Default Pip collie lab x cushings arthritis

Hi everyone

I just giving you and update regarding my golden baby boy.
Well things got very bad from last thursday Pip couldn't walk or even get up .we had to help up to go in to the garden and support him while he went to the toilet by Easter i was in tears as things just wasn't improving (my mum uses a deep freeze spray for her back and joints so i asked my if i could just try on Pip)and it worked he was able to stand up unaided by 11am easter day he was playing and running about so i contiuned to use on him and we haven't look back except today as he had a bath i didnt use today and i frontlined him.
Went to the vets today told her how pip was and what i used she logged of the practice page and went onto google and typed in what i was using she hasn't got a problem with me using that at all afterlooking what was in it she just double checked which i was using as there are some with anti inflammotorys but this on hasn't so shes fine if it works not a problem.
Pip is still food food food and drinking alot she said after his las results she couldn't put his vetoryl up as he was his levels where 11 and they should range is between 30 and 50 ,
We are retesting him again on the 8th may where its likely she will put his vetoryl back up to 2 daily (as pips levels are either to HIGH or to LOW)We have only had 1 blood test where he has been perfect with his readings.
I asked if he could be diabetic she said NO he was tested in march an they where fine as checks pip regulary for diabetes with being a cushing dog .his liver is fine .although she did say his cholesterol was up (didn't really understand and she didn't say anything else)
Today she checked his claws as some of them are starting to fall out not break or snap they come whole , so we have to keep a watchful eye
As i email you my golden most handsome boy is asleep with his head on his mums lap
(i know to some people he not handsome just a fat dog but to me and the people that really know pip he's handsome)
We had alot of people ask us Pip must of won best in show alot and has noe retired my mum said NO his just a normal rescue dog. i told he's not just a rescue hes our boy and you should be very very proud when people say that to as they are making a complement about my boy and you just say his a rescue,
Pip has lost weight he went upto 38 kilos and his now going not by much but he's 35.5 kilos

thats my news on my golden boy
hope you all had a nice easter
Julie Pip

Hi Julie!

As you know, I am THRILLED that you and Pip are finally here with us once again!

That was a good thought you had to try the freeze spray on Pip! I doubt that would have ever occurred to me. My sister-in-law uses it and simply swears by it so I am glad to know Pip is getting some relief from it, too. Amazing how quick it worked!

2 1/2 kilos may not be a whole lot, but it sounds like you have found the key to helping him lose weight after all you have tried, and every little bit helps. If I could drop a ton or two, my knees would be much happier! I bet Pip can tell the difference already! Even a few ounces can mean alot to pups sometimes!

In looking for you, folks all over England have now heard the names, Julie and Pip, so you tell your mom and anyone who asks, that we think Pip is more than "best in show"....he and his mom are world champions!!!

Hugs and welcome HOME,
Leslie and the girls

Oh Julie, I'm so glad to see you, too!!!!!!!

I'm so happy that Alison got your address, and Leslie is not kidding -- she has been doing everything in her power and contacting everyone she could think of to find you and Pip... You are both well-loved here and you were sorely missed.

Speaking of "sore," I'm also relieved to hear that Pip seems to be feeling better now that you are using the freeze spray. I don't know what that is, so I will have to look into it myself, since my elbow is acting up after pruning my hedge!

Thanks, AS ALWAYS, for this update.
It is so good to have you and your sweet, handsome boy back with us again.

Julie,

I'm so happy you found your way here.

That is wonderful that the spray is working on Pip. I am battling arthritis with my boy McGill so I'd like to know the name of what you are using.

Again, I am so happy handsome Pip is doing well.

Carol, Winnie (always), McGill & Atty

Hi Julie,

I, like those who have posted before me, am so happy you and your handsome boy Pip are with us again!

I've never heard of the freeze spray either but would certainly like to know what it is so I could learn more about it. I am glad it is giving relief to Pip. Is he back to chasing after the Kitty cats again??

Thanks for your update. Always interested in seeing how you and your boy are doing.

Julie,

I am glad Pip is feeling so much better and wanted to wish you all the best with your consultation at the deaf clinic and your appointment at the hospital regarding possible surgery for your deafness. This is exciting news.

Sending lots of scritchies for your boy, Pip and positive thoughts for you.

Hi Julie,

I can just see Pip snatching that brush and taking off with you hot on his tail! That is a most pleasant, satisfying image! And, like Scott, I hope he keeps you running and jumping!

The surgery possibility sounds wonderful and I'm sure it is exciting for you! Please do keep us informed on how it goes for you. I will be praying for the best outcome possible!!! And lighting a candle or two as well.

Hugs,
Leslie and the girls
