Good. Healthy. Stable.
Those. THOSE are words that his vet said today. Those are words that I have waited to hear.
The vet walked in and her first question to the tech was “what is his weight today?” And the tech’s reply was “12.2 pounds, same as last time!” “Good!” He hasn’t lost weight. He gained back what he did lose, and kept his weight up. He hasn’t thrown up nearly-daily. He hasn’t been lethargic. Changing his food worked.
Until I was driving us home tonight, I hadn’t realized how much stress this million-dollar-dog of mine has caused me over these past 9 weeks. He was throwing up daily. He was lethargic. He was miserable.
We will stay the course, and he will now be able to get treats - something that he couldn’t get over the past 9 weeks. (Aside from when I felt like an awful owner and gave him a couple.) He cost me over $1,000 over the past year, and he is worth every. single. penny.
Stay strong and healthy, my little love.
