It’s been a bad week for Friday and I. It started Monday. Friday started pacing and panting about 4 PM Monday evening, and continued until early AM Tuesday. My Google-fu told me this was a case for the vet, so as so0n as the vet’s office opened Tuesday, I called for an emergency appointment. We went in about 9AM. She was still having some respiratory distress, then.
The vet took X-rays and thought she had a tumor in her trachea that was causing her distress. So we went home to wait for the radiologist report. She was still very clingy and obviously not feeling good. We didn’t get the report until Thursday, by which time she seemed better. The radiologist didn’t think it was a tumor, that’s the good news. The bad news is we don’t know what was causing the problem. Meanwhile, she is home, on some Benadryl since the vet thinks some of her breathing problem could be allergies. And some antibiotics for the halibut, I guess. Although her ears are yucky and she could probably use them.
Meanwhile, I got nothing done all week. Sort of hard to do anything with a 30 lb. dog on your lap. Can’t even knit. I hope to get back to knitting as she seems much better today, willing to go with me. Except I had to carry her to the vet’s office when I went to try to pay the bill. Unfortunately, the website lied to me about what time they closed. So I will go Monday.
Friday turned 13 on March 1st, so the time is coming for the inevitable of her crossing the rainbow bridge. Meanwhile, I have bought another months worth of doggie supplies, and we’ll hope for the best.
