    Default Abbey

    Abbey turned 6 yesterday, so hard to believe!

    She had her annual neuro appt at the U of M with Dr. McVey today, and as we suspected, we need to increase her Gabopentin to three times a day. The last few months we've noticed her scratching has increased a few hours or so before her breakfast and again before dinner... the times when she gets her pill; the affects aren't lasting as long as it used to. McVey didn't see any clinical signs (limb weakness, gate, etc.) issues, so that's good. He talked to us about a possible new drug trial for SM that the U of M may be participating in. He said he let us know if she's a candidate.

    She's so lovely -- what an adorable face. I can't believe she is 6 either -- seems like we all just had our new young dogs a short time ago! The drug trial sounds very interesting! If you learn more drop me a PM. I'm sorry she needs an increased dose; Leo I think really does now as well.

    Oh Happy Birthday darling Abbey for yesterday, hope she had a good day adn was spoilt even more than usual!!

    Sorry to hear she's more scratchy - I think it's sensible to increase the Gabapentin, it's processed very quickly by the body so seems to work best given 8 hourly.

    Keep us posted on the drug trial - I wonder if it's similar to the one at RVC here in the UK?

    Yes, it is coordinated with the RVC trial. I should have more info on it in a few weeks.
