Almost a year to the day since her last vet appointment, Sleet went back for her 'roid shot. Her allergies have gone nuts again. Sure wish I knew what she is allergic to. Depro-merdol is working it's magic again though and she's already slowed down on the scratching and seems happier.
Even got some good news today. Her left canine cruciate ligament, which I thought was blown out, is intact. She's got the usual athritis that comes with being a 13 year old dog. (86 in human years according the vet's chart). Overall, she's doing alright though. Heart, lungs, all the important organs still appear to be working properly. She's still boss of the younger dogs, eats well, plays a bit and still wants to come on walks, much shorter than the 50km a day she used to run, but she still looks forward to her outings! I still hear about it if she gets left behind too often.
Vet prescribed Cosequin for her athritis. I almost choked at the price, but if it keeps my sweetie comfortable and happy longer, it's worth every dime.
