Finally cooling off

Yesterday it finally cooled off for a bit. Mom and dad left with Starr. I guess they took her to the V-E-T. Starr gets so scared going there she shakes like a leaf. Anyhoo...they just had to have her blood work rechecked. She has bad arthritis and they wanted to retest her blood work to see if they can give her a stronger drug. Her liver enzymes are still elevated so they don't feel comfortable putting her on a stronger medication right now. They are leaving her on her pain pills and said that they can do an ultrasound of her liver to see what is going on. Mom also bought Starr a BIG jar of some kind of soft chews that are all natural and supposed to help with the joints as well. Kind of like the Glucosamine pills but these are supposed to be a bit stronger and better.

After all of that mom and dad came home and packed up Bokeh and I. They took us to the park to let Bokeh practice some of his distance throws. He did really good at practice today. I even got to play disc with mom. I like to play with mom. :)

  1. Poor Starr! Our Great Dane's used to get like that going to the vet - our Golden's don't seem to mind. We hope the soft chews help with her arthritis!

  7. We hope the chews help Starr a lot. Phantom gets stiff a lot too but he won't take anything for Mom:(

    Bet you had fun with Mom. No cooling here, it just keeps getting hotter and hotter:(

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  9. Sure wish it would cool off here! I guess it has, now that I think about it. It was 100*+ for over a week, since then it's been in the mid-90s.

    I hope Starr is doing better.

  10. so sorry about Starr, sorry to suggest because you might already be doing it but perhaps some massage, or some acupuncture, or cool laser therapy might take a little more edge off, it helps with Breeze ;-) ((hugs)) hope you find something that helps soon,
