To sleep, perchance to dream.....

I am glad to say that Paris is doing pretty well on just the large dose at night of the hycodan. Neither one of the pain meds did anything. He sleeps through the night and so I get to sleep also. Boy was I getting grouchy! Something had to give.
He still has his morning coughing fit and some during the day but I'd say he is doing pretty good for an old blind guy.

Sleepless in Neptune Beach

So after 4 nights with very little sleep, I still have a dog impervious to meds.
I have tried Deramaxx and now Tramadol, both pain meds, but the vet said it should help him sleep. No such luck! Tonight I will try increasing his hycodan a bit and see if that will help.
I just don't think he is in pain, I think he is more confused and scared when he wakes up.

Not so good news

I didn't get to fix the backyard problem yet.
Paris has been having a terrible week. He is whining at night and panting. I started him on pain meds to help him sleep at night but it isn't working. I hate the thought of him in pain on top of all his other problems. I have called the vet several times, but if this continues I may have a hard decision to make. Keep Paris and me in your thoughts.

Lost again

Paris has started going over the log border by the birdbath in the back yard, so this weekend it will be off to the home depot to get some more wire fencing. I have found him "lost" in that area three times so far this week. Silly dog.
