Happy 2 month Ampuversary

Tika’s two month ampuversary. She’s doing absolutely great. She’s gone from her nickname of ham-butt, to her nickname of fuzzbutt. She’s getting used to letting us help her into the car, etc. We’ve discussed the Metronomic protocol with the oncologist and she has agreed to start Tika on the one pill, an NSAID called piroxicam.

The goal of the Metronomic Protocol is to impede the growth of any cancer cells/tumors.

Every three months we take Tika in for lung X-rays to see if they are still clear. We would like to keep her with us as long as possible with the best quality of life possible.

Tika has become nothing short of infamous at VSEC. She marches in and just talks to everybody and is an absolute goofball. VSEC isn’t really a place that folks go because their furry kids are doing well, so it’s nice to watch Tika bring a small smile to people’s faces or just for her to love them up. I think sometimes it gives them hope, because really Tika is a happy dog.
