    Oh no Nicki, what a difficult time for you. If only this air pressure would settle down!

    Hopefully the steroids will start to have a positive effect on her soon. It must be so hard to keep your chin up, but keep thinking positive thoughts, I'm sure Kayleigh will get through this and bounce back soon.

    Both times Misty has started new steroid course she developed urine infections soon after, that needed treated(coincidence?).

    Thank you both - and for the lovely PM Joyce

    Paula that is interesting - although poor Misty that's not very pleasant. - one of the side effects of the steroids as I said is the excessive thirst and urinating, which you would think would flush the bladder?

    This afternoon she just wet on the sofa where she was lying had to wash her.

    When Oz got sprayed by the skunk last week, he screamed in pain (he got sprayed in the eyes and face). I cannot imagine having an SM/CM dog who regularly screamed in pain. Luckily Riley, my SM dog, has never screamed in pain. I would be beside myself trying to figure out how to help her - like you are doing with Kayleigh now Nicki. Just hearing Oz's agonizing screams that day was enough to make me understand how that is no quality of life for a dog who feels that on a regular basis, or even on an irregular basis but is miserable in between. I do hope that Kayleigh bounces back and lives a long happier life with you.

    Update on Kayleigh, she's much the same, After grooming she has a panting episode [pain, doesn't want to be near anyone] for about 20 minutes, so only doing it alternate days and trying not to pull her around too much. If this continues then I will speak to the vet about sedating her and having her coat clipped off.


    Defintely not too hot, we live in an old stone cottage and the highest indoor temperature has been 22C!

    I have a call in to the vet to see if there is anything else we can try - she has been on the steroids for 6 days so I would have expected to see an improvement by now.


    Thank you for your kind posts and for the lovely PMs - unforutnatley I have just started some new medication and it's making me feel a bit rough so sorry for not replying yet or being around very much.
