Default Melody

Fortunately, we seem to have turned a corner. She started having seizures every night, I was actually prepared to put her down this morning, but I discovered that one of her medications could be causing them so I discontinued it and last night she did not have a seizure. Of course, I won't know for sure for a few more days if we have licked the problem.

She was also drinking and peeing a huge amount due to the steroids, so she was constantly wet, but now that those are also finished she seems to be staying dryer. Again, time will tell.

She also has an infection and is on abx.

Doing well with sling-walking, but still nothing in the back legs. Vet thinks she won't walk again. We're looking into a cart. I don't give up that easy.

There's an elderly hound at the GABR waddle named Benjamin who uses a cart. He has been going strong with it for at least 3 years. I wouldn't give up either.
