You guys are too funny!! Methadone is not crystal meth being cooked up by all those old folks while in their underwear in their RVs. Methadone is a synthetic opioid and is used for pain, as is buprenorphine. Mona also went nutty on buprenorphine in that she’d race around the house before she fell asleep.

Vets use these drugs because they work well for pain. Unfortunately some of our pets have unusual behaviours when on them. 

Thankfully Elsie is much better now and racing around the countryside. heart

It is used to help people come off heroin too though. That’s what I was thinking of. It was just bizarre seeing it in Elsie’s notes. I didn’t realise vets used it so widely, though apparently they do…

YAY Elsie Pie!!! 

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
