My dog Benji was just diagnose with diabetes in July of 2013. At first it was hard to give him insulin shots. I saw a add for easy injector and you put the syringe needle into injector and press a button and the needle goes in and then you inject the insulin. He is very good with that never gives me trouble now. It is so much easier to give it to him now. I know a lot of dog owners have trouble with giving insulin to dogs. they squirm and cry. My dog was the same way. I hated giving it to him. Now I am very happy with the injector and I know he is too.
Janelle, I agree completely.
I had heard about the relapse of the injury symptoms before, I think one of the doctors actually told me about it. I think it usually happens because you feel better so you tend to jump right back into what caused their problem in the first place.
And if you need 4 cortizone injections your doctor isn’t very good. If one doesn’t work then you might try a second in hopes that it finds the affected area more accurately. No way should they try 3 or 4 – you should try something else.
I’ve had about a 75% success rate, thus, I like them. They’re a quick easy fix IF they work. I think I just have weak tendons and ligaments. You can build up muscle and strength with PT but you really can’t get tendons and ligaments to get stronger.
There are many effective medicines to treat asthma. Most people with asthma need two kinds: quick-relief medicines and long-term control medicines. Immunotherapy ( allergy shots ) can also be helpful.
Patients may be reluctant to take medication because of cost or the potential side effects. If you have such concerns, talk with your allergist. Your allergist will work with you to find the right medicine, or combination of medicines, to manage your asthma and will adjust the dosage based on your symptoms and control. The goal is to have you feel your best with the least amount of medicine.
