Did You Miss me today?

 


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...

Yes and I'm old too. I get it. I'm glad Beau can rest now. He's such a good boy.

Thanks for the update.

Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

What a trying day, having to go to the vet and then all the watching and waiting. Sending lots of prayers for a good outcome on all of it.
This aging thing is rough even on pups.

Hugs all around! So glad his vitals are strong. Waiting is the WORST!

I'm praying the test come back with positive news. Glad that his vitals were all good. Hope the anti-inflammatory help. Waiting is so hard. ((Hugs))

Best wishes for Beau and for you!

Getting old is not for wimps Beau. I hope all your blood work comes back good!

Darling Beau, I did wonder then remembered about the vet visit. My goodness, you have had a thorough going over, it seems - which is good! Now the waiting can worry the mama, but I know you will love her and play ball with daddy just the same and try to keep them calm. Meanwhile, I am admiring the wonderfurs new banner mum has made for your bloggy. Sending a little POTP on the side. Can't do any harm, right? Hugs and wag,s YAM-aunty xxx

Brian said...

Of course we missed you Beau and we're sending tons of prayers and POTP that all is okay. We all love you sweet Beau!

We don't know anything about that water drinking issue and coughing, but we sure it is not anything serious. We want Beau to be 100% tip top!!!

That does sound like an exhausting visit to the vet but it also sounds like you are working on figuring out how to make sure Beau is comfortable and as healthy as he can be. We are keeping our paws crossed for all good results.

Sending Beau some Power of the Paw and Moose Magic (it's an Elkhound thing_) that he gets a clean bill of health and feels better soon !

CheerfulMonk said...

Oh! Yes, I miss you when you're not here. Good luck with feeling better...take care and try to enjoy life anyway.

Zoolatry said...

Paws together, JUNE. Fingers and toes and eyes crossed, Hu-Mom.
Getting old s.u.c.k.s. (all old peoples like us and youz)
Tho I figure June will outlive me, oughta make a plan for that ... sigh.
Here's to better days ahead.
Beautiful pic for this post.
Magnificent header.
Sorry to be M.I.A.
Love You All!

Chatty Crone said...

Oh how I hate that. Same thing here - we are getting old as well as Disco. He has a heart murmur now and is on a diet and today we are taking him in - his eye doesn't want to open as wide as the other one. Good luck.

Yes, being old is NOT fun. Cinnamon is 10 and is starting to feel her age, but still is pretty spry. She is the 4th heeler and she is doing well. I LOVE the new header and I see the header in your sidebar is gone! You fixed it! Yeah!

I've been trying to catch up since our trip up north, and just saw this. Prayers everything comes back clean, and it's just a natural part of aging. Hmmm, I feel a nap coming on...
