I wouldn’t say my dog is back to normal, but she’s definitely on the mend! For the first time in about 10 days, I did not have to carry her outside…she was able to walk on her own. She still has some trouble with her back legs on our wood floor, but she’s looking better. She’s also eating! I was gone for a couple hours early this afternoon and when I came back half of her kibble was gone! She hasn’t been eating kibble in at least ten days. She hasn’t been eating much of anything. I’ve been offering her tiny bits of whatever she’d eat about every hour or two…these last couple of days she’s actually been eating a fair amount. But I was really surprised to come home and find she ate some kibble, too!

And this isn’t just wishful thinking…her red blood cell count is up, too! Up to 24! When I think of where we were a week ago…

Realistically, she’s not going to be around a whole lot longer. But as I keep telling people who ask, she’s okay for now.

Maybe in a couple weeks, I’ll be back to haunting the animal shelters…

What a difference a week makes!

    Thinking of you and your doggie.

      Thanks! The vet said it was an amazing result, too…it’s going up faster than he would have expected.
