Aodhán had her latest treatment on Monday of this week. She's still doing really well and the vet is pleased. She was down to 73-74 pounds from about 77 the last visit. The vet thinks this is a good weight for her, but she fluctuates a little from month to month depending on what we may be feeding at the time

DH took Caleb and Aodhán for a hike yesterday morning. It started out as a planned 5 miles or so. He told me last night that he just decided to keep going and it ended up as a 10 mile walk. Aodhán was dragging a bit for the last couple of miles, but perked up at the thought of seeing cows (they walk along a farm road).
But she was one tired puppy last night. She was looking at me and the couch - like "Can I please come up and relax with you. The couch looks so nice and soft."
She was a bit stiff it seemed when she got up off the floor. So naturally I let her come up and keep me company. I told DH that if he was going to do another 10 today to take Caleb and let her stay home. I'll give her a walk tonight after I get home from work.

I would probably be tired and want the couch too!

Good job Aodhán!

I know I would have been tired after 10 miles, too. It's not that we don't do hikes that long, but it has been a while and it's been hot and humid here. He's good about taking breaks and such, but sometimes he just gets in the mood to keep walking. I think it was a little much for her all at once. But all you have to do is say the word "walk" and she's still up and ready to go.

DH is going to a civil war event in a couple of weeks and a couple of his buddies and he are going to hike a 17 mile trail one day while he's down there - so part of this is "training" for the hike. The buddies want to do this hike in full gear, so of course DH has to do it, too. Even though he thinks they are nuts. It's not part of the event and it's likely to be hot and humid. Not a fun 17 miles in wool and a full kit - at least I don't think so.

The dogs and I are staying home and keeping cool.

Just a brief Aodhán update.

Aodhán went in for her annual exam a couple of weeks back and had her thyroid check. Vet says it looks good and no need to check again until next year. Course, he spoke with my DH and I didn't get specifics on the numbers. Have to follow up on that when we get a chance.
She wasn't due for rabies and I told DH to tell the vet no other shots. At 9 years old, I think she's OK. My vet doesn't quite agree with the decision, but at least he doesn't get super pushy about my choice.

And (KW) I haven't found any more ticks on her since we started the Bug-Off. Going to keep that up for now.

To anyone who looks at this and uses the Bug-Off - do you keep it up year round or stop in the winter months (especially here in the North-East)? The bottle recommends to keep them on year round, but I wonder if giving her a break for the winter is OK. She eats it, but doesn't really like the taste too much. And I could do with out the extreme garlic breathe for a couple of months. smile

Well, Aodhán was in yesterday for her chiro adjustment and acupuncture. Everyone continues to be very happy with how she is doing.

DH said that her vet said "She's my favorite GSD that is treated here." They really like how mellow and co-operative she is when they have her on the table for her treatment.

I don't think they've seen my bouncy yodeling girl when I get her ball out to play or get the leash out to take her for a walk fetch penguin_spin . You'd think she had never been taken for a walk before or had a chance to play ball eyeroll

But she's all adjusted and ready for vacation. We're going on a trip with the two dogs soon and timed this treatment for vacation. Oh, that's another thing deserving of yodels and bouncing around like a fool - car rides. You ought to see her if DH says they're going for a "ride-walk". hammer rofl2

Thank goodness Aodhan keeps her spunky side under wraps while she's at the vet's! fetch She's such a wonderful girl, no wonder they adore her there. I'm glad she's responding so very well to her treatments. groovy Johanna, you and DH are amazing owners toget her the chiro and acupuncture. It sounds like the vet clinic is really good, too. Aodhan wub is one fortunate girl! May she totally have her groove on for your vacation! penguin_spin

Lisa,

I think we've been very lucky that things are working out so well for her. Wish I could take some of that luck and send it to you and Max.

I've looked back at this thread a couple of times since Aodhán died from hermangiosarcoma. I felt that I wanted to give this a little closure.

I am so glad that we decided to get the chiropractic and acupuncture treatments for her. All in all, it wasn't that expensive after the first couple of months and it did her so much good. She was a happy, fun loving girl in her last year - not that she wasn't happy and fun loving during her life. But in the time before we started treament, she had definitly slowed down and the toe knuckling that I saw that started this all was scary to me. It was amazing to me how much difference this made for her and how much more active she became after we started the treatments.

It's something I would definitely do again for any of my dogs if they need it down the road. And I would recommend at least trying with any dog that was having back or rear end problems.
