Hi, I tried ldn about 3 times according to an old threrad of mine I found back around 2009..for some reason it didn't agree with me..depression was one of them, but it did relieve the pain..and perhaps (A scan showed what was suspected ovarian cancer, b UT on opening up..it was nothing)..so I've just dug out the old tablets and diluted 1/4 of a tablet down ..and given the dog a dose. Coupled of questions... I don't expect to save the dog and the lumps in neck are huge..and the dog is riddled watery the lumps. Vet prescribed some cortisone to ease the pain for the dog and same pain relievers. So far I haven;t given any..but only got back from the vets 2 hrs ago. I have given (and will continue to give) some NZ green Lipped mussel..which does reduce the pain for the dog..and which the dog LOVES eating anyway.. abut I'm wondering is Cortisone OK with Ldn (the vet said don't give any other tablets with the cortisone as they will interact..I read here prednisolone? was Ok with ldn..so should cortisone be OK too?
2nd question- anyone ever given ldn to a dog? I figure if it just helps with pain relief it will be worthwhile. It did help with pain relief with me..but the depression was severe ...and I can't recall much else about it..sleep disturbances maybe?
Dog is already grouchy and snaps at his brother if he comes near..which is difficult as brother is completely blind..
wil;l try to update..vet expects dog to live about 6 weeks at most
