Hey guys I don't want to get too excited or false hopes, but I think the knotgrass is helping! As you can see some bits on the cere that were brown in the previous pic are turning blue i think!! I keep telling him to eat it its okay, it's not grass it's knotgrass!!!

I have to say that I think the cere looks better in the second picture also!
Keep giving Buddy the knotgrass and I'll be looking forward to your next update. :hug:

Looks like we are back to blue! Should I keep giving him the knotgrass for the rest of his life or what? I wonder if its cos of the knotgrass or if its cos of spring making his body produce more testosterone which is making his cere blue? Cos before it was brown then it started to turn blue as i posted the pic, and then it started turning brown again, but then it became blue again

Though i figure the knotgrass must be doing something cos even with spring hormones if he had a tumor on his testes it would affect his testosterone, but it seems to be getting more blue and he is back to screeching my ears off

Well buddy's nose is turning brown again just like I posted in the picture on the first page :( If the nose is more brown does that mean the tumor is bigger? Should I keep giving him the knotgrass? they really dont seem to like the knotgrass and if its not going to make a difference i dont want to make him eat stuff that he doesnt like in his final days.

though right now he is still chirpy and affectionate and does not seem to be in pain

The cere turning brown again is due to hormonal changes, I would not assume it means the tumor is getting bigger. I would ask the vet again about the Lupron injections and if she still does not want to give it I would get a second opinion as that is pretty standard treatment for hormonal issues.

I agree with Cody - I believe a second opinion is definitely in order with regard to the Lupron injections.
Continue putting the knotgrass in the cage. He will only eat it if he wants to.
