Update on Sampson

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

All-Sampson has been walking much better. We are no longer concerned that he has cancer in his other leg. He is also getting up and down the stairs in our house all by himself.  We put on  his ruff-wear harness for support if needed.   His  chemo is going well.  His appetite is good (not great).   He seems to eat more frequent, smaller meals.   Rotisserie chicken works (rottie-chicken as we call it in our house).  Sammy  does need to take metronidazole for his BMs.   He doesn’t have diarrhea, but after breakfast during his nap a little poop escapes.   I am starting to enjoy the smell of rottie gas in our house. His brother Owen has Addison’s disease and quite a bit of GI distress too.  That said, the boys are having a good time and taking care of one another.
