Arrival Story: One evening I was sitting outside and I saw a puppy crawl in my bushes.I went to go look. It was Lil girl. She was almost 10 pounds under weight and very sick and almost . It was very sad. That is her first picture that is up on her profile. My husband was at work so I took a and sent it to him. My friend and I took her to the Vet. She gave Spunky a 40-60 chance of surviving the weekend. I found out she also had a skin condition and a gene disorder. I took her home with all the instructions and medicines I was given. And I learned how to do her iv she needed once a day also. Long story short She is now taller than Casper, our other dog and approximately 46 pounds:)
Bio: The first picture is when we rescued her. She was -3-4 mnths old and only 8 pounds!
We thought that we would have to get spunky dipped for the rest of her life. When we found her, she was near death. To make a long story short she is the miracle that almost didn't happen.
After three years of dips and scrapes and baths(medicated) She was not getting any better. Her immune system was almost non existent.
We met some people on line that helped us with her diet. Oh it started out simple, salmon oil, Omega 3 she was holding her own but her skin was like leather and fur almost non existent. That is when we found out about the foods everything from fish to vegetables that help build up immune systems like hers and promote healthy skin and regrowth of hair.
We use the fish at least 3 times a week. steamed carrots and broccoli. I then lend the broccoli and carrots and blend/mix them with her sweet potato. The vitamin enriched foods give her ample fire power to help eat this disease down.
I will post more later, listing the foods and benefits. how to's and more.
I had a super furtastic birthday everyfur! Thank you for all your presents and well wishes. Not only am I older, I am healthier! Yup, mom can actually measure my fur now. And I have fur everywhere. No bald spots.
As I type this I am looking out at the snow but It is not fun like usual because it is so cold! On that note we hope all the pups are staying safe these hard weeks of winter.
About getting healthier, my diet has changed totally, and I am growing by leaps and bounds. Casper and I know eat fish, sweet potato and skinless mushed carrots and broccoli, and rice with turkey with our veggies.
We have both been on this diet for a month now and wowser do I look better and feel better. We also eat dog food but not as much.
I do not have to get dipped anymore(crossing paws it stays that way)
but I still take my antibiotics. My paws are almost healed up(they do not stay swelled) anymore. but I still get my paw baffs and my medicated baffs.
I want to thank everyfur for their love and prayers for me as they and not just the diet is working.
