glad to hear Calvin is feeling a bit better....wonder about giving him some probiotics or even just plain yogurt to help his GI system deal with the meds...if its ok with his doc of course...plain pumpkin might help...not pie mix, pure pumpkin...hugs from the wees.
So will you be flying back for her check-up?
no...it is really a drudge getting all the paper work for out of country travel...at this rate she will be 14 yrs old when her battery runs down...maybe by then they will be able to change the battery in EC...now if we did come back to Canada for some reason they will see her right away at the OVC without needing a referral...we have that in a letter ...
How cute! It looks like Izzy is in a little bitty cattle truck. She and her student are both adorable. So glad she has a spiffy prognosis. Sounds iike you are good to go!
Thanks...she would be rechecked in a few months again but we will be out of the country...
I didn't realize that there were pacemakers for dogs! Although I guess I shouldn't be surprised...our three legged Lab/Chessie has had a total hip replacement.
Actually there arent any pacemaker made specifically for dogs...they are all for humans....the companys, in Izzys case Meditronic, donate any pacemakers that have past the expiry date as they cannot resterilize them for humans...at one time they reused pacemakers that were removed from humans but they havent done that for some time..
A three legged doggie with an artificial hip...now thats impressive ! Glad he is doing well...
Izzy went back to the Uni of Guelph Veterinarian hospital last week for a recheck...her pacemaker is working great...8 yrs left on the battery and her Pulmonary hypertension is being managed with the Sildenafil..they were doing major renos at the hospital so we had to go into thru the cancer center..they use the wagons for stretchers and of course I couldn't resist a pic LOL..the other pic is her with one of the 4th yr students who renamed Izzy...Izzyadorable ...she was amazed at how good Izzy was having her pacer checked and the dopplers and EKG done...proud momma here LOL
Wow, how very exciting. I hope you will be posting pictures and stay in touch with your forum friends once you get settled.
