Mama Here, We just got home from Beau's Vet Visit
Here are the reasons for the visit.
Sore Butt, swollen and red
(expressed a LOT of smelly stuff, and said they swelling is common in large dogs, who are neutered as seniors, he was 6 and 1/2 when they neutered. Glandes is doing the job of forming stools, continue with it)
Getting hard to get up off the floor or climb on couch
(aging osteoarthritis, gave anti-inflammatory, try for a week and see if it makes a difference, double glucosamine)
Coughs when drinks water, had this when we got him
Only when he drinks. He was that way when we got him
(started with full body blood labs, and now we wait. This COULD be serious but is not right now.
I have to watch and journal and try to record it.
We Wait. this is the one that terrfies me. I had googled it and scared me silly.
Right now i can't remember what it is called. We don't know, we are testing.
Takes longer than 10 minutes to stop panting after exercise
Watch carefully, record and journal...
He said his heart and pulse and all vitals are great.
He is fine and resting after one hour of being poked, prodded, nails snipped
I am going to take a nap, Beau and Bob are napping as I type.
Basically Beau is OLD just like his Mama And Daddy...
