We still don’t know . . .

We still don’t know what the source of the pain is. Right before the onset of pain her appetite, bowel movements, and behavior were normal. Due to the medicine her interest in her usual food has decreased so now I give her some special stuff and she gobbles it down. That makes us happy. Yet, after six days of being on pain medicine her hind leg is still weakened and worsened. Sad enough her foot will bend back and she’ll try to stand that way and doesn’t even notice. So, now we use a towel as a sling to help her out during potty time.
Now she just lays in her bed while every once in a while I’ll bring her water bowl to her to drink and take her out for potty.

My heart is breaking

My heart is breaking; this is how Avery is doing now. Not very well. It started wednesday night with a lot of panting and pacing. We sensed she was in pain and started giving her pain meds; with no change went to the vet today. Blood work looks normal, all the x-rays/ imaging looks fine. I think she has been pacing so much that she has fatigued her hind leg to the point it has weakened greatly. We now have 4 diff pain meds and waiting to see if it’ll help. If not off to the emergency room at NC State vet school.

1 Year Ampuversary!!!!

July 3, 2016

Today is Avery’s one year ampuversary!  She is still cancer free! She will have a vet appointment July 11 to have all the x-rays, blood work, and such to make sure she is clear. She is such a sweet and happy go lucky girl. We still get comments from people that at first they didn’t realize she only have three legs.
