    Hi everyone, thanks for asking. I haven't been on PT as much lately, so just now seeing your posts.

    He seems to have a good day then one that's not so good. But we think it's breaking up, he coughed a lot yesterday. He's lost a lot of strength, kind of wobbly on his feet, and has obviously lost weight. He's tripped and tumbled a couple times. I think it's a combo of being groggy & weak, and being in a new place he doesn't know his way around as well yet, I think with his vision problems, he just doesn't see the steps & things sometimes.

    I have to convince him to eat, though. I've given up on dry food for now. Tonight he ate some chicken and some ground beef (which he would only eat out of my hand, not out of the bowl). He will take treats if they are slathered with peanut butter. I've been wraping his pills with lunchmeat, but he's started refusing those too. I hate to pry his mouth open, but I have to make sure he takes his meds.

    But he' s a little more active in the evenings. He looks more alert, and we've walked short distances a few times. (like 1x around the house). I just brushed him, he seemed to really like that. He mostly stays in the kitchen on his blanket, in the kennel in the garage (I think he likes the cement pad, it stays cool) or goes into the living room & lays on Star's blanket. She watches him, but lets him go wherever he wants.

    The vet didn't say how long it would take to recover, he goes back in for a check-up x-ray next Friday. Keep paws crossed for a good report!

    Awwwe, poor Shermie. I was hoping you'd have a miracle and be better already.

    I know when i had p-monia even going out the back door and around to the front to get the mail was almost too much and I'd have to go right back to bed after that. (It drove me insane staying so inactive, but it's what helped me get better faster (than the previous time i had pmonia.) Going out to get the mail was the one luxury of "freedom" that i allowed myself... and i didn't even do that every day.)

    I'm sorry but the protective side of me was throwing up little red flags at the walking around for tiny walks bit. Maybe it's different for doggies. I'm hoping it is. I was like "Mister, tell your mum to keep you in bed and only let you out use go potty."

    I realllllly hope the vet has good news for you Sherman and c-s!!! *hugs* and *scritchies*

    Please, if your dog is arthritic look into getting it Elk Velvet Antler. Look up my posts on it, PM me, or look it up on a search engine; but please if you love your dog and want it to live many more years consider this option. I've seen so many posts on here about dogs needlessly suffering. I can't make a new post about EVA every time so this plea is going here. EVA also helps with other ailments such as anemia.

    Aw, Sherman, everyone here and on PT is praying for you.

    Pat, maybe you can switch and wrap the meds in peanut butter. Make a little ball with the pill inside.
    I've been BOO'd!!

    The short walks are the vets suggestion. He said it'll help clear it out if he can get moving a bit. Makes sense - the lymph system "pumps" through the action of our muscles. That's why even bed-ridden patients benefit from range of motion exercises. The walks are very short, just once around the house, or in front of the next two houses & back. I just follow as he sniffs along the grass.

    Yeah, I ws doing that until he quit eating them. I'll probably have to go back & forth between the meat & pb to keep him interested.

    Thanks for the prayers, he still needs them.
