Jazzy (my dog) is here, not doing so bad!

My son brought my dog in from Indiana and she's not doing so bad. She's on pain medicine and she is more active than previously. She doesn't appear to be in pain although I did hear her yelp once when trying to get down from the bed. I don't let her jump - she wiggles around when she needs to get down and whines a little and that's how I know she wants down.

Her walk is crippled but it doesn't stop her from moving a little. She even walks around a little outside. The protrusion from her urethra is getting smaller so I'm hoping it's shrinking. The vet said the medication could do that. Now I'm looking for a vet here in Monroe for her.

I bought Innova puppy food from Pet Supplies Plus for her and she loves it. Evidently her appetite isn't affected yet. Even tho she's over 10 years old, I thought the concentration of puppy food would be good for her for a while. She weighed three pounds at the vet when she use to weigh five. I'll try to fatten her up a bit.

Wish us luck!

So sorry to hear your dear Jazzy is ill. Our pets become so much a part of our lives, it's hard to say good bye to them. Enjoy the time you have with her here!

Thanks Dixie - she sure is special. It's going to be hard to let her go when we can't control the pain any longer.
