Here’s the latest with Bubba.
The three days he took Onsior, he did well. Then several days later he was back to his old fearful self.
Saturday morning he peed in the cat bed.
Saturday night he peed in Jen’s bed. Uh oh!
So Monday morning Jen called the vet and talked options.
Bubba started the Adequan shots Monday afternoon. He’ll get two a week for four weeks, then a maintenance shot once a month. At approximately $25 a shot, it’s doable. He’ll also take Onsior as needed, and no more frequently than every other day while the Adequan has time to work.
If the Adequan doesn’t help him, there’s not much else Jen can realistically do for him. So despite her misgivings about using this drug, she is, and she’s hoping it can offer him some healing that will bring about pain relief.
In other news, Bubba has decided I’m to be his new best friend. Whenever I’m in the room he comes running to me, and he likes to hang out beside me. I don’t encourage such behavior, but I’m not actively discouraging it either.
