Hey Yall! I have been at the vet already today with Weezie. I just realized that she really isn't a "puppy" anymore, but an old lady. She will be 10 years old this May. Poor little thing! She has been sick throwing up and just acting like she is hurting and can't get comfortable. I slept on the couch last night so I watch out for her. Those of you who know Weezie know that she does not like to be held, does not like to sit on furniture with you and generally is happiest if nobody pays her any attention.
For the past couple of days all she wants is to lay on the couch and for me to hold her. So I took her into the vet today. She has a history of bladder stones and had surgery several years ago. After a thorough exam, he started gently pressing on her spine and she would tighten up. He feels like she has hurt her back. An x-ray showed she did have some stones and one in her kidney. She also has a bladder infection. But he didn't feel like that was causing her the most pain. He feels like the worst pain in coming from her back.
So he gave her a shot of steroids, a bottle of prednisone to start tomorrow, muscle relaxers and antibiotics. I took these pictures when I got home after I gave her the medicine. I think the muscle relaxers kicked in. The girl is out and snoring her heart out. Did you notice the collar she is wearing? A girls gotta wear some bling even when she doesn't feel good.
I guess I will go continue to do some cleaning out and throwing away. It is ashamed that I don't have some muscle relaxers to take with Weezie. That couch is big enough for us both!
