She went to the vet for the first time in her life in September 2021 for an ear hematoma. She had anethesia rom/keta 20-40#, meloxicam injection and vaccinated (rabies, dhpp & lepto). She was sent home with 3mg meloxicam. A year later we were back with this current adventure. She's had omeprazole 25mg and cerenia 60mg. It's just the Vetsulin and Trilostane now.

Almost forgot Fenbendazole preventative dewormer.

I did some reading seems meloxicam can induce pancreatitis. In older human females and a small percentage of dogs.

A 40 lb dog dose daily is .045 x 40 is 1.8 .... if the 3mg was too high then she could overdose.

Theres lots of info on metacam, meloxicam if you have time to check

I did look into 'if meloxicam could cause cushings' a little while back but it was not in the list of drugs known to cause cushings in canines.

My vet at the time said I was going to kill Jesse and it was cruel to test her as she gone in to live another 11 years .

Testing is so important early on but of course it's impossible to do this kind of testing at the vets office . As long as a pup is happy and healthy no reason to complain

She's been extremely energetic the last few days, wanting to play fetch and be outside so we must be doing something right. I don't believe we would have gotten here if I had just followed the vet's orders without thinking for myself. I wish we could reverse her cataracts but I know that's not possible.

In general dogs other senses are very useful and sometimes just as important if not more than sight . We as humans place more on perfection than dogs . They live within thier reality . My Jesse never cared she was epileptic or diabetic

I learned allot from Jesse living more in the moment and not worrying so much about what the future may hold .

I totally agree. And it makes me so happy to hear how well she’s doing. Just so happy!

I agree with you 100%! While I’ve always been told that dogs don’t live for the future or the past as they only see the “now”, I never fully understood it until Max. Diabetes has left him totally blind, but he really doesn’t seem to care. He’ll bump into things, shrug it off, seem to laugh at himself, but then keep going. It’s almost as if he doesn’t seem to miss his sight. In other words, he isn’t mourning his sight or the past, like a human would… He also isn’t much of a planner for the future either. While I’m now battling kidney failure, he has no problem showing his displeasure at me when I was forced to cut back his chicken to give his kidneys a break… He’d rather have more chicken now and to hell with his kidneys!!
