Ethel the Tripawd Bulldog!

Double Nadir

Friday, Ethel became very ill, and I took her the vet the next morning. She was there until this morning when we went to see her oncologist. Turns out she’s one of the few dogs that suffers side effects, one of which was the dreaded double nadir. Her CBC was great 7 days after her first treatment, but plummeted on Friday leading to her hospital stay. Oncologist saw her today and said her CBC should be fine by Thur. He’s going to reduce her dosage and probably prescribe antibiotics to stave off any possible infections. I’m glad she’s home, eating, and feeling much better.

    Glad she’s feeling better… Sessy had low WBC at the 21 day mark so her chemo was changed to every 4 weeks. Her 6th chemo and last was a month ago and she’s doing fine so far.

      Yeah, she’s having round two delayed until next week. Doc also said he’s going to reduce the dosage and prolly give antibiotics to mitigate any adverse reactions to her treatments.

    We’re so glad she’s feeling better! Chemo is rough, but it sounds like you’re all figuring how to make it work for Ethel!

    Whew! So glad that she’s home. I’ve never heard that term before but I know this has happened to quite a few members here. What a relief your vet caught it and is making revisions so she’s more comfortable during and after future treatments. Yay! Here’s to a healing week ahead.
