The smallest things make my family so happy... like me eating all of my breakfast!
Mom talked to Dr. Pogrel yesterday afternoon and he suggested Meloxicam. Mom at first said no, as neither she nor my doctor want to put me through treatments that might not work for me. But... Dr. P. said, I think you should try it....
So mom picked up my prescription. Meloxicam is for pain/inflammation. She gave me my first dose and I didn't even run and hide as I usually do. Well, dinner time rolled around, and I'd become.... my old self!! I was acting happy, tail up, eyes bright, wanting dinner! I ate and ate and ate! Granted I still eat very slowly, but I didn't jump away from my food bowl as I'd been doing. I even had turkey treats without spitting them out.
Meloxicam won't take away my cancer, but I sure am feeling more comfortable after taking it, and if it gives me one more week, one more month, one more year together with my family, then we are determined to make this work!
My good friend BOB THE TOMATO has the same problem; please purr for him too. I am going to tell him about my treatment; I hope it brings him and his family some relief and peace as well.
This morning I even mewed, rolled over and did Air Paws for mom. Small miracles!
I love my vet. And I love all of you. Thank you for loving me and for keeping my beautiful candles lit!

Pawsome news - hope it continues to help you!
Thank you ALL! You are all such blessed friends! The POTP and the magic of love DO work. Never stop beliEVEIng!
Love love love always,
Whatever works for as long as possible, for as long as it works. I had three steroid shots all too close together but, as my pawrents and vet discussed, what could it have possibly hurt, I was not going to get better - I was not going to beat the cancer. But the steroids reduced the inflammation enough so I could eat just as your are doing. And I could breathe, and oh - that was wonderpurr. When the third shot helped me for not even one week, my pawrents knew it was time to say goodbye.
So let's all join paws and beliEVE that the medication is going to help you for a long, long time ... let's beliEVE that you will continue eating well and really enjoying your food ... that you will continue to walk tall with your tail held high and that every day will continue to be a beautiful gift that you and your family can enjoy together.
Always watching over you, always loving you.
Your special guardian angel,
