Mom woke me up this am so I could take my antibiotics and NSAID. I had a hard time standing when she took me outside. But I ate some breakfast without a problem, and then went for a short walk. I was able to squat without falling over today, and walked 2 doors down. That's twice as far as yesterday! So that's encouraging. But then I started shaking hard so mom carried me home. I was better after she warmed me up. We'll see how this new medicine works. After my antibiotics are done we're going to try some glucosamine/chondroitin for pain.
I've lost 2 lbs in 3 months. That's a lot when you've gone from 14 to 12 lbs. I guess I've been eating less in general and the muscle mass in my back thighs and behind is pretty thin. Mom encourages me to walk a little every day though. Up until a couple of days ago, every day I was walking my 1/2 mile along with 2 more walks the length of our block. So this is a big change for me. Hopefully this will pass when the extreme cold goes away, which doesn't last long here in California. I've been living in my sweater. Good thing is, I didn't have to have a bath this week due to the temperature. There is always a silver lining!
Back to snoozing for now!
Keep warm pal and feel better !
aww,feel better sweetie! I love my "Happy Hips" treats,nummm,they are filled with glucos. and chon. bacon and cheese flavored!!!
We're sorry to hear you're not feeling well. We hope you feel better soon once those meds kick in. Bella has a sweater that mom's been putting on her during these cold days cuz she acts like she's freezing when outside. Glad you're staying warm in yours. Big hugs.
Hugs to keep you warm Georgie...hoping the new medicine helps with the pain, we love you pal!
