CHEMOTHERAPY

TULLEY’S FIRST TREATMENT

A week has passed since Tulley received his first chemo treatment and his response has been fair. The use of prednisolone has decreased the size of his lymph nodes. Overall he’s had a bit more kick in his step but that varies from day to day. He takes medication daily to ease his upset stomach and suppress vomiting, sadly its not 100% effective. His appetite is also remarkably decreased. He’s turned his nose up to eggs, liver, chicken and beef. Of all things he prefers peanut butter on sourdough bread. Currently I feel his condition is guarded.

My husband and I believe that the quality of his life is whats most important.

We’d like thank all of the staff at the Abington Veterinary Center for taking such good care of Tulley and all of you for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.
