Schatzi & Oskar both had appointments with the Dawgtor today...Oskar is about the same. He can stand..but is very slow to respond to having his back feet flipped under (actually, not much response)...but the good news is that he is no worse. And this just might be as good as he gets...which is fine with us, our concern is for his quality of life & as long as he has no pain..we are pleased with his progress. Crate rest will continue for a few more weeks, then we will slowly allow him access to the rest of the house (no stairs). And pray no discs rupture.
He also has an infection in both ears & one anal gland...so antibiotics & ear drops were prescribed. He underwent blood & urine tests, as well. So, all in all..we are staying the course.
Schatzi (aka Miss Drama Queen) underwent her annual check up....with three attempts to stay on the scale for a weigh in! Her loss of eyesight is progressing, but not at an alarming rate...and there really isn't anything that needs to be done. We will have her teeth checked again in the fall. She got away unscathed!
