Pearl here. Mommy took me for my annual check-up and talked to the doctor about a limp I sometimes have. We learned a few years ago that my knees are kind of wonky - a puggie thing - but lately Mommy's noticed it's a little worse. The doctor said it needs to be taken care of and they recommended anti-inflammation medication. Mommy wasn't sure because drugs make her nervous, but then the doctor gave my legs a good feel and said that I've actually lost some muscle mass in the bad leg and that I need to fix that!
So we came home with some medication which Mommy wants to give me but is still a little nervous about. They took blood tests so that they have an idea of where I'm at today with my liver and stuff and then in a few weeks they'll check again to make sure the medication isn't hurting me. Mommy wishes there was another way but the vet said this was the best way to avoid me having further problems.
Other than that silly hind leg, I'm perfect - of course. And I'm thinking that maybe having a bum bad leg isn't so bad because I'm already getting special treatment today (extra treats anyone?) and lovely longer than usual belly rubs.
Well, I think I hear the treat bag again so bye for now!
