Tuesday Vet Visit Again

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Mom took me to the vetman again! Boy, she must think I really like this guy, cuz she sure takes me there a lot lately. They stole some of my blood, stuck me with a needle and said they were replacing it with something called Adequan. I don’t believe them though. Then they gave me another shot that made me really, really sleepy. The next thing I knew I was waking up and Mom was back to get me.

We found out that the Legg Calve Perthes disease is gone! Yay!!!! That is the good news. I always like good news……

The bad news is that every joint in all 3 of my legs is riddled with Arthur Itis. I don’t know who this guy is, but I want him to leave and leave now! I also have what they called bone spurs. I’m not a horse, I’m a dog! Why do I need spurs? Then they said I have hip dysplasia in my right hip, that’s the one with the joint.

Now I’ve been on Duralactin, Rimadyl and now had 2 Adequan shots. I don’t even feel like walking lately. Today (Wed.) I feel like a dog…….

  1. Oh Chuy, we love you so much, I remember meeting you so long ago on MS! LOL Those were the days hu?? Remember making silly glitter graphics and posting them on peoples pages?? We are saddened, admittedly. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you for your friendship,

    Mark, (an nuk an timber an isis)

  2. Goodness gracious Chuy!! You sure had a crazy day at the Vet! But hey, you got some good news…NO MORE CALVE DISEASE!!! Now, if we can just get rid of that Arthur Itis guy and get those spurs back to horses!!

    I hope some of the stuff you are doing to rid you of Arthur Itis works!! I think the Adequan injections take a bit of time to kick in. Maybe acupuncture would help???

    Keep us updated, okay? You know we are all madly in love with you and cheering wildly for you!!

    Love and hugs

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  3. PS Your Mom did NOT post a picture in your blog today!!! That is NOT acceptable!! You go get her right now and tell her we must ALWAYS have pictures of your handsome self!! 🙂
