Food and Cuddles

Maggie doesn't like to share. They are her toys, her food, her owners etc

Favorite Toy:
fuzzy sqeeky bone and ink pens! We had to replace our carpet because of the ink pens.

Favorite Food:
Pig Ears, chicken

Favorite Walk:
We take them out to a wooded trail area and walk for about 40 minutes every day.

Best Tricks:
Her favorite trick is to ring the bell for potty early in the morning and takes my spot in bed when I get up to let her out. Sneaky!

Arrival Story:
We went to dog days of Denton and she was at the Great Pyr rescue tent. Some gentleman had found her at a dog park and had been trying to find her owners for a month with no luck. He couldnt keep her so he was going to give her to the rescue if he couldnt find her an owner by the days end. Well he found her an owner, we took her home right then.

Maggie's Health

It's been 16 months since we saw the specialist which took xrays and sent us to get some bone/tendon imagery done to see if we can find the source of her limp. The imagery came back clean. They could not find anything other than what was on the xrays which is mild hip dysplasia.
I don't really know what caused her to limp but she has greatly improved. I had her on glucosamine and nsaids when she was in a lot of pain. I gave her the pain meds when needed, not daily.
I can't say the glucoseamine stopped the limping since I quit giving it to her, but none the less, she rarely limps anymore.

For the past year, I have seen her limp maybe once or twice. I still walk her every day to keep her strong and she did lose about 8 pounds. I am so happy she has not been in any pain the past year. I hope it remains this way.

We found out Maggie has mild to moderate hip dysplasia a few months ago. She has been on suppliments for 5 months now. She seems to be doing fine. I notice she will limp after laying down for a while as well as when the weather is cooler. She gets up on the bed less, but she doesn't normally sleep with us in the warmer months anyway. We meet with a specialist next week to discuss our options. We have her on a diet to get a few lbs off of her. We exercise her every day as well to keep her muscles strong. She's only 3 years old and the sweetest dog ever. She gives good cuddles too. I will do anything for my dogs and I don't want her in pain. I hope we can just stay on suppliments and weight loss for a while longer. I hate to have to do surgery but if it makes her better then we will do it. I have a lot of research to do because I want to know what to expect and it will also help us determine when to do surgery. She has been full of energy lately which is a good thing!
