My boy Shiloh just suffered some kind of a setback less than an hour ago - it may have started earlier but that is when I was really paying attention to what he was doing - he started yelping a little, pacing-couldn't get comfortable, trembling and a little panting. He has eaten ok and gone out to potty. I have given him his pain med and muscle relaxant. He had been doing better so I cut back on his meds since they said "as needed". But we all know that dogs are not always the best barometer at letting us know what they need. Now, since he had those two meds, he is relaxing and laying on his bed - The DIVA Shasta is right beside him. I hope the effects of those two meds last long enough til I get home from work.
I'm sure most if not all know the helpless feeling one gets when you look at their furbaby who is obviously in pain - it broke my heart to look in his eyes and see his total confusion and fright at what was going on. So, what I thought/hoped for was a lasting improvement, evidently was temporary but is hopefully leading to a more lasting improvement. However, if he is having more problems when I get home later - back to the vet we go to find out what the next step is.
Would you please keep Shiloh in your prayers?
(Maybe I should get him a critter to chase-
that seemed to help before)
