Tildren Today!

18 03 2010

Picasso began getting Tildren around 12 pm today. He was sedated and heart rate, temp checked to ensure not reaction. My vet Tere Crocker gave him a few vials diluted in a bag of saline to see if there would be any reaction before giving him more. All was well, so he got the rest and ended up using 2 one liter bags of saline to administer. He did very well.

I stayed with him until about 7:30 pm to ensure he wasn’t going to colic. Still a chance of it occurring over night, but when I left he had a heart rate of about 36 beats per minute, which was normal for him. So I am pretty confident he will be ok through the night. He attacked his dinner and pooped a couple of times, providing that at least for now, the digestive tract is still in gear. Fingers crossed no complications over night!

The Tildren will take a little while to have an effect. Some say one month, some say 3-4 months. Time will tell. But most people who have used it call it “magic.” We could use a little magic…..
