From the mom - today was to be another trip to the city library for me and Shiloh - operative word - WAS.
This morning we had spent almost an hour on the deck with the Furminator then to the tub for a bath. Shiloh did really good - all I had to do was place his front paws on the side then he practically jumped in on his own - no problem. No problem IN the tub - never tried to jump out. He patiently waited in the tub while I started drying his ears and face then slowly came out - no problem - or so I thought. Sometime while I was drying him some more with the towel is when he first yelped then whined. Of course I began having all these thoughts flash through my mind - mostly thinking about his previously diagnosed Inter-vertebral Disk Disease along with the thought - what had I done to cause his current pain. Luckily after his bath it was sunny and warm outside so I just took him out. At first I didn't think it was bad and maybe it isn't-
Shiloh is getting around some and his tail is up and wagging - not tucked tightly between his back legs the way it was when first diagnosed. So I am hoping and praying Shiloh just strained a muscle and with a little rest he will improve on his own - with all my own medical expenses with my eye, especially the ongoing medication and knowing this vet visit, unlike Shasta's, could very well include x-rays or more, just not ready to commit to another vet visit yet, especially on a Sunday with an ER vet. I hate to sound that way - would love to rush Shiloh to an ER vet however he is acting better than before so like I said - hoping and praying that some rest and decent temps will do the trick. Then see what is what tomorrow.
In the meantime, The DIVA Shasta is doing very well.
To look at her, you cannot even tell she had a problem.
If you could, please give Shiloh some POTP and prayers that it is nothing more serious then a little pulled muscle. Thank you.
