Wordless Wednesday: Watch, Mom!

Getting down on the dock ramp is easy, but I still won’t get into the pool. I see a lesson coming up!

Update on Toby: His treatment of Cushing’s Disease with the drug Lysodren is a fine balancing act of trying to bring his cortisol levels down to normal. He responded to just a few days of treatment with a drop a bit too far and became lethargic and had no appetite. We are in daily contact with the vet specialist, who has been closely monitoring him. We started Toby on prednisone last night and it seems to be working. It’ll be some back and forth with the drugs, but, with some tinkering, we will eventually achieve a workable level.

Of course, Sir Pantsalot would tell you the dragon was a bit fearsome and almost won the first round. But our brave knight conferred with his special vet and has a new secret weapon. A magic powder was added to his sword and he, along with his sidekick Sage, are returning for another round. VICTORY WILL BE HAD!

  1. Keep up the fight Sir Pantsalot! I ‘m cheering for you. I can loan you my armored collar if that will help . It has a few dents in it, but it’s still good for fighting certain types of dragons ( Histiocytoma dragons) Keep up the good fight, valiant knight!

  2. Sage, we know you will conquer that ramp and be swimming in no time.

    We know what you are going through with Toby. We did the same with Dakota, all the crashing, the blood work, the tinkering with the dosage, the prednisone. It takes time and patience, and it is so draining – we understand and send you good thoughts. Once you find the right balance, it will be so good. Sadly for us, Dakota could not tolerate the lysodren, very rare occurrence.
