A Happy Update About Boo Boo
I thought I would share Boo Boo’s progress with everyone. Boo Boo continues to be our little miracle, we no longer plan or think long term with Boo Boo, we take everyday for what it is another day to enjoy and love him. The Vets are not sure if Boo Boo has or does not have Addison’s when the test was done he had not been weaned off the prednisone long enough, he had received a lot of it when he was sick, we took him off for about two days and the Vet felt that was risky enough, as he might crash again. Boo Boo is being monitored by our regular Vet and the state vet hospital, so he is being treated as if he had the form of Addison’s that responds to prednisone alone, the reason is he has many other health issues and his age. He also gets supplements, he is still on KD because he is doing well on it, but one meal a day must have some high protein so usually this is cooked food or Wellness 95%.
Boo Boo has exceeded everyone expectations and caused himself some trouble. The prednisone makes him feel so good he put on his dancing shoes!!!!!! Yes, he tweaked his bad back and was in a great deal of pain, I was at wits end. Finally we found a way to put things right again, since he is very stubborn we make Yogi stop playing with him if it gets rough, he has a tempro pedic bed, and he gets very warm water massage on his back (we tried heat pads) for 10 mins three times a week, he loves it. What a difference, his back has become almost straight again!!! His coat has started coming back. One of the other pluses is he has a very severe flea allergy so with the prednisone the reaction lasts less days.
Since dogs live in the minute we are trying to make the minutes count. Here are some recent pictures of my naughty red boy.
Thanks everyone for your kind words and being here.
Robbie, Boo Boo, Yogi, and Misty's human.
Poohkey miss you, monkey.
