And so we begin…

IMG_5387

My Zusher started her medicine yesterday afternoon to help keep her bottom dry. I have to get natural peanut butter around it, which, if you don’t know, is the only kind a dog should eat due to preservatives in the processed kind that can kill a dog. It took some getting used to, having peanut butter rather than liverwurst around a pill, but I think she is getting used to it a little.

I have mailed a copy of her lab work up to my buddy Kath in the city, so hopefully we can get a city vet’s read on the levels and see what she has to say. I called the lead vet in the practice that I take the girls to here and he’s due to call me Monday with his interpretation of the labs. On deck this week, also, is a second opinion appointment for my girl.

Although Zush may not be my “blood” child, I am praying she has my resilience and will fight like I did. I’ll be right where I am all along – right beside her.
