Well, Chandler is doing fine. The Advantage and the worm pill obviously did the trick. He’s not licking his butt and he’s back to playing and being lovable. I’m glad that was an easy fix.
Ciara, on the other hand, has some issues best addressed by the vet. There’s something doing with her ears. They’re very itchy and when I put a Q-tip in one the other day, some cheesy looking crud was on it. So, it’s not mites (which would be black crud), but maybe some sort of infection. Thinking back to her early days here, that worries me a little.
I started giving her amoxi on Tuesday night and when I gave her the pill last night, I noticed how horrible her teeth are. There’s no question that this little girl needs some dental work.
Then there’s the matter of the rapid moving eyes. I kind of think she’s done this all along, just not as pronounced as it is now. Whatever, I’d like the vet to look at this.
And I’d like him to check out her legs, the ones that had been weak, to see if there’s anything ongoing.
Then we come to her IBD. I don’t know if IBD ever goes away completely or if she just had the symptoms, but I’ve cut way back on the prednisone she was getting (gradually, though) and she’s pooping nicely and without the interference of the steroid, her cold symptoms have finally gone away. She’ll most likely need to have a blood test or something to make sure that she can go off of meds.
I’ll call to make an appointment this morning. I don’t really want to take her today, though, I was gone shopping all day yesterday and I like to have a day to regroup. *lol*
