Our dog Midnight has been sick for the past couple of weeks, overall, she hasn’t been too bad but she’s just not herself. We took her to the vet about three weeks ago and she was on medicine and she was a lot better for about a week and then she started going slowly downhill again. Then I noticed today that she was getting quite a bit sicker again so we called the vet and he was able to fit us in today.
The veterinarian decided on a very conservative treatment just changing her diet a little bit, doing a stool culture, and every time she’s outside we’re supposed to put a basket like muzzle on her face so that she can’t eat anything while she’s walking around just in case she’s munching on things that might be making her sick. She does eat the grass when she’s outside but we don’t let her get at anything else. We watch her very carefully when she’s outside. I’m pretty sure she’s not eating anything other than grass and maybe a few weeds that are mixed up in it but who knows maybe it’s the grass that irritating her.
The vet also said it could just be the heat that is making her so ill. Since it’s been so hot in the last few weeks we’ve been taking her on shorter walks and we do have air conditioning so she has been exposed to very little heat, but the vet still think she could be feeling and reacting to it.
I’m certainly hoping this treatment works, or that she just snaps out of it. I hate being worried about my baby.
While we were waiting for our appointment. I was looking around the office and I noticed that there was some pamphlets marked donate real estate to charity I’ve certainly never heard of that. Have you? I mean, I know that you can probably donate real estate charity, but I didn’t know there was a whole organization dedicated to it. I guess that makes sense.
Anyway, I mostly just looked at the little kittens that were in the office and browsed through the animal magazines while we waited for the appointment. I could tell my dog wasn’t quite herself because she didn’t even bark at the kittens. That’s totally not like her, although I’m sure the kittens appreciated her not barking.
Here’s hoping that Midnight gets better soon! I’m sure our home renovations and visiting relatives don’t help either -all the excitement and all.
