POTP - This time IS one of us - the SHILOH edition


Mom Kim here- hopefully this flare-up won't last long and I pray that is all this is - a flare-up of Shiloh's back problems - IVDD - Intervertebral Disk Disease.

He had kind of a busy morning yesterday - at least for him.  First we had an appointment with his dogtor - routine shots and nail trim is all.  After that we went to Petsmart - his favorite store.  Those two things by themselves were probably not the culprit.  It was getting in and out of the vehicles - a mini-van (a taxi)  and my sis's SUV so the step-up was a bit more than just a car.  I did notice that he was reluctant at getting in the vehicles.   Then I remembered something else - our vet's assistant needs constant reminders to be careful when picking up Shiloh and I am sure Shiloh was picked up (didn't hear a whine or yelp but with all that the vet had to do, and the fact the vet could not pick up Shiloh (he's got lower back/leg problems of his own) I wouldn't be surprised if this contributed to Shiloh's current problems.  Something else I'm wondering about and praying that I'm wrong - did the injection itself trigger something or the drug cause some kind of a drug interaction - he's never had problems with the drugs before however there is always a first time for everything.

 Usually Shiloh will let Diva Shasta lay next to him - not now and he really doesn't even want me touching him- not even this morning when he came in and was a little damp - he loves to be toweled off, not this time - I had to stop him from walking away - at least he IS laying down and sleeping now - earlier he couldn't even settle.

So this time when I ask for POTP, purrayers and prayers, it is for one of the Beaglebratz - Shiloh.


I am also praying that the Duralactin he is on, has been on for a couple of years now, will continue to do it's great work that it did before (and yes, this is a shame-less plug for the supplement - it has done wonders for him - last time he had a flare-up, it was only a few days when Shiloh was looking at me like this-
