Banshee...Banshee...Bansheee...what can I say.

Her birthday was Wednesday. She's now 13 years old.

BW done today.

CREA is back in normal range of 1.2.

Doc said that happens. The CREA will level off, body makes adjustments and the CREA will drop back down.

BUN was high but he wasn't concerned because she had just eaten.
All other values in range.

He said she was one of the oldest Boxer they had ever had. There was a 14 yr old once but that's it.

Tough ole bird.

Banshee is having a really rough night. She's stumbling, going to lay down in corners and really disoriented. We finally got her to lay on the couch and settle down. Sierra was sticking really close to her.

Part of the problem is her back was hurting her again. I gave her a tramadol and Scott gave her 5 mg of pred for the inflammation. I don't know why my husband thinks I"m a vet. He asked me if I wanted him to give her pred this morning. ummm...I don't know. How about you call the vet and work out a plan? LOL

The other problem is she's just very old and sometimes gets lost. When let outside, she just stood there in the same spot for 15 minutes staring out into the dark.

So, she is better this morning..mostly due to the tramadol and I"ll run over at lunch to pick up some turmeric for inflammation. He needs to order the Zeel for the pain tonight. But she's still a little lost.

Good! We have her on 5mg with little side affects. We do that for 10 days and then 10 days every third day. Started her on Dasuquin and need to order Zeel and Traumeel for her today.
