|Took Sabs for a check up today.
To quote the vet "you couldn't convince me to euthanize this dog"
She gave her a body condition score of 3. Stated that she is a bit overweight for a Shepherd, but not overweight for a dog. 84 lbs, yay. Not 'grossly obese' so we will continue working on it as we have been.
The wobbling is neurological, not due to her hips. She has some pain in her hips when extended. Basically her brain doesn't know where her feet are. And the same thing is probably causing the confusion. She said its not cognitive disorder as Sabi was really alert and focused.
She has some inflammation in her gums which we can deal with and the growth on her shoulder is some kind of wart not another cyst.
No abdominal tenderness, good heart rate, no murmur, clear lungs.
She says we get to stay together for a while yet. Just wanted to tell someone 'cause I'm sooooo happy.
