Dynamo is apparently doing better. i say "apparently" because my husband ended up taking him into the vet's where he has to stay, possibly till Monday. For the treatment of doggy pancreatitis (i have little info about people pancreatitis) the best thing seems to be loads of fluids and probably antibiotics by i.v. That, of course, they can provide best in the Veterinary Hotel and Suites.
When my hubby called the vet's this afternoon to see how Dyno was doing (poor hubby is experiencing severe withdrawal without his doggy) he was told that Dyno was doing so well that he might be able to come home tomorrow, on Saturday, a whole two days earlier than the worst case scenario! (Or "best case scenario" if you are the one receiving rather than paying the payment for above mentioned Veterinary Suites services.)
Other good Dynamo news is that he has lost a whole pound since he started treatment a month ago for the pancreatitis and the underactive thyroid. i'm thinking of sharing his low-fat kibble.
Tomorrow i'll give a wrap up of Week One in the Pain Management Class. Weirdly i've already learned a lot.
