiple Myeloma, he is doing fine. The only difference we see in him is that he is super hungry all the time from the pred. He has gained weight, and now looks a bit more filled out. Otherwise, he is the same poodle we have always known. We realize we might not have him for the 15 years we hoped for, but at least he has made it past 6 and he is enjoying life.
