ONE MONTH POST AMPUTATION2

I can’t believe it has been one month already. Bailey is doing well so far.  He still has some issues with balance and doesn’t play as much.  He loved to play tug-a-war and fetch, but has not since his surgery.  Today was his first day that he played a little, but his attention span was […]

Back to normal2

Bailey is mostly back to his old self again – begging for food, monitoring the yard, protecting the house and making his nightly rounds before bedtime. He has tried to jump up on the couch more than once, although unsuccessful.  It stresses me Out.  I stop him as soon as I see what he is trying […]

Eating again5

Bailey has been eating fairly well since Sunday – hamburger meat did the trick (major treat in the vegetarian home).  He does seem to be sleeping an awful lot though.  I actually had to wake him up this morning.  He also seems to still have problems balancing – sometimes he sways; his back leg also […]

A drop better2

Bailey ate his regular dog food today when it was hand fed, but still refused treats.  When I got home from my overnight away he ate some of my daughter’s Harvest Nut Bar (she was trying to help and offered it to him) and a few little pieces of bread, but refused dinner.  We made […]

Chemo, chemo, chemo3

Bailey went to the vet this morning because he still had not eaten.  I just picked him up to bring him home.  The vet said his behavior (not eating, vomiting) is definitely from the chemo; his blood work looked good.  They gave him some IV fluid, an anti-nausia injunction and Cerenia.  He was happy to […]

Just sleep, sleep and sleep4

Bailey has not eaten at all today – no treats, nothing.  Getting a little nervous.  The vet wants to see him tomorrow if he doesn’t start eating.  He has been drinking and goes outside to soak up the sun and the light breeze, but then back to sleep.  He threw up once today, but it […]

Day three following chemo2

Today was not as great as the last two. Bailey actually refused some treats today.  He came back and got all but one within minutes.  This is not a common behavior.  Bailey lives for treats.  He also seemed a little more lethargic today.  I took him to work with me to keep an eye on […]

Super Dog continued – Week 3 post-op; 2nd day following chemo3

I am pretty sure my dog should be studied by the medical community.  Today was all about him wanting treats. If he was having any problems he sure did not show it.  I gave him a little bath, we ran around the yard, played  and he is now sound asleep in my bed.  I am […]

Super Dog4

So far so good.  Bailey, as always, was a trooper.  He handled chemo, so far, with the grace he has handled everything.  I watched him all day for signs of anaphalactic shock, a side effect I was not prepared for, and fortunately I found out I did not have to worry about once I picked […]

Day Before Chemotherapy4

Tomorrow is Bailey’s first day of chemo.  We are hoping for the best but anticipating the worst so we are prepared.  Fortunately, as I have posted earlier my vet is letting my other dog of 14 years go with Bailey to keep him company when he gets chemo. Not knowing what to expect after after […]
