    Default Maxx at the Vets

    Well tonight we had to have a trip to see Uncle James for a check up and some more Frusemide. It seems that Maxx's SM has worsened a bit so we've had to up his Frusemide but on the positive side, he's in otherwise A1 tip top health and Uncle James said his heart sounds wonderful

    The bad news is that Charlie has got to start his injections in two weeks time and they cost £120 per vial. The good news is that he's insured for about £5000 per condition a year & we are covered - phewwwwwwwwwwwww

    The other good news is that James had suggested changing his food to Butchers Tripe mix as he's got a storage mite allergy. I've been doing this over the last few days and the dreadful smell that was coming from his mouth and skin seems to have all but disappeared!

    The weirdest thing is that this is a dog who is so darned fussy that he will sit and wait and watch Maxx eat his dinner and then look at his own as if to say - let him have it, it's not to my tastes but he's wolfed down the Butchers and even barked (unsuccessfully) for more! Even Maxx who would never eat tinned dog food has tried a tiny bit and kept licking his empty dish clean too - obviously something yummy (to them, not me ) in that food.

    I hope Maxx is feeling better fast--- we seem to have a bunch of cavaliers that are feeling poorly.
    I have added occasional tripe for my dogs health-- but I can't stand the SMELL.

    Thanks Sandy,

    I hope so too. At least my baby isn't as poorly as some of the other little angels on here. I was worried because he was scratching his ears and butt scooting - not his usual SM symptoms. James gave him a really thorough check over and said his glands were empty and his ears were really clean so to try upping the Frusemide for a few days and see if it worked.

    I gave him 30mg tonight instead of 20mg and I'm going to see how he is tomorrow - it usually works PDQ!

    I'm just fed up of seeing my two suffering. Charlie's been on medication for his allergies since what seems like forever now

    How are all of your babies?

    Donna - Hope the upping the dosage helps Maxx. And changing the food helps Charlie. It so hard when our babies don't feel up to snuff.

    Oh, Maxxy darling, I hope your extra frusemide helps you.

    Pleased Charlie seems to be getting on with his Butcher's Tripe, but poor thing having all those injections.

    Hugs and kisses to them both.

    Donna, I hope your boys are both feeling better soon. Thank goodness you have insurance, and that Charlie likes his new food. Please give your pups extra hugs from me and my gang.
