UPDATE 3: 4/3 Vet visit

WDoctor told us that Yuki's lumbar spine near her pelvic bone is inflamed, but they're waiting for the blood work results to come back.

I'm a bit surprised that an inflammatory can cause such pain to where she can't poop and she has to literally sit on the floor to go - which is what she did when she first left the vet.

He also said they found a lesion on her spleen, but he can't tie it together with the pain right now.

We were sent homes with Provicox, Gabapentin and Tramadol Hydrochloride pills. I hand fed yuki her pills along with her "breakfast" at 230.

She's been whining a lot and looking dazed with her jaw open.

She has to be confined for two weeks. This is going to be a difficult task for me because 1) we don't crate her at all - ever and 2) the training and/or care in the house isn't so... consistant and 3) my job isn't so consistant in the schedule as well.

This all may not seem like a big deal to some, but it is when you see your dog in pain and you want to do more than pain killers to help. But, I'm also glad its nothing extreme... For now.

We also like to express Much gratitude and thank those who were concerned on the well being of Yuki...

I am laying beside her on the floor while she whines and stares at me trying to sleep.

  1. I'm so sorry. Stay strong, Yuki! It's Easter, good things happen. Can your vet or any other vet recommend student-volunteers to help you out? Maybe there's a local vet school or organization or maybe even a rescue group that could come in and help you?

  2. Hi Yuki and Julie - glad it isn't anything that rest won't cure but also I totally understand the frustration of not being able to explain to Yuki what is going on. She's suffering and you can't FIX it and you can't tell her why. But you're a great pawrent so I know it will work out. Good luck, let us know if you need anything!


It's been awhile... Again

It seems to be a constant pattern with us and social media. We're here, then we will disappear for a bit. I guess I can't maintain ...
