The topic: Charlie update


Costco was out of the blood thinning meds on Wednesday, so Brian went back on Thursday. I decided to not give Charlie the pill until after eight on Friday morning. I wanted to make sure in case there was a bad reaction, we could race him down to the vet's office.

All went well with the first dose. Probably because he had no idea what was happening. The second dose was okay, Brian had to hold him and keep his arms down.

This morning was not so good. There were multiple spits of the pill from the mouth, and much drooling to go with it.

Luckily, the new pill guns showed up this morning. They're kind of big, but if my finger fits in his mouth, I'm pretty sure these will, too.

He's feeling better, he was actually out in the yard this afternoon for a short time. He hasn't gone outside in over a week. He wasn't out long, but he did go out.

Keep your fingers crossed for an easier pillling tomorrow morning.

I must look into a pill gun ... you’ve used it before? I’m curious to see if it works

I’ve had success in the past with pill guns, but not today. Charlie says “nope, nope, nope”.
