hugging It is very, very difficult to have any kind of perspective, much less equanimity, at this point, even without other stressors in your life.
Just keep looking into her eyes and you will know when it's time. Cleo was a fighter too, as you know, and then finally it was clear. Sending all good thoughts and strength and peace of mind your way. You have never let this dog down and she knows that. She has enjoyed the most amazing life with you and your family. You are all very lucky people. hugging

hugging I can't add much to what Ruth said so perfectly.

Take care of yourself and take a little break now and then. Caregivers need R&R.

Cheyenne has perfect confidence in you, you've earned it. Your judgment has proven to be right for her since she first came to you (for hospice, wasn't it?). Your judgment won't fail her now.

The antibiotic might be Zeniquin? It's a more powerful Cipro.

I hope the new ABX helps. I am worried that she might have the Big C some place in her body that is causing the immune system to be so weak. I saw that with Lakota, as long as he was on ABX the skin issue was under control. as soon as he would go off it was back in a matter of days. I know this isn't any thing you want to hear, so hoping the the new ABX helps with the skin infection, so she has more energy to move around.

UGH...explosive diarrhea all day today...don't ask...

The antibiotic is Azithromycin.

I almost called the vet today to tell him that there is NO WAY I can give this antibiotic anymore since today was!

BUT...then I realized I put a powder in her food last night to entice her to eat (nature's variety raw supplement I found on my shelf). It was in a mindless moment of desperation to get her to eat her dinner last night...not even thinking how it might affect her. See...that's how delirious I am! So..that could very well be the culprit! She's on chicken and rice and I will try the antibiotic a little longer.

I know Val...a long time ago that was brought up as a possibility. frown I guess...I just don't even want to know. I hope she gets some relief...but after all these months of trying...I'm not very hopeful. We'll see what this new antibiotic brings.

myamom— hugs. How is Cheyenne doing today with the diarrhea and how is she feeling? INCASE no one has told you lately, it’s an amazing how much you are doing for her and with her, true love and devotion. I’m offering my heartfelt prayers for continued strength and for her to get well, hugs.

OK, so I did check and one of the symptoms of Azithromycin can be diarrhea.

Having two pups that react to antibiotics negatively, I can feel for you both because it is hard, really hard.

We’ve used NV before and haven’t had a problem, however… that’s just us and I don’t think it was wrong to give it, here is the link to their raw supplement maybe it might show a trigger?? NV Boost

Two things recommended here, and have worked for us: The Honest Kitchen, Perfect Form to help make the stool firm. Slippery Elm Bark (Nature’s Way) helps with nausea and vomiting (bile). I just don't know if either can be used for Cheyenne.

Thank you!!! It was so stupid to start two new things in one day...just wasn't thinking! Now I'm not sure which affected her! I'm going to try to stay on the antibiotic and take measures to counter diarrhea.

Today hasn't started well...just couldn't get her up..and moving her caused labored breathing. I have her laying out on the deck right now to get fresh air. I just don't know...

Last night was the first time I saw her get up on her own..and I was elated...and now today...just worse than ever.

Thank you for the hugs...really need them!
