heads up...mosie is not well

Alison  ·  Apr. 10, 2007

she is filling up with fluid tonight. her chest was filling up earlier today, and i gave her another dose of lasix which helped to clear her out, but her abdomen is even fuller than it was before. i will call the vet tomorrow and see if we can tap her off tomorrow. but i will only do this once or twice, if it keeps coming back there is no point in doing it over and over. poor babe, she was having fun here!



I hope it makes her feel better, she has not had enough love & fun & swims & walks & pets & kisses & treats & scratches yet.


the tap was not successful, they tried three times and then gave up. the vet recommends euth fairly soon. hmmm, mosie is not done with the pond yet. she also suggested sswitching to tramodol which i will do and see if that makes mosie feel any better.


she is better this morning...note to self...lasix in the late evening means going outside to pee many times and someone has to get up and open the door.
