Awwww , your such a good momma!! Keep us posted on Lisi’s dental, I will be thinking of her, lots of love and prayers for your beautiful babydoll.💞
Happy to hear the little lost dog found his owner. I love happy endings.Thanks Kathy. I have kept busy so as to be distracted. The little guy we were hoping to foster found his owner so we will just stay a snug family for now. L & K don't really like having other dogs in the house but he looked so scared & lost that my heart jumped quickly.
I am so happy Pipper is doing so well.
Good luck with everything tomorrow and I hope you sleep better tonight than I did before Pippers dental. 😏Kathy, it is actually a doctor's appt. for me! Last wk. I had to call the EMS (who apparently showed up w/a fire truck---which I did not know until talking w/my neighbor yesterday). I have had this appt. already for a while so am glad to finally get in to see someone who is hopefully competent. I don't think now I will take time to go to lunch but that was on the schedule. I want to get L home before I leave for Austin, hopefully. Her vet promised to do her best.
And now I bet it's such a relief for you to have it over with. I know the feeling.My vet knew I had a doctor's appt. in Austin so took her at 7:30! She also knows I will scream if I need to get her! Having lived in a Germanic culture for so long makes me revert to "creature of habit" mode. . . something I had to learn or get trampled in the process!
I hope the rest of Lisi's night is better. Hopefully she can sleep ok tonight too. Maybe she is pawing her face because the stitches might be annoying. I have seen Pipper pawing his face a bit but not too much.OK, so I spoke too soon. Came home from my doctor's appt. to find Lisi had had a terrible stool sort of all over & she was very hungry. She can't eat solid food for 2 wks. so I pulsed some butternut squash that I had cooked last night & added a soupy bit of the food that I think is increasing her liver enzymes---she gobbled it down & wanted more, but she won't get any for at least a couple of hours. I have to see how she does w/the first bit. I am sure it has to do w/the antibiotic injection she got. She is bitting her paws & pawing her mouth. As soon as the food has a bit of time to digest I will give her some Tramadol. She looks like I took her out of the vacuum cleaner bag----but I love her to pieces.
Pipper is on antibiotic and metacam and gabapentin. So far, so good getting it into him. The gabapentin is a small pink capsule that I just sandwich between 2 small pieces of his canned food and hand feed it to him and the antibiotic is a tablet that I do the same with. He just swallows it whole. The metacam I just mix in his evening meal. It helps to have a dog that loves food as much as Pipper does.I had a horrific time trying to get the Tramadol down her. It is so bitter. She was very hungry so I put it in her food---big mistake. As soon as she got a taste she started shaking her head & would not eat her food. I had forgotten how much she hates it. Tomorrow or later tonight I may give her some of the liquid Metacam from Kitzel---it would be so much easier to get in since she can only have soupy food. Why did they give her tablet type med realizing her mouth was so sore!
