Bellona is still doing good. Yesterday Dr. Carlson administered Bellona’s Carbo (Carboplatin) Chemo. Bellona hasn’t showed signs of any side effects from the Chemo and that’s great news to us.
In addition to the Chemo Big B is taking Doxycycline and Piroxicam. Let me say I was shocked when I picked up the prescription for the Piroxicam – it wasn’t cheap to say the least. It’s ok because it’s one more thing to help Bellona continue to fight cancer like the warrior she is.
But the bad ass in Bellona made her fight my husband and I while we attempted to take off her bandages from the Chemo and the blood draw. We tried treats and bribery but that didn’t work. Since we didn’t have safety scissors Bellona took a trip to the vet today and Dr. Carlson proved us wrong by quickly going, “Snip, Snip” and took the bandages right off. Boy did I feel like a tool when the vet can do it that quickly and we’re Bellona’s parents. Bellona is a pushover for Dr. Carlson.
Right now Bellona is napping and it must be good because she’s wagging her tail while she’s sleeping.
