Hi everyone, I feel so much better today. I still limp and have a lot of trouble walking but mom and I went to the vets today. Mom didn’t even try and get me in my carrier but used Shoko’s box carrier where she could just place me in the box and shut the lid. Mom could carry me just great. I said nothing on the way to the vets, even though I was really scared. Dr. V and mom chattered back and forth but Dr. V treated me like a princess so I was a happy girl. It turns out that I also have arthritis in my hip and the base of my tail. The vet thought the idea of hyaluronic acid (HA) would definitely help my other joints but there was also damage to my elbow joints, she was unsure if HA would help this. We also decided on using the Medicam in three-day doses a week and start with a dose for 5 days. She said using it everyday would be pretty hard on my kidneys and I seemed the sensitive sort anyway. This is true I have several health problems. At the end of the exam I got blood sucked out of my body. Oh my, I sound like Shoko. I’ve been hanging around with her too much. Then we went home. First mom asked for some treats for me. The vet gives them out free. We snagged some treats and left. When we got in the car mom undid the top of the box carrier. I was laying on top of the purple towel like Lady Muckaty Muck. I didn’t want to move especially with these treats. When we got home mom gave me the Medicam and we took off for a stroll up the street. So many things to see! I met two boxers and a bulldog. They were very quiet and polite. It was a good day. Today is also our Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by Ellen of 15 And Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader. Our Friendly Friday Fill-ins for week 21.
