Hi all! Mama said you were concerned about me, so I wanted to let you know I’m stabilized on my insulin & new special diet. The bladder stones are gone, the stitches out, and Mama & Daddy will spend $70 a month from now on for my new kibble. No more carrots or doggie treats, but that’s ok. I’m back to running around all happy and goofy on the farm, but still shy about having my picture taken. I’m even barking at my shadow again – Mama hasn’t heard me bark much through the illness, so she seems happy about that. See how Schnauzer-esque I am?
Thanks for stopping by!

Winnie’s New Donut

Originally posted on Schnauzer Dog Blog:

Winnie went to his vet check today, as a follow-up to his ER visit last night. They took pity on our duct tape modification of the cone collar (photo #2), and gave him an inflatable collar (photo #1). Can you hear him snoring? Now he is actually getting the rest he needs to heal! (Secretly, I think one of these would be comfy for my own neck!) The vet said he will be fine, the stitches seeping is normal, and it will do this for 3-5 more days. As long as he is peeing (and he is), he should be fine. We go back in 4 days for a recheck.

Winnie’s Surgery: A Success!

Quiller:

Here’s an update on my baby!

Three bladder stones and a cyst on the cheek removed successfully! He was a “model patient” at the vet hospital. Overnight was painful for him, but today he is eating so we are happy with his progress. Because he didn’t eat last night, he didn’t get his insulin last night, either, which had us worried. We are monitoring him closely and can’t wait for 14 days of cone-wearing to fly by.

Winnie Health Update: BETTER!

Here’s is an update on my baby’s health!

Winnie had his two-week follow up to check his blood sugars since being diagnosed with diabetes. He has gained almost a pound and isn’t as lethargic. But his sugar level was still too high at 340, so they increased his units of insulin from 6 to 7. My lucky number is 7, and apparently it’s Winnie’s, too! He is bouncing and running and playing with Sadie like old times. Thank goodness!! Now his bladder stone surgery is scheduled for Thursday. I know he will feel so much better once those 3 stones are removed!

Double Health Diagnosis Received on my Winnie

Winston hasn’t been feeling well, so we wanted him to get seen by the vet before this long Memorial Day weekend. He has been on phenobarbital for seizures for 3 years now. He hasn’t had any seizures since then, as far as we know, but then… he scared us this past week and we thought he may have had one. Besides that, he has lost several pounds within just a few weeks, and seemed a bit lethargic.

The vet seemed concerned, so he ordered an in-house blood test, rather than sending it out and waiting until Tuesday after the Holiday to get results. THANK GOODNESS! We waited in the waiting room for about 20 minutes, and then he called us back into the room, where he had an X-Ray film nearby. He said Winston has diabetes. Whaaat… normal blood sugar levels in a dog should be around 60 – Winnie’s…
