Today is my birthday! I'm so happy I'm five. I was so sick that I thought I would never see my fifth birthday! The past couple of years have been so rough, but the past few months I've been doing very well! I'm still fed a special diet around the clock, but that keeps me very healthy!

For my birthday I got a FITBARK! It is a fitness tracker for dogs. My mom is hoping it will help her monitor my health & well-being. I will post more about it in my diary soon, once we've used it for a bit. Hopefully the dogster fleas will cooperate!

Stay well everyone!


Almost Healed!

I'm almost well. My leg is unwrapped, but I am still wearing my ecollar. My leg still has raw skin. My fever is very slight still. I've been more alert, and I've been playing with a toy my mom bought me! I've also started wagging my tail again! I go to the vet on Thursday for a recheck! I will let you all know what they say! Take care! And remember next time you need an IV ask the vet to please check it periodically in case you get a bad reaction and infection like I did. Better safe than sorry. I don't want any other dogs or cats to go through this experience.


I've Been Really Sick!

I was stung or bitten by something in my backyard. My mom took me to the vet, but unfortunately while being treated with the IV, I then developed more complications from the IV. The vet office said I was moving around too much or biting the IV. My leg SWELLED to about three times its normal size. My paws and paw pads swelled as well. I couldn't put pressure on it. My leg turned black. I also developed a fever. That was about ten days ago. I've been to the vet almost every day since.

My fever is lower now. I still can't walk properly, but I can move my leg. I'm a tripod right now. My mom was worried that I wouldn't be able to use my leg ever, but I will. My leg swelling is almost reduced to normal now. The black dead skin is still there. Once it falls off, the vet thinks my leg will need to be wrapped. My appetite is improving, but I will only eat special food from the vet and baby food. I'm in better spirits now, responsive. For a few days I was just lying listlessly, facing a corner. I'm now able to sleep, too.

I tried to post a couple of pictures, but I received a message stating that I have reached my limit of 10 photos. Strange, because I'm a plus member.

Please take care every pup. Make certain you are restrained very well next time you are given an IV. This experience has not been fun.
