Trudy's Diary

Way too long

Wow so I just noticed there haven't been any diary entries for me in 4 years. What's up with that. A lot has happened in the last 4 years. I got a new brother who adores me, my unkie who I adore moved out, I got diagnosed with something interesting called: Symmetrical Lupoid Onychodystrophy. SLO is what we call it. SLO is an autoimmune disease of dogs which can cause severe claw problems in otherwise apparently healthy dogs. It is characterised by the loss of claws from more than one paw - eventually all claws may be lost. Other symptoms may include: receding quicks, secondary infection (often with a strong smell), claw splitting (usually down the back of the claw), pain, distorted/twisted claws and lameness.

So overall, I'm doing okay and I have my nails growing back. I hated the medication I was taking...doxycycline and niacinamide. The niacinamide made me sick. I also have to take fish oil for the rest of my life.

Other than that I'm doing pretty darn good for an 10 year, going on 11 year beagle! Still love my walks and like to play.
