Gosh Cora, I guess there is another thread about your little man, but what do you mean about his groomer claws bleeding?
Poor little guy, just sit him down and tell him to listen hear.
Stop doing this or you will live the rest of your lift in a collar. frown poor little guy, to bad animals don't understand what they are doing only hurts themselves.
If I can help just let me know.


As time goes by and my loves pass. I will forever be greatfull for the time we had together. I will see you soon my loves.

OK so 2 weeks after restarting the prozac things seem to be a little better. I can leave the collar off for an hour or 2 with eyes on my prize wink He also remains on the Robaxin. He is up to 132 grams. You can see an updated photo of him that I entered in photo of the week! Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers of my Spencer!

Cora, I'm really out of the loop on this stuff...can you send me a summary email of his issues at shadowdancersxfile9@yahoo.com? I may have a meds suggestion for you you may not have tried. And you know my prayers are always with your little ones!

Are you all still hoping and praying??? Spencer has his "good" and "bad" weeks, days ................this past week has been especially rough, just like he was when I sent him to Marys the last time. He had a vet visit today, waste of my time..............except I did get my first wellness exam form filled out by the vet (thanks Val I will send you a copy) except for the fecal part.........couldnt get a poo sample, any other time hed be pooing everywhere....LOL I will stop by Thursday and see if I can get that part done!!! So I am to continue symptom management since he had a reaction to the prozac and neurontin.................I still say its something inside upper 6 oclock area of cloaca aggrevating him cause thats what he goes for with his sharp teeth.............trying to get inside that area. The magnet stuck to his staple on his collar (quit laughing) so we dont use it.............powerful magnets......LOL Spencers symptom management includes Robaxin twice a day, Torb as needed, has been once a day for past week, Metacam for 5 days when swelling present(on that right now), Silvadene to affected area of cloaca(I have to pull it apart a little). His cloacal opening has healed weird, it is a slit...................course we also use oragel at times. Spencer is not always in misery, he sleeps on me , plays some, eats, but I know how gliders hide things. Please keep praying for Spencer!

I know y'all are trying but the prayers are not working. He now lives in my room because he makes the SM short noise on and off all night. I believe it is stressing the glider room and may have caused a couple of my moms to pull. His collar is well padded with moleskin so he just brushes it against his cloaca at 6 oclock on and off all night. I bet I got up 10+ times last night and put orajel on his bottom. He does not do this in the daytime when he is sleeping. His appetite is decreasing, I cant keep him clean anymore. He just isnt looking good folks. Does he have a quality of life? Sometimes, not near like he did before this all started back up again and certainly not like he did even 2 months ago.. I have been giving him Metcam, Torb, and Robaxin to try to keep him comfortable. Hubby says I an being cruel and I need to lay him to rest. Any ideas are welcome and appreciated. Thank You All

Oh Cora, I'm so sorry sweety. I know you have given Spencer every ounce of love and determination you have in that great big heart of yours. And HE knows it too!

You know I don't have any experience at all with serious illenss in gliders. In animals at all in fact. So I won't try to advise you on whether or not to let him go. Spenny has been a part of you for so long, and only you will know when it is time. My heart is breaking for you right now.

Cora,

Your heart knows the answer regarding your beloved Spencer quality of life.

Your love for him will help you make the right decision, which has been laying heavily on your mind.

Sending prayers your way.

That decision is one of the hardest to make. Unfortunately, only you can make it. Does he have a quality of life? Does he have enjoyment and happiness. Is he miserable, irritated and in pain most of the time?

Like Kimberley said, listen to your heart.

My prayers go to you. hug2

Ty karen.....however he sleeps on me all day with no issues................its night time when he does this,( I call it his nightterrors) all night on and off. So I dont need any one to watch him I need someone to make him better so we can go back to where we were before this last bout of SM last summer. At least we had a good 6 or 7 months in between the first and this episode. I got a few last ditch efforts up my sleeve and an angel sitting on my shoulder to help guide and protect me. Spencer and I will know what to do when the time comes....................I want that to be years from now...................
