Jean,

Your blog about Mila needs to be published in the veterinary literature, seriously. It contains so much medicine along with your concern and humor.

So more good wishes to your older patient and her many local admirers.

MJ

Mary Jane - as always, you are *too* kind. Thank you.

KW Mila ate 4 meals today, some of her Meaty Bones, got all her meds and looks better. She was wagging and doing some barking (not great but good she wants to).

I got her free (love free) abx and some canned food - something called Grandma's casserole and...some kind of something Fields Farm? Anyway good for making pill meatballs and wow did she love the casserole one. Good to see that!

Thanks again!

Good to read some movement in the right direction, healthwise if not the barking. thumbup

Yes, another happy post. smile The Mila monster is slowly emerging...I think this 2nd tx threw her for a loop. But she is a tough girl and super sweet - I love her as a "patient" because she tries to cooperate, takes her pills if she can, and likes to be babied a bit.

I forget how hard this is on them even when they can sail through, they still are getting the poop knocked out of them. I posted about the caval syndrome last night on the blog and was like ooooooh....I needed a reminder!

She's gotten a taste for canned food and now tries to steal the cat's food on her way by so that's good?

We are now tapering off the pred a little. I think it helped A LOT or seemed to. So is the amoxi it seems!

She appreciates the good thoughts! Thanks!

Yeah, Mila! So glad to hear you are getting spunky. What a great girl to take your meds for Mom.

Skye says you are so smart to try for a bite of cat food. She thinks it takes great, too.

It all sounds good Jean, so happy to hear the improvement. I missed the amoxicillin part, or can't remember, or I'm just getting old maybe? I haven't read the last blog installment, a bit behind!

Jean,

I just watched the video on Mila's blog showing DAvey's heartworm surgery.

I can't figure out to post a comment there, but I wanted to say that everyone who thinks monthly heartworm meds are too expensive or that "my dog won't get heart worms" should be required to watch the video.

What a great blog you have. It may save a dog's life some day just by prompting it's owner to treat it.

Thank you!

smile Mila loves Dr. Bruno. Thank you for checking on her!

She's allowed to see him again and she's happy. He...well...he hasn't corrected her yet, but I know if she pushes it, he will so I try to help her understand how you treat the good doctor.

She is doing really well. I extended her crate and leash stuff because she had so much trouble there for a week. The four week mark is not a magic time and I remember a dog that came from Arkansas named Emme, years ago, who through WHAT?!?! I need a vacation! THREW a giant clot on the last day of her crate rest and almost did not make it.

Mila will be going to the groomers on the 14th allowing her time to build up a little before all that rigamarole. The groomer is great with older dogs or dogs with ortho issues. Or dogs like mine. laugh Mila is actually looking and smelling better already - something comes out through the skin with that treatment that is weird smelling.

So next week we'll start working into being more active, slowly and carefully, observing how she does.

There is no chance tripe would be found here Chipster! I gag giving them sardines...it's just not...I can't.

Thanks on the blog - I do hope it helps someone/some dog. I started a big link list too on it of all the places I've gotten info from for it. That video...I can't watch videos that well on my computer and that one makes me kind of glad I can't.

Mila had someone interested in her, but I think they are going to adopt a shelter dog, which is great for the shelter dog, but very disappointing for Miss Mila. I am sure her person is out there, sense of humor required or they will miss out on so much of her wonderfulosity.
