Day 352

Millie the pink nude is alive and well.

After more seizures after my post yesterday we thought the worst. We took her to the vet and she spent the day in "hospital" on anti-seizure medication and a drip to rehydrate her. She didn't seizure all day, and we brought her home last night with more medication, and we had a smooth night. So while she is still very wobbly on her feet, she is managing to get about. It seems she has (for some reason) developed some sort of epilepsy. Could be a brain tumor, could just be epilepsy for epilepsy sake. Who knows. But something neurological is going on and she will now be on medication to ensure quality of life.

We took Max to the vet yesterday too. His was scheduled. I noticed his eyes were a bit cloudy. Yep, they are cloudy all right. He has cataracts. He is going blind. We'll be making an appointment with the optomologist over the next few weeks and then he will need to go to Sydney for surgery. It's gonna cost about $1000 for each eye. But, hey, what are you gonna do? He's our dog. Our mate. A member of our family.

Aging dogs. They're bloody expensive!! But I guess that's what you sign up for when you taken them on board. It's all par for the course.

  2. I'm so glad that you CAN care for them. I know if cost was at all an issue, H would be very difficult to convince we needed to do something. Course, he might be softer about it now after dealing with our youngest...
