Dogs on Thursday - Baby's Home

Gracie is on the couch dozing took us over an hour to get home from the veterinary hospital. She is very relieved, as am I. We called Lehu and put her on speaker. Gracie LOVES Lehu. It is precious.

Anyway, we have 5 medications and a vitamin B12 shot as our discharge meds. And, special prescription canned dog food. The poor thing is on a mega dose of prednisone...

The pathology reports have not yet returned, but the doctor thinks this is Inflammatory Bowel Disease and that most dogs respond well to treatment. It is still possible that this is some kind of Cancer, but she is certainly looking and feeling much better. Cautious optimism.

I just put all the meds in pill boxes for morning and for evening. I put the B12 shots on the calendar and I'm going to just try and relax and enjoy my beloved pooch.


  1. Awww :) I'm sure she's very happy to be home with mom...

  2. Welcome Home Gracie! I know that your mommies will smother you with love and affections.....the other furry members, maybe....

  3. I'm so glad sweet Gracie is home! I'm sending positive vibes your way for an excellent pathology report!

  4. Glad to hear that she's home! I'll be hoping for some good news on those tests.

  5. Awe. I'm so happy to hear that Gracie is home!!

  6. Reading your posts is heartbreaking. It's so hard when our beloved fur babies are sick, there seem to be little we can do to help. Glad Gracie is home now, and I sincerely hope she will be on the mend very soon.

    Sending positive energy your way ...

  7. I'm so glad to hear that your baby is home and cancer free! That is good news. She sure looks tired in that photo, but glad to be home at the same time - sleeping on her own couch! g

  8. who knew dogs could get IBS??I bet she's feeling oodles better just being home. I'm glad she's doing better!
