Default *sigh* here we go again

God i really hope this isn't it. This poor dog.

Som' of you might have seen Critters thread about her peeing all the time. So i made an apointment (again) to have her checked. This time armed with more knowlegde.

Her appointment is the day after xmas... It was my soonest day off.

Here's the kicker. She flipped over yesterday and while i was petting her i found three small lumps on her belly right by one of her nipples. They are about the size of peas and were not there a week ago.

I have no clue (im trying not to think about it) of what they could be. I guess we find out on Friday.

Eeeesh... good luck, that doesn't sound good. I understand your pain, having a pet that pees constantly is not fun. Good luck, and keep us updated!

Crios - go to a health food store and pick up some Essiac tea, brew it (I let it steep overnight) and get about a quarter to a third cup down her once a day, or split it and do it twice a day, preferably on an empty stomach. You can give it to her in unsalted chicken broth. Be sure to use filtered water when you brew it, not straight tap water.

No guarantees it will work, but I've seen it do some AMAZING things in a hurry.

So turns out my dog has OCD and the water drinking is an obsession.


The lump is probably nothing and i should just watch it for now..


*sigh* I feel better.
