Good, bad, ugly

That’s the theme of yesterday’s vet visit for Sis. 

The good:  eye pressure is within normal limits and the eye looks great.

The bad:  Sissy is reacting to her kibble, and Dr. M doesn’t care for the brand I grabbed about a week ago.  So… back to the drawing board, and to the next-most convenient pet food store in town, for a different range of doesn’t have the long list of allergens within foods.

Symptoms:  VERY pink belly, extra ear activity (no signs of infection… just… more like real basset ears than usual for Sis), and very soft stools.  Hem.  Sorry, but I use these posts to track her progress – and lack of.

The ugly:  Sis didn’t feel well.  Remember the soap episode?  It wasn’t QUITE that bad yesterday, and no soap was ingested prior to travel.  It’s looking like girlfriend is having some motion sickness, and her friends at the vets office miss the spunky spitfire.  Oh, she’s still spitting … up.   Poor girl…

It’s hard to watch my normally full of herself DIVA act like a normal, reluctant dog at the vet.  Any brilliant ideas out there?

    […] I get to the heart of my post, Sissy’s friends might care that I have a vet visit report up on their blog.  The cliff notes version is that her eye is great and our kibble and allergens […]

    I don’t have any brilliant ideas, except more car rides with a payoff at the end which isn’t treats at the vet’s office. Dog park, trips to the socials, etc. Hope she bounces back quickly – nothing like a dog that’s lost her spunk. g

    The vet is scary when you aren’t feeling well. Sissy sounds like her innards are in turmoil. I don’t have any advice, just good thoughts. I know that you will figure it out. The eye news is good.

    is it allergies or could it be IBS? have you thought about doing the whole home cook thing? How about a vegetarian food for sissy?

    I love that picture!!!

    I recently learned some unsettling information about dog food labeling. It seems they can substitute and not change the labels.

    So very glad the eye pressure was good, but very sorry that the allergies are rearing (hah…did you get it?) their ugly heads again. Micro feels her pain on the reluctant-doggy-at-the-vet part. He went in for his annual today and I think that if he could have crawled inside my shirt, he would have.
