Thank Cod It's Friday! That means mom will have two whole days home with us. We are going to pin her down so we can have a lot of snuggle time with her.
Miss Katie Isabella wanted to know how I was doing so I will tell her, and everyone else too! I had a follow up visit with my vet regarding the two "hot spots" that I had on my back. That was on December 28. The spots had cleared up and my fur was growing back. I had been taking predisone for two weeks prior to the follow up visit. In that two week time period I gained 7 ounces, which put me up to 8.3 pounds. My vet wanted to me to stay on the steroid for another month, staying on the every other day schedule. I still had an ulcer on my lip.
I finished the second round of steroids on Sunday. The lip ulcer was gone. Mom took me to the vet for a weight check and much to her consternation (and mine) I had lost 2 ounces. We were really hoping I would gain just a little more weight. My vet decided to leave me on the predisone for one more month (taking it every other day as I have been doing).
The good news is my appetite is good and I love eating my kibbles. I still patrol the house in regular intervals and I'm interested in things that are going on around me. I still like to snoopervise!
We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Be safe, stay warm!
