I know someone on the other forum (could be on this one to) that put her older Shepherd down because she couldnt or didnt want to remember to give her the pills that could fix the incontinence problem. You want someone to call cruel and and inhumane...go to that person

hmmm...I couldn't find that post but would be interested in seeing it. My point is NOT what others do or the fact that you took him to the vet. btw...while there did you ask about his blue gums?

My point is that every time someone says something you don't like, you pull out the euth. card or scream "Maybe I will just not bother to treat it.". Both are guilt trips designed to make someone else feel bad as if they were the cause of your dog not getting medical care or being killed. Knock it off.

Nobody on this board is responsible for your dog, or his medical care. People can answer questions with only the knowledge they have. To do any more would be negligent on their part. They should not have to feel as if they are held hostage because you scream these things if you don't get your way. You would get a much better reception, and much more help, if people didn't feel they were held liable for a bad decision on your part regardless of the reason for your decision.

No I never mentioned the pale gums. But I will mention them when I go back for his recheck. He hasnt had a pale episode in about a month. It stopped after I discontinued the one set of eye drops.

I am still planning to get blood work done on him soon tho. I did mention his hips/knees to her while I was there (tho I almost forgot) and she thinks he has mild hip issues and didnt feel any luxation in his knees but I still plan to get him x rayed

The person with the dog she killed because she couldnt remember her pills, was on another forum. I just happened to notice this user was also a member on the other forum (not sure about this one). I can try to find that "goodbye" post on the other forum for you

My first response is basically calling M16 on the BS in her original post on this thread. Previously whined and whined and whined about not spending money to take him to the vet about his eyes - drug this one out for an eternity & now acts as though the vet is at fault for not dropping everything to call her back & suddenly insists that her dog will not be without meds....although she of course will not start with what is recommended.

That is inconsistent at best. I'm tired of tolerating M16s crappy behavior which includes inconsistent posts and demands for attention.

BTW my sex is irrelevant to what I post.

If your so every tired of it rather then whine about it why not just ignore me. I dont really care what you think. I said he couldnt see a vet until it was getting worse. It got worse and he went to the vet. The ONLY reason the vet wanted to start him on Optimmune is because it would make the most money for them. When i said I wanted to order online they suddenly brought other options on the table like the pred drops. I would think trying something cheaper is better then not treating it at all. If there are meds that are cheap he will get them. If the vet wouldnt let me, then he would go without.

Its pretty simple Middle, perhaps you should grasp onto it. The fact that this insulting and bashing is permitted on this forum when its clearly in the rules is sickening. I dont even know why I bother replying to peoples inmaturity. All your doing is stirring up crap.

Actually, your vet recommended Optimune because that's the standard of care. And ointment is better for long term management.

No one answered some of your questions for a variety of reasons. One being that they have been asked and answered a multitude of times, on both forums in your threads. There are also many other threads on these topics where you can find the answers.


Many of us saw the same inconsistencies as Middle, it's just that she is more likely to say something about that. So, I can't see fault with that.

This forum, and the people on it, are not a substitute for havine a working relationship with your vet.

If you recommend Optimmune Lisa why did you tell me in the one thread that all he should need is Pred drops? I am sure I could dig that thread and post up if need be

At this time I cannot afford Optimmune unless I can find it for around $20-$30 a bottle/tube that ships to Canada. I would of thought that using pred drops would be better then not treating it. If thats not true do tell me that

I gave you a cheaper option to try. Doesn't mean it will work. Again, you need to have a working relationship with your vet, read and learn from the other threads on this same topic.


Look around Mal16, this forum isn't all about you. Dogs have passed on, dogs are gravely ill, dogs are in the ER. People just don't want to play 20 questions on a topic that has been hashed over and should be done with, at least until you follow your vet's instructions and see what happens.

Thats the problem Lisa, I cannot afford to pay $52 twice a month for a bottle of Optimmune. Thats my vets instruction. If the pred doesnt work then I have no idea what I will do. But you told me the pred should work just fine in another thread I believe on the other forum. My vet said there was other options but Optimmune she thought was the best (prolly because it would profit her more) so unless someone has sources for cheaper Optimmune...
