I was asked by the mods a long time ago to not change the title.

I had done it because I noticed others did. shrug I was told it was confusing I believe.

That may have changed, of course.

Hey-I'm sorry. It was supposed to be a joke because your news about Abbey is good. Actually-the only important part is that Abbey is acting like herself.

Ahh, gotcha!
I really thought we were heading toward unstable times. She was getting worse and worse and just too stubborn to show her pain. The medicine gives me hope, and it is making such a difference. I never thought she would be like a puppy again!

The problem is that the title is in each of the replies, so the title would have to be changed on how many replies there are in the thread.

Anyone however can change the title to later replies if they use the Reply window rather than the quick reply at the bottom of the page.

Is it normal for this to be sort of a roller coaster? She seems to be doing so much better and playing, but she is still having her bathroom issues. Her legs are not shaking, which is still an improvement. She just takes while to finish her business. Also, I think she might have peed on herself... Can't find the accident spot. Will be washing her bed tonight. And give her a bath. Bad timing, I have a lot to accomplish after work so it looks like I may be up very late!

I don't know what the meds are, but many require regular blood testing because they are hard on the liver and kidneys. Blood test are supposed to be taken before most of these meds are taken, and then evaluated again shortly after they are started. The meds will tend to make nearly all digestive issues worse.

Also, if some of the issues are from an underlying tick disease, the meds won't help in the long run if the disease is progressing.

Do you have any recent blood results? What are the meds she is on?

Shoshi started peeing in her sleep a couple of years ago. We used Proin and it worked like a charm. It is an RX but its not expensive and can be bought on line. I understand that's common in a older pups. I know many people who have had success with it.
