Somewhere there is a level of Hell in which giant German shepherds feed bad vets* pills that they chew and spit out and then have to take all over again.
*Teddy’s present vets are good. But we did have a bad one a few years ago.
I could hardly hold the dog up today at his vet visit because of the muscle thing going on in my arm. But at least I can type a little! The acupuncture doctor said NOT TO, so I won’t do much of this. I go back tomorrow for more needles. Anyhow, poor dog had x-rays and blood work and the entire works. Vet says he hears a soft heart murmur (they’ve never heard one before) and on the X-rays showed us some heart enlargement. Panic set in, but the blood work will tell if he has any serious heart disease causing some of this coughing. Meanwhile, back to the antibiotics. In pill form. Time-released, so no liquid form. Yuck!
Good thoughts appreciated, as always. He feels better, I think. He was a very brave soldier, getting turned upside-down to be x-rayed (so they could see the trachea collapsing a little on the cough)! I couldn’t do THAT without lots of screaming. I scream enough when they’re doing the little cuts to speed up the acupuncture! *ouch*
