40 Days and 40 Nights.

Lordy lordy Mya’s forty… well it’s been that many days and nights, { some very long }, since she had her surgery and we’ve only had one or two minor setbacks. We had our first vet visit after chemo for blood work etc. Results are all good, { pretty sure I just got a few pounds lighter }…  She is manoeuvring a lot better, but still gets in that zone seeing another dog or squirrel and charges along. Its all good until there is an abrupt change in direction, speed, or elevation, then we are at about 50% 🙂 It’s getting better by the day though. Really she had more troubles before the surgery with pain and limping. She wasn’t overly energetic at first but as soon as we finished the pain medication she started to do more. We have seen her run { at a good clip mind you } and she can beat me up the ramp at the back door. Some day soon I’ll get a video … She doesn’t like the beeps our phones and the camera make so its hard to catch those random moments because she will stop and look at you if she hears it.

Allison just told me about the Budwig Diet , for dogs with cancer. It’s cottage cheese and flax seed oil based, and she said there was a lot of good info. Al’ looked up “canine cancer diet” and then “dogs Budwig diet”. Seems there is a lot of precautions around these type of diets, like Omega 3 is good but Omega 6 and things like primrose oil are not.  Has any one here heard of this ?

All for now .

  1. Glad Mya is doing so well! And remember 40 days is not that long – she will continue to amaze you as she builds up her strength.

  2. Such a great update on sweet Mya! 🙂 it’s wonderful to hear how her sparkle is coming back and how she clearly feels better with that painful leg gone!!

    I can’t give you any first hand info in the Budwig diet other than to say I know some members here have used it. So not much help!

    Maybe going into the forums and starting a thread requesting feedback from anyone who has used that diet, or something similar.

    I know sometimes,, because some of these diets can be too complicated and time consuming, members pick the “most important” ingredients and combine it with high grade dog food (Honest Kitchen as an example).

    CONGRATULATIONS MYA! HAPPY ALMOST TWO MONTH AMPUVERSARY!! This calls for a scoop of ice cream and a slice of cake! You can always start your diet “tomorrow”!

    You’re really doing a great job! Keep these great updates coming! And it still gets better!

    Lots of hugs!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
