Hi my pals, Mommy wants to take over for a
minute so please be patient with her. Blogging is my thing, not hers.
I just wanted to let you all know why Sasha got
such a short trim yesterday. She has been itching like crazy lately and benedryl only helps so much. The Vet wanted to have her trimmed all the way down, so she could see her skin better and it is much easier to bathe her like this( she hates baths..."what no I...oh wait yes I do, never mind"). She does have a minor infection and so will be on antibiotics and also prednisone. I hope this helps, I feel so bad for her when she is itching so much and I find fur patches all over from her itching. So far she has been a really good girl with her medicine which I hide in pupperoni..".what Mommy??"...nothing Sash go back to sleep. I am going to try cheese also. They did refer to her as a Senior now, but Sashy is the most active dog and believe me, she is not a Senior in spirit. She loves a good game of football and a romp in the park.
I have one other concern that I ask your prayers for. The Vet thought she heard a heart murmur. She checked her after she was very agitated from the trim, so she wasn't sure, but ordered a chest x-ray. The x-ray looked fine and the other Vet at the end of the day, didn't hear it and thought it might have just been that Sash was so upset and her heart was pounding from that earlier. They did some special blood tests and we won't find out the results until next week. We lost our first shih tzu to a heart condition and so this scares me. Sasha doesn't have any symptoms so I have no reason to think that she is sick, but extra prayers never hurt. She is my little lovey. Ok Mommy out.
Ok my pals, I am sorry for the interruption and I will be back tomorrow sometimes you gotta let the Moms win. I have been feeling great today and for some reason I am getting a lot of extra pupperoni, which is just fine by me.
Happy St. Patricks Day and thanks for all your nice comments, I am not a Cougar after all.
p.s. Mom again, I forgot to mention that I almost needed medical care after I saw the bill lol, but of course she is worth every bit of it
