Wordy Wednesday

 Mom and I had a consultation with my vet one week ago today.   We discussed a lot of things and he gave mom a couple of choices about how to proceed.   She chose the Anipryl aka Selegiline tablet given once a day.    

Mom remembered reading about this drug in our Remember Me book by Eileen Anderson and she couldn't wait to get back home and reread what Eileen wrote.    Eileen's book is very informative with lots of great information.   She had a dog named Cricket, who was a Rat Terrier who had dementia and once Cricket started taking the Anipryl, she lived two years longer.   She passed when she was almost 17 years old.  

We have not yet received the Anipryl.   It's due to arrive on Friday.  It's suggested to be given in the morning, so I will be starting it on Saturday morning if all goes as planned.

I have never been a dog that can cross paws.  Mom has tried multiple times and all she gets is a scratched hand from my nails~
How about this, mom~
Or what about this cross~
My vet shared with us that this drug can go either way.  Either it works or it doesn't.   One of his patients with dementia took the tablet and started racing around the house and peeing and pooing everywhere.   A patient that was coming in on the day that we were there was doing fabulously.    Paws are crossed that I am that patient!

Happy Wednesday!

Love ya lots♥

  12. Sweet Molly and Mom, you deserve the treatment that helps. Praying that the drug works while keeping you both in good thoughts.

    I love your humor with the crossed paws challenge. You're going to win, sweet Molly!

  13. We will cross our paws that the Anipryl will work for you. Lightning may be taking a dementia med in the near future, but Mom doesn't want to add too much at one time. He just got his gabapentin back because it didn't appear to be the culprit for his night wakefulness. He is also starting some melatonin to see if that helps his health in general.
