Wednesday 6th August 2014 - lost 20 grams over the last week. Looking very unwell and has an abscess beside his penis. He's had a Convenia jab at the vets, I'm bathing the abscess, and giving Meloxicam and Clavaseptin twice daily.
Wednesday 27th August 2014 - Still losing weight, now rattly as well. Steroid injection with a side dish of Clavaseptin, but not hopeful. My vet suspects that there'a a hidden cancer at work.
Thursday 18th September - Tiller has had weekly steroid injections as that was the treatment that seemed to work best, and I thought I'd halted his weight loss, but this week he had lost another 50 grams and looked so tired that I couldn't justify letting him carry on. He was not using his hands well, and either had right side blindness or inattention, so we're fairly certain there was a brain tumour. So sorry, my little man. xxx
