Margarita has been doing wonderfully, and added another month of remission to her journey!
This month during the Covid-19 Quarantine, Margarita has been increasing her activity level to help boost her immune system and further increase her quality of life. We have also made sure her schedule allows time for relaxing activities out on the lake.
Monthly Oncology Check-Up
Rita’s monthly check up with her oncologist, Dr. Baez, at C.A.RE.S has been postponed to May due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Both Dr. Baez and Dr. Campbell, our veterinarian, agreed this would be safe and appropriate since Margarita is showing no clinical signs of Lymphoma.
Monthly Veterinarian Check-Up
Margarita saw Dr. Campbell at Old York Veterinary Hospital for her monthly check-up. Dr. Campbell was thrilled with Rita’s progress. Rita’s mammary masses were reported to have little-to-no changes. Margarita’s heart murmur also sounded to have no change. Her liver values were re-checked through blood work, and all of her values continue to improve! Margarita will stay on her current regimen of medications and supplements:
- Pimobendan for her heart disease caused by the chemotherapy
- Prednisone for her liver disease (hepatitis)
- CAS Options – an antioxidant and immune support supplement
- Denamarin to support her liver
Our monthly treats and/or activities outside of our home will resume once it is deemed safe by the CDC to lift the Covid-19 stay-at-home-quarantine.
