so, yesterday's vet visit didn't go as i had hoped. bailey was diagnosed with heart disease. last week her pulse was so low, she almost had no pulse at all. she was definitely in the danger zone and could have had a heart attack in her sleep. with the pills he gave her friday, and the 2 shots she got, her heart rate came back up and yesterday doc was able to find a strong pulse right away. she had no symptoms of heart failure, just congestion and wheezing. i thought it was just a cold. it scares the bejeebers out of me to think how this would have turned out if i hadn't taken her in when i did. she must have a slew of guardian angels looking out for her.
so now we have heart medication (1/4 tab twice a day), along with her seizure medication (1/8 tab twice a day), and an anti-inflammatory (1/4 tab once a day). how do i get 1/8 of a tab? i have to crush it and then separate the powder into 8 little piles. oh, and i keep them on a covered plate so the powder doesn't get blown away.
until we meet again my friends-
