Such Good News!!!


This is Oskar...happy...



So, we got the results from Oskar's urine tests...and such great news...his levels are almost normal. I won't get into all the protein ratio, etc., but Dr. Condon was pleased & surprised at how well the medication is working on Oskar's kidneys...near normal levels!! Happy, happy, happy...

We will continue his meds, as they are working....and re-test in another six months! We are also going to cut back on Metacam....rather than give nightly...we will drop down to every other night & see if he is okay with that. (he takes it as a pain reliever & anti-inflammatory for his back). If he does well...and continues to show no signs of pain or discomfort...maybe sometime in the future he can stop taking it altogether (it can be hard on their stomach & kidneys). But we couldn't have him in pain...so we felt the risk was worth the reward.

For being 13 1/2 years old...Oskar is doing really, really great. With proper veterinary care & good care at home...is is thriving. Still a tad on the cranky side...but thriving!

And....bestest news of all...his Nani is coming to visit him!!

We Have A New Neighbour....

And her name is Shelby...a "doxie" by proxie...



Isn't she pretty? And only 6 months old! Her new family lost their beloved Holly about three years ago..so they've been waiting a long time to welcome Shelby. They adopted her (yay!!) from the humane society...we cannot imagine why someone gave her away...but thankfully to the shelter...where she would be cared for til the "right" family came along! She was only at the shelter for a week...and now has a wonderful home & family to love her.

Did we say she is gorgeous? The prettiest brownish-orange eyes..so to Shelby...we say "Welcome"!!
