prayers for all the animals and there owners here . i also need some for my big akita dog, about 11-12 years old had a toe amputated 2 weeks ago was infected for the second time and had to come off. she wasnt doing real bad until the bandage had to be taken off. she became un-stable on her feet .... she has arthritis in her hind quarters pretty badly, non related to the surgery . she had taken a fairly mild steroid but doc has put her on derramax, a potent anti-imflamatory drug. she is also on a daily vitamin called pet tabs . she can raise herself from a lying position most of the time and walks pretty good but very slow . her appetite is good and she wants to play once in a while but lays and chews on her toys without wanting to chase them. doc said also to feed her liver a couple of times a week to build up her strength . got some but havent cooked her any yet , will do so tonite . probably make me sick smelling it ! has any one had the same experience with their dogs ? any advice or tips to help her ? i realize that she is in the last stages of her life . if she doesnt go down hill from her i will give her the meds and see what happens. i will , by docs instructions , give her one about every other day or maybe about 3 per week of the derramax thanks and god bless wally Wanna kill these ads?
