All seems to be going well. Her pulse is good, he couldn’t feel any lumps (other than the old and new fatty deposits), and her gums, paws, and tongue were all good and pink during the visit. He confirmed that giving her Yunnan when she has issues and stopping after the episode has passed is the best course of action. Otherwise, effectiveness of the drug may diminish.
He told us that everything relating to her diet was fine but that we might need to add some trace minerals if the half cup of kibble we include with each meal does not have any. We checked the Orijen label and it does add some vitamins and minerals. We will check with him tomorrow to make sure they are enough. He also said cooked food was good as he didn’t want to take a chance with salmonella or any other issues that may come with uncooked meat.
She has beaten the odds so far, and we cherish every day. I read so many sad stories every day of others that are not as fortunate. It truly is heartbreaking. We know that day will come for us as well. But in the meantime, we give her many kisses a day and try to make every day special for her and us. Every day truly is a blessing.
