i am not finished with the bad news here yet tonight...

tess is having a bad time, she cannot get up on her own and is pretty distressed..something is really bugging her in her nether regions but when i try to look closely underneath and behind to see if there is something obvious there, she is determined to bite. i gave her a big dose of tramadol and will give it a chance to kick in before i try again.
abbey has just had her 6th known seizure in the past 24 hours. i called the vet and have doubled her phenobarb dose and hope that this will help to calm her seizure activity but it may take a few days. if she is still seizuring by tomorrow morning i will drop her off at the vets on my way into work. the vet said if she hits a crises tonight, she will meet me at the clinic at any time.
i think it will be a long and unhappy night.
on a more minor note...crash has a massive hot spot starting in his lower flank/groin...probably too much pond time over the weekend. i cleaned it up and started him on antibiotics. hopefully since i caught it quick, it will clear up really soon too.
Brenda, Yoda will be fine. He picked up a bug, at his age it really did a number on his tummy. Got some medicine, so no medicam & bland food for a while. Might be a good time to try Glucosamine for his old sore bones. I love those old bones!!!
