Vent: Rook's right rear leg is having a ton of issues and I am 95% sure we need to go with amputation at this point, which further complicates my efforts to get her in a custom mobility cart. The vet warned me she'd be likely to struggle with pressure ulcers eventually, but wound care is exhausting. There's hardly any happy medium that allows everything to work (bandages too tight vs too lose on an active dog that eats everything... like bandages.) I found a supplement plan that finally gets her stool soft, but it gives her gross gas.
Vent: Zoe's corneal ulcer is refusing to heal properly, and if it's not better at the next expensive check-up she has to get sedated and have a grid scratched onto her eye and possibly have her third eyelid sewn over as a patch and be in a cone for 2-3 weeks. I am giving her drops every two hours when I am awake. Oh, and today she decided the Ichon shots hurt.
Then peanut butter and it was all better.
Awesome stuff I try to focus on: I think the Ichon is helping Zoe, and Rook did AMAZING at the ORT. Now if only there weren't a rule change about dogs in diapers that prevents her from ever competing. Oh wait, this part is the good news. My dogs are happy. Who needs to pay bills or eat food?
