Follow up on Lucy
Last week at this time I was crying in the middle of Petsmart. The Vet wouldn't console me, the checkout girls kept telling me they were sorry.
Now, my Lucy is running around the house like a maniac playing with my daughter's dog. You wouldn't know how sick she was last week.
I took her to the vet on Tuesday..she was somewhat better after I dumped the Science/Hills prescription crap they made me buy. I started making boiled chicken and rice and Lucy finally started eating. Well, the vet (her normal vet) looked at the bloodwork and said it was consistent with an infection. Any time we get an infection our liver gets some damage but it regenerates quickly so it's not a big deal. And only one enzyme was elevated -if it was more serious more would be elevated.
Just to be careful I need to take her in for more another round of tests in a month but the vet was pretty sure she was fine.
Thank you all for thinking good thoughts. She is my buddy. -
The pic is Lucy taking on a dog twice her size...that's my tough dog.
