Yay for more excellent shrinkage! Even though it's a different issue after each treatment, it seems like he just needs that little bit of extra time between sessions. Good thoughts for Max that liver values are headed back to WNL soon.

Liver numbers are back WNL but white cells are up (which I knew would be because he's been having hella allergies/sneezies from the weather but I think he's almost over them) but apparently we're not aggressively fighting every last blood work number anymore, which is good. Next treatment is 11/20 so now we wait. I think I'll keep the liver support up because it helps though.

Thanks for the update - good to know he seems to be holding his own despite the allergies.

Thinking of you both today, Ashley, and hope you and Max both feel better by the holiday.

So there have been two treatments and a dental since I remembered to write things down. Max's tumor has shrunk minimally but still a tiny bit this time after 2 treatments of no shrinking. This chemo treatment hit him hard though, diarrhea right before I picked him up and in the house tonight. He didn't eat before the treatment so I'm sure that didn't help but he is eating dry freeze dried tonight and will get cerenia in the morning to help with the nausea. Also, we lost two teeth on Monday and they noted a mass where one of his teeth used to be but I didn't have it removed. I was waiting on the charts from the dentist so I didn't have them to give to the PI but I'll make sure they know for the next treatment. The trial vet also x-rayed his lungs and thought that there might be more leisons/tumors but it was hard to tell from the original x-rays in 2017. That could easily account for his decreased stamina on walks and trips, we'll just take it at his pace and get there eventually.

Thanks for the update, Ashley. I wish there was more drastic improvement (and less side effects), but I'm glad to know there has been shrinkage rather than growth.

I hope the boops are firming up and all the stuff stay smaller! I will say a prayer for his two little teeth. :smile:
