Yesterday was a long day Mr Sunshine had a work thing and so I ended up sorting some house stuff on my own. Was okay but it meant I did not get back to this thread until bedtime.

So Megs is much better, she still has to be carrried into the garden and does not want to walk on the concrete. She was playing with her big ball on the bark chippings barking her head off and enjoying life. The senior vet thinks Megs has collie eye anomaly, is in more pain from arthritis and it is affecting her ability to walk, she is also having neurological symptoms. Today we started her on Gabapentin and a supplement which supports better neurological function. The vet was really good and spent a lot of time on the phone explaining stuff to me, so it has been nothing like the situation we were in a couple of years when Tigga cat ended up being denied a good death by the vet at the other vet practise. The practise we are now with has wheelchair access and is disabledd friendly it is making such a difference. I am being properly included in making decisions about Meg's health car.

Megs is doing much better too the point she is back to being a nagging collie with a ball. I dont know whether Luka and megs have forgotten their training or become more stubborn with age but both are barking more. Megs did have a stomach upset and I just had to give her a shower luckily it is the morning and I have a bit of can do time. I had to put wellies on and sit on the shower stool trying not to get the dirty mess on me. I guess some able bodied people would find it easier to do such tasks. Then again if I was working there would have been megs to sort out before i got work clothes on and caught the bus to work.

It's good to hear that Megs is on the mend. Here's hoping for no more stomach upsets and showers!  >hugs< >dog<


Would I win a prize for World's Worst Pun if I asked if the upset stomach was a case of the collie-wobbles?
