Re: PA: Needs a FLYBALL home for this girl! (Staffie type mi

Haven't seen her on facebook except for the volunteers that know her. She was shared on Stafford Rescue USA's page - they are sending someone down on Thursday to see her. Marisa, the trainer that was working with her, visited her yesterday. Apparently she's now missing part of her ear :( What? What...

Re: Happy Tail

Oh man, Amie. I logged in to read the depressing posts I knew were coming down the pipe, and came across this thread. I had to skip ahead to the end to make sure he was ok then went back and read the rest of the story - who knew happy tail could kill you! Sounds awful - much love to your whole famil...

Re: Cracked teeth from raw bones!

Sadie cracked a tooth on a rib bone. Since those are now banned and i never give femurs, she gets her bones ground up with the meat. She can safely do chicken/duck/turkey necks and wings.

Re: Wallace and Roo are having troubles...

I've been following the saga on facebook as well. Just know you and your pup are in our thoughts. Cancer sucks. I hope his time left with you is comfortable and happy.

Re: Sadie is sick, Round 2

I spoke too soon. Vet called and said I get to bring her home! She thinks a bug may have bit her on one of her walks out because of the timing and isolated location, no more fever, etc. It's much improved and she is apparently exploding with energy (aka normal). I don't have time to get her before w...

Re: Sadie is sick, Round 2

I have nothing to report right now. She's stable and they will call me back after rounds to give me a plan for the day.

Sadie is sick, Round 2

Well here we go again Yesterday Sadie was her normal crazy, ball obsessive self, running around like a loon on crack. That is normal. By the evening time she was a lethargic lump. She felt warm to me but I didn't have a thermometer to verify. Next morning she was the same. I did a couple of tests. H...

Re: Sadie isn't well

Yeah her voice change is recent, nearly 3 months after surgery.

Re: Sadie isn't well

er, not staples. Stitches. I doubt she has metal staples left in her abdomen.

Re: Sadie isn't well

How long should I expect to feel the staples beneath her skin?

Re: Sadie's voice has changed

It went fine, thanks for asking. I showed the vet the video I made and she agreed, it's a bit of a difference. Lymph nodes feel fine, and Sadie's anatomy makes evaluating the larynx impossible. She sent us home with some anti-inflammatories. We're working with the assumption that she probably has la...

Re: Sadie's voice has changed

Yeah, I admit it is easier on the ears. I would miss her unique shrill chatter through, oddly enough. I have an appt on Wednesday to make sure something bad isn't going on with her vocal cords.

Re: Sadie's voice has changed

Someone asked for a non-facebook video so I figured I'd share that one, too.

Re: Sadie's voice has changed

Did this change happen drastically? Like, normal when you went to bed and woke up with another dog's voice?

Re: Sadie's voice has changed

We also hear some hoarseness in her voice. She hasn't done anything unusual with her voice. I do not think the hoarseness is the cause of the voice drop. The voice dropped deeper, and is now going hoarse. I think she needs to go to the vet.
