The bowl of ice cream I ate was very large! I was eating my feelings. I told my trainer. He said he was proud I was honest about what I ate as well as why. I had come home from work and my dog aka my baby wasn’t able to walk or stand very well. I didn’t leave the house that morning with him like that. So a quick phone call was made to the vet and we were on our way. I was in tears the whole way there. We had lost our female rottie in 2007 to cancer. All I could think was this was the same thing. Was I going to be coming home with my baby or not? When we go there he didn’t want to go back to the examination room. Almost like he knew something was very wrong. He never growled or bared his teeth as he was examined. They gave him pain meds and took him back for his xrays. Well we have good news. There are no obvious tumors or damage to his spine. His hips looked great. He does have arthritis in the one knee, but that wouldn’t have caused this issue. We of course can’t see if something is wrong with his spinal cord. We did bloodwork to make sure he was ok for possibly long term anti-inflammatory meds. So they sent us home with a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and muscle relaxers. So its a fun time in my house, he is not a good medicine taker. Lots of bribing going on. He is back to his crazy self. So he is feeling better. My only nagging concern is could it have been lymes disease. So that will be getting looked into later. Ever your Royal Purple Queen!
