Well my lil cuddle bug is offically off antibiotics, he still has some of that surca-something liquid to coat his tummy, and some bene-bac (probitic paste) .
So I am trying to get a real reading of where we are at before adding something the mix.
I am going to get some of the slippery elm to have on hand.
He was urping and rancid burping last night, and I can smell it on occassion in his crate room.
His crate is soaked every night (i have down papers-he eats any fabric I put in there), I dont know what is puke, upchuck , or urine. it seems to be urine lately, I dont know why he isnt holding it. he seems ABLE to, but I think in the morning as I begin to shuffle dogs , (they all go out one at a time) he gets impatient and piddles...
I havent called the Reiki lady yet..and am getting ready to go on an almost weeks vacation..oh egads.. (last real vacation was 4 years ago)
I am panicked about leaving, leaving him, he is going to a home where there wont be any other dogs, but the person isnt dog "savy" ..but my babysitters who usually take my dogs, well, the guy panics Woody, he is too "tough" on him and I dont think Woody can take the stress right now.
(this is the same person who dropped him off at the vet last and Woody melted down all day)
I dont usually condone catering to a dogs emotions. But this time I am.
So we will see how everyone fares, while I am gone. If he totally looses it , then maybe we will have some answers on that spectrum.
With me he is still super funny, cuddly, the other day he lept up, flopped upside down beside me, like a curly bug.. on his back, head flopped over the couch, back feet folded over his head.. it was seriously hilarous.
And then slept just like that..
He seems to be able to bond to me.. which of course worries me he is one of those "one people dogs" ...not good, he can not stay.
His medicals.. I dont know..its still which came first or how to get his anxiety to a level to accept life if this is the real cause.
I still have a gut feeling , that a dog that switches personality so 100 % even as it matures, that something just isnt right.
Guess I will have to re evaulate when I get back from Vacation in April , maybe take him to my other vet at the critter hospital if I can drum up the funds myself., for some further testing.
I tell people all the time "Follow your gut" but does one's heart sometimes block the true gut feelings?? ?
So for now, he is happy , and doing "ok"
