One of her bandages on her front leg, the other leg is shaved
Cleo is very determined the bandage should come off
After talking with Dr. T yesterday morning, he decided to let Cleo come home last night for some good loving from Momma. He said that she still has some delay in bringing her back foot back up when he pulls it behind her. It now takes her like 5 seconds vs. 15 seconds 2 days ago. She takes a little longer to get up from laying down and get her back feet planted. I just hope the oral pills (steroids) that she will get to take at home, will be able to do the same job as the intervenous ones were doing. The main reason he wants her to really come home is that she won’t eat for him or any of the staff. She won’t eat for me there either, and he really wanted to see how her tummy did with food. But he knows that I am very good at following orders and he will here from me no matter what tomorrow morning with a report. If I think there is any decline in her condition, from not get the meds interviously, then I will take her back. We hope to get her in next week to see the Chiropractor Vet to give her some adjustments.
Dr. T give us an official name for what she has “Wobble Syndrome”. Here is one link that explains it in greater detail. Cleo' has the 2nd vertebrae in her back out of alignment. http://petdoc.com/story/wobblers-syndrome-dogs
I want to thank all our blogville friends for all the healing vibes for Cleo. I was so overwhelmed with all the comments that we received. I actually set and read everyone to Cleo so she knew how much she is loved in Blogville. A big "THANK YOU" to Mango and Dexter for putting the word out that Cleo needed the POTP.
Sorry, I am just know getting this updated on her status. I worked on getting her settled when we got home, got her to eat about 3 tablespoons of food for me, gave her some quality back rubs, loving, etc then we all settled down for some sleep. Winston and Amiee are so excited to have their fur-sister home, we all got some good quality sleep last night. Oh, and when I went to go to bed last night guess where I found Cleo.........On The Bed snooring like crazy.....
In the meantime, Cleo will be getting lots of rest. No access to the doggie door all day long, walks, roughness, Basset 500. Should be fun, because as we all know that once the drugs are working they seem to forget about their pains and want nothing more to do than play.
