    Thanks all! We're sill waiting to hear blood results, etc. Hopefully we'll get some good news with that.

    Thanks for the suggestions. A Cysto crossed my mind while we were there, but the vet didn't mention it and I don't really want to put him through that if possible to avoid it. We'll see what the free-catch urine says and then go from there. If we do the ultrasound, I'll mention to them to try turning him and see if that shows anything else. Thanks!

    Here is a side by side comparison of before and after the Stanozolol. I am amazed at the difference!!! So nice and wide open now. He had a bit of coughing yesterday with all the cold air, but generally speaking, he is coughing less now than he has in a long, long time.



    And his blood work results all look pretty good. His Kidneys and Liver are doing well. That was a concern for me because of all the drugs he's been on. I'm so glad his body has been able to tolerate and process those effectively. His Glucose was a bit elevated and that is something new that we haven't seen with him before, but it wasn't elevated enough to be a concern to the vet on this one time reading. So, overall everything looks great.... other than the possible bladder stones. We still have more "investigation" to do for that. Fingers and paws crossed that it was just a blip on the x-ray!

    Thanks all for the support!

    Great news on the blood work. Now praying for good news on the bladder stones - as in there are none.

    Just now getting a chance to update about the urine results. Everything looked great! No crystals, no blood or signs of infection. So, Vet said that we could opt to do an x-ray with a full bladder in "a few weeks or a few months" if we want, but that she is not concerned about at this point... she said sometimes things like that just show up. As long as the "stream" is flowing well, he should be fine. That is a huge relief! We'll will watch closely to make sure there are no potty changes, but otherwise I'm not going to worry too much about it.
    So, a good checkup overall!!! Hooray! What a difference a month and meds can make in the life of an old pug!!!
