I had to go to the vet today for a few things but mostly for my ear. Turns out even though I am on antibiotics, my ear infection came back. So now I have another medication that goes directly in the ear every day. My motto is anything that turns into a treat is OK by me.
I am also on a new pain medication for my legs since they have been bothering me a lot lately. They have been very sore and I have been chewing and licking at them lately. Mom and the vet are not sure if it is anxiety or arthritis but hope the Tramadol will ease the symptoms.
Lastly, the cancer does not appear to be spreading but it is certainly causing havoc to my body. My system is so busy fighting the cancer it isn't doing much else. I lost another pound even with an increase of food and mom says my skull is nothing more than skin over bone. The vet says the body is compensating for fighting the cancer by taking all the muscle away. I still look handsome just skinny and a bit splotchy. My skin healed but my hair isn't really growing back. Also, my bad breath isn't going anywhere. There is no reason for it except that the body can't deal with everything that is going on and the bacteria isn't being fought off. So, unfortunately it is a problem that won't resolve. Mom is going to buy some more dental chews though and hope it helps a little.
Overall, the vet was pleased that I looked pretty good and still have a great appetite. She also gave me lots of treats. It's all the eyes guys, you have to master the LOOK!
Hope everyone is doing well. I'm hanging in there
