Great news that Kelso is doing better and feeling well enough to be "squeaky".

Thank you guys again!

Hollysmom-

when did you start taking your girl out again? The vet said she thought it was ok to take him on walks as long as he was not around stray dogs?

His energy level has always been high and he is just pacing around the house at times! Do not want to play ball yet, as that strange thing he was doing last time with the hunching scared me.

Would love to see a pic of your girl by the way!! Please!!

Appreciate all the great advice from everyone

I started taking her out when we started reducing the pred dosage, but like your vet said, no stray dogs.

blackmoon The poor baby, hope he doesn't get cold. Do you have a dog coat or old sweatshirt he can wear if he gets too chilly? That's good news that he's growing some fur now!!!

Then starts eating grass. I don't want him too active of course but wanted to see if he wanted to do it and he loves his ball and I really just want him to be happy. I do not think I will do it again until we talk to the specialist. I don't know what that means but after the first time (which I thought was just something strange) it was alarming to see him do that again. Maybe it is because he has lost muscle?...
wub Love that picture, he's such a handsome dude!!!

Are you giving him anything for his stomach like Pepcid A/C or sucralfate/Carafate? From the way you're describing it, it sounds almost like some type of irritation ... maybe stomach or intestinal irritation problem (just saying this because of the pred). Just a thought ... you can ask the vet on Tuesday!!!

Gayle- I think you hit the nail on the head. I have not seen the hunching since we started the Pepcid!!!

HO! HO! HO! I'll bet that handsome boy will hurry up and break records getting well if you make him wear that outside on cold days!!! He looks ADORABLE (well, more adorable than usual).

Glad to hear that the Pepcid AC resolved that hunching problem!!!

Love the coat.....

The pred does cause lots of stomach issues, my girl was on Famotadide while she was on the pred. Once we stopped the pred, the stomach issues were gone.

glad for the update, and sounds like he is doing great.

Hey Steph, I haven't been around lately so I just saw this. So sorry to hear your boy has been sick! Sounds like there's a lot of uncertainty in exactly what happened, which sucks. He's so beautiful and such a great dog, I feel like I know him. I'll be checking back more often to see how he's doing. hugging
