Update on Osteopathy Therapy for Megat

Dr L treated Megat yesterday. As usual Megat was quiet as Dr L performed acupressure. Megat left kidney was marginally better than 2 weeks ago but still it was encouraging. 

He advised that I give Megat some home-made beef or chicken broth if I have to force- feed him in the mornings instead of the pumpkin-potato-beef mixture of commercial baby food. Less dry food was the recommendation as well as his kidneys need to improve. Dr L felt that a compromised kidney might contribute to his problems in his intestines. 

We are making the beef broth for him today. I was supposed to make a broth out of beef and bones and feed it to him in the morning, with no vegetables. I also found a few cans of no-grain Call Of The Wild, and had sieved that to feed him this morning. He liked it quite a bit as he did not spit it out at me. I had added a little gravy from Whiskers beef and chicken. 

He eats by himself in the evening and he also has about 15 to 20 gm of kibble for a snack. For this I say thanks everyday :)

Later today he is going for ultra sound and of course his vincristine injection. 

Keep the Faith Megat!!

Update 2nd Vincrsitine

Megat went for his 2nd vincristine on 5 July and I was glad to find out that his weight had remained stable - from 3.67 to 3.5 kg. I was glad he did not lose any more weight than he already did. He was given prednisolone to help him with his lymphoma - GI tract as well. I am hoping that it would also help him with his nausea and lack of appetite but it was a no go.

He was given the following injections:
He had Betamox 0.50
Depredil injection 0.50
Dexaason injection 0.50
Metomide injection 0.50
Vincristine sulfate injection 1mg 0.10
Vitamin B Complex injection 0.30
With these injections, he did not get his usual fever and when he came home he very willingly ate his dinner and was quite active. However his appetite is not good and every morning he needs to be fed with syringes - baby food - pumpkin, potatoe and beef. Although I know that cancer will feed on carbohydrates, he still needs to eat something. He would not eat the wet pouch of Walthams Renal formula at all and vene when I had force-fed him, he was very unhappy and had spat it all out again. At least, he was willing to swallow the baby food.

I have been trying to find baby food with more meat than carbo, it was not a success.

i am also giving him C Caps - half in the morning and half at night apart from his usual sang hwang lingzhi suppositories (24/7), his sang hwang liquid extract 1.5 ml per day, his colloidal silver 2ml per day, the kidney activator 1 per day, prednisolone 1/2 per day, salbutamol 0.1 per day and his daily SubQ 250 ml per day.
