Thanks for the update!  Love the pics -- Jennie looks like she's smiling at you, as if she's thinking "If I smile, maybe she'll give me more."  Queen Eva, on the other hand, looks like she's sending you subliminal messages . . . "You WILL give me more . . . You WILL give me more . . . "

Oh no MC. That's not the desired effect for Jennie.  :'(

How's the gorgeous girl doing today?

Yeah, it wasn't nice.   It's not going to work for me or Jennie.  I had my doubts all along as you know. Thankfully I can return it for a refund.

Jennie is doing very well thank you! As long as I keep her meds on time she is comfortable and happy and Herself. She is taking the Cerenia nightly, the gabapentin every 8 hours, and so far she is only needing the buprenorphine 24 hours and 38 hours after the piroxicam. The 2nd dose is new, she was only getting it the 24 hours after.  But now I notice by mid afternoon on the second day (just before the piroxicam is due again) she needs a little help.  So I've gone to the evening and the next morning now.

For instance she gets the piroxicam at 5:15 pm (every 48 hours).  The next night she gets the bupe at 5:15 pm instead and then again the next morning around 7:30, before I leave for work.  A little later if it's the weekend.

Her appetite is terrific but she and Queen Eva had some of my baked boneless pork loin chops the other night, well it was the fat trimmings, which they both went crazy over, and Queen Eva handled it okay, but it has made for some really smelly moments for Jennie.  It gave her some gas too, so she won't be getting any more diet variations.

I just ordered her buprenorphine from Road Runner pharmacy though so that is good news. The original place the vet tech tried to hook me up with never followed up.  then when I tried to get on their website my firewall blocked it saying the site wasn't secure.  As I tried to find out more information I came across some very scary reviews about the place messing up dosages and things like that.  So i went with my gut and contacted the tech again and told her I didn't want to use them and could I use Road Runner.

Apparently she had sent me to the first one because the last time they checked Road Runner didn't have the buprenorphine. (there was a shortage a couple years ago I remember) Lucky for me and Jennie, they have it now. A three month supply for $75.00 shipped straight to my post office. (I have to sign for it because it is a controlled substance). Whew.

PS Here they were hoping for more pork trimmings as I sat and enjoyed my supper.  funny2

The good news is:  I found the course material.  The bad news is:  there wasn't much, and most of it focused on alcohol and street or pharmaceutical drugs.   :(  That said, some of it did mention smoking, and for all addictions the basic recommendations were as follows:

B vitamins (as mentioned above.  BTW, they are water-soluble, so the body will excrete what it doesn't absorb.  They can be taken in the morning and again at lunch, but since they provide energy, it may not be a good idea to take them near bedtime or they may keep you awake).

Vitamin C for immune support and to help with detoxing.  Also water-soluble.

Essential Fatty Acids to nourish the brain

Hydrating with lots of clean water -- helps to flush the toxins out of the body

Detoxing (milk thistle is good for the liver, which is the main organ for filtering everything the body takes in; also vitamin C and hydrating as previously mentioned)

Eliminating sugar, white flour, etc. from the diet

Eating protein (small meals) several times a day to keep blood sugar steady


Personally, I'd just focus on the B vitamins, vitamin C, hydrating, etc. and not worry quite so much about the last 2 on the list, or it could get really overwhelming.  That's just my  2cents.  I'll stop now.  :)
