Thanks for the update! Nice that your vet gave you a game plan to try. I will keep my fingers crossed for Russell and hope you have a good update to give your vet after the weekend. Hopefully he won't have to do the Theophylline, but if so, it could really help. The good thing about that stuff is that my boys like the taste of it, so it is very easy to give them. Raspberry flavored.
As for your question on the mix/dosage for the Theophylline, I have the bottle right here in front of me and I will type out exactly what it says on the label. I am a dork when it comes to understanding all the mls and so forth, but here goes: The label says:
50 mg/ml (I think that is the total contents of the bottle) and then it says: Raspberry 10 mls. Klausse give 0.14 ml orally every 8-12 hours for wheezing-bronchodilator. That is it. Then it says the same thing for Wolfgang, with his dosage. I am not sure if this helped or not. Just typing out what the bottle says.
At the very bottom of the label, it says: Theophylline 100 mg. tab, which makes no sense to me actually! As you can see, I am not a vet! Ha ha.
You are right...our boys are so the same in just about every way, Breyer, even with getting sick, unfortunately! But at least we know how the other feels when both our kids are not feeling well. I actually told Marc last night that I felt very close to Russell and Stanley as they seem like real "cousins" to our boys since they were all born on the exact same day, both dumbos, both boys, both brothers, both in the same type of cage, and the list goes on! So, I do feel like their auntie for that reason.
Thanks for your well wishes for Klausse, that is nice to hear. I just left a message for my vet, as a matter of fact and now I am waiting to hear back from her. Sound familiar?
Good luck and keep me posted of course!
