I would like to thank everyone who expressed concern about my long list of health troubles of late. How very thoughtful to send me (and a very worried Jeannie) your well-wishes! Here's a quick update on my long list of achey, virusy, and cystic party-poopers:
First, the kennel cough has been resolved - thank goodness! I just love to rub noses with other doggies, so being Typhoid Mary is no fun for me at all. :( Even though it hasn't been a full year since my last vaccine, Jeannie made sure that I got a Bordetella shot last week. So, I hope kennel cough will stay at bay for some time! Of course, anything is bound to happen with me.
The inter-digital cyst is slowly improving, though it doesn't seem to be bothering me one bit. I have at least 1 1/2 weeks left on special peanut buttery medication for this. Do your pills come topped with delicious peanut butter, too? YUM-MEEE!
Finally, the most recent issue: my mysterious limp. Dr. Metzler wasn't sure if the pain was in my foot, my elbow, or both. All Jeannie knows is that it happened sometime during the night. I went to bed perfectly fine, and woke up behaving as if I'd been struck my a car!
Here's a video taken that morning when Ben and Jeannie took me in to the vet. What do you think happened? Jeannie is betting that it was some ill-fated late night cat showdown. But, I don't remember a thing!
Happy ending: On Saturday morning, Dr. Metzler called Jeannie to say that I had improved a great deal. So, I got to come home! Yay! Even though I'm feeling much better now, Dr. Metzler wants Jeannie to watch me very closely until Friday. There's a slight chance that I will need another special shot to prevent my foot and elbow aches. Can't wait to return to Camp Bow Wow and my beloved dog park -- I'll be sure to post once I've been released from house arrest. :)
