I didn’t perk up after Little Elvis and Miney visited…I stayed sleepy and down in the mouth.
I may or may not have had a small accident in the kitchen in the middle of the night…Far Side may have been
dead to the world sleeping real soundly and didn’t wake up for me….so if I did have an accident it is all her fault. For the record I have not had an accident since I was a puppy…oh there was that time in Indianna that Joe and Sue forgave me for….anyways…
Went to the Vet and as elderly dogs do I have multiple problems. It sucks to get old at least that is what Far Side says.
After the red and yellow tests… blood and pee work was done…I have a bladder infection, reduced kidney function but not alarming for my age, I am anemic no doubt from that bleeding hemorrhoid or a small bleed someplace else, (this vet verified that it is a hemorrhoid), and my liver function is all whacky…lots of bilirubin stuck in my liver.
I have three different medications to take twice a day. The Vet says I should feel better by Tuesday or I should come see her again…oh and I lost 12 pounds.
Far Side hides all the pills in pieces of cheese, she says she hopes I don’t get pancretitis and puke all over in copius amounts. She walks me in the middle of the night because I have to pee often.
The Vet says my heart and lungs sound great for an old Border Collie. Far Side sighed and said “I suppose it is highly unlikely that he will just sleep away some night?” The reply was “No probably not.”
