Doggie’s Health Improving

09 Mar

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 11.13.11 PMI never thought I’d be so grateful to see our golden lab hike a leg to urinate. Three times I’ve seen this phenomena today and count each one a blessing. An actual walk of 5 minutes with him sniffing around, that interested light beginning to return to his eye, was a feat. Whether it’s the antibiotics, thyroid medicine or the other pills, something seems to be working.

We’re not out of the woods yet as he is not drinking as much as needed and still hardly eating enough.

“Feed him anything,” the vet’s assistant said. “Boiled chicken is usually good,” she gave me three prescription foods (very high calorie and nutritious) to try to get him to eat.

Only hours after the one can of Science Diet a/d critical care food, he tackled the stairs for the first time.

My husband says, “That vet saved his life.”

We are so grateful for each day.
