Thanks Marianne, we really hope it does too.
Oh no Dave, I was so happy Shelby was getting better, this is just awful. Everything crossed Kito gets better with the new diet. Sending hugs to you, V and all the pups.
Thank you, Ellen. Much appreciated.
Gosh darn it! So sad to hear this, hoping for the best recovery and outcome possible (or even never before seen!), what a huggable pup
I’m so sorry Dave, fingers crossed that the diet works
He actually wanted more, but this is where we need to make sure to keep him to the diet specifics, especially since it’s a low protein diet, which can easily be over done which wouldn’t be good for him.
Here is that Low Protein/High Fat - Kidney Care Recipe I mentioned that our Vet’s office gave us for Kito. … I sincerely hope that no one here ever needs it, but if so, I hope it’s indeed useful.
Someone ate too many scraps at thanksgiving dinner
Nothing more beautiful than a shepherd. Love them.
That is one satisfied dog!
So much love!
Posted this in my thread, but wanted to update here too since I posted back when Shelby had her last ACL surgery. … So quick update on Shelby (Also known as ‘Tank’ as of late) … Apparently, she’s more fitting to our nick-name of Big Girl, since out of the 14 lbs. her brother Keto lost recently with his diagnosis of Kidney Failure, Shelby apparently found 13 of them herself! She now weighs 87 lbs.! (But she’s had a lot of down time during and recouping from her surgeries, so this is understandable. … But she’s getting around pretty good nowadays and will be walked much more after Winter’s over. We plan to have her moving around much more & getting in more exercise come Spring when the weather gets better. - Other then that, she’s doing fine.
Here’s a few images of her with V loving up on her while waiting in the Vet’s office…
look at that face!!! so sweet. She is a tank…a pretty tank! Glad to hear she is doing better
