Well, it may be awhile for the papilloma
Everything I have read says 3-5 months and that's in a dog with a healthy immune system. I have read a few articles though that claim there are herbal remedies. I will talk to Dr. Marsden on Tuesday at our appt. Giardia is a parasitic protozoan. I'll put a link to it so you can read what it is. It's fairly common. Nookie monster had it when we got him as well.

LoL ya, nookie "meant" something different to us too , but I'm so used to using it for the monster that it doesn't even come to mind anymore! We starting calling him that because he loves his cookies and Nookie Monster just seemed to fit him

And we are hoping it lasts too!! He has been so cute the last couple of days. He was so rowdy when we went to the vet yesterday that Shaun had to take him outside until the appointment. He just waltzed in and started howling as though he were announcing himself, got all the dogs in there going and wouldn't stop! little pupper!

The receptionists were calling him the class clown. Then when the techs took him to the back we could hear him singing to them the whole time. The one came out, just laughing, and said she promised they weren't hurting him... he was just very happy and feels like singing

We are hoping so as well. It has been such a roller coaster. We know we could still lose him so we're just taking it one day at a time and really enjoying the good days with him

Robyn,I can just hear him at the vet,my neighbors Fate,a white Husky,tends to sing a lot too,it's so cute.
I too tear up when I read "nookie"is doing better,it would be wonderful if he could get a break from going to the vet(you too),to be a carefree pup again

It was hilarious for sure. I was never so happy to see him being disruptive. Such a huge change from the week before when he had to be carried in! He was just a happy, playful little boy all weekend. I have a cold and was trying to rest yesterday, but he kept climbing on the couch, biting my feet, biting my sleeves and trying to "kill" my fuzzy blanket lol. He was such a handful! He and Thorin were playing most of the day

We're sure hoping that will happen! So far, so good. We have an appt. with the holistic vet tomorrow. He said he can tell if he's going to have a seizure before it happens
Not sure how, but we're trusting him! His herbs have done wonders so far

I haven't logged on here in awhile and sure glad to hear that little Nookie is doing well.

LOL at him singing at the vet's office ......too cute. That sure would have brought a smile to my face too.

How did the visit go with the holistic vet? Do hope that Nanook is still doing well.

Hi, I saw Robyn, Nanook and Thorin this past Saturday and they all were doing terrific. Sasha and Nookie played for a bit but Buddy had to sit this one out as Nookie has Papillomas. I am sure you will hear from Robyn soon. They leave for the States around the 19thI think...patti

Sorry!! I had pets open at work but got busy and didn't look at it lol. Nookie is doing really well so far. He's been a perky, happy little monster... just like he should be

He's lame and has a bad limp in his left front quarter, but it doesn't hurt him. He may recover. Dr. Marsden said if he does, it will take some time. But even if he doesn't, it's ok. He doesn't know anything's wrong

He's been down to a 5mg daily dose of pred for almost 2 weeks now(the lowest dose he's been on to this point)! We're on seizure activity watch. Dr. Marsden has him on Stramonium and a Chinese herbal combination to help keep the seizures at bay. It can take up to 6 weeks to be fully effective, so until then, we just have to keep a close eye on him

So here's hoping (and 'ing)!!
