Very glad to hear hat Charlie is improving :)
While I'm not usually a fan of drugs that are that long-lasting, I'm now admitting they have their place. Monday I picked up a kitten that had had a leg amputated, and was told she'd been given Convenia. I had specified No Metacam, but forgot to include Convenia. I will admit I'm glad not to have to medicate this little Hellion on a daily basis. She may be only two pounds, but it's two pounds of squiggle <g>.
I also found there is now a long-acting formm of buprenorphine, Buprenex SR. 72 hours. While I'd likely want try a single dose to gauge any reaction before giving that, I think it's a great option.
