I love my two seniors! I will say at times with health issues it can be difficult,
Lakota- post chemo for lymphoma- 3 years and still going strong. They told me with chemo 7-9 months maybe a year. Here we are 3 years later, holistic vet has been a good send!
Spine issues- herbal meds, acupuncture, chiropractic. Still chasing that ball!
My Miss jade -Of course the age old spine and hips problems. herbal meds,
acupuncture, chiropractic. Thank goodness it has helped, so we been able to avoid meds with harmful side affects.
Spleen removed 3 years ago- Enlarged but no cancer ( Yay)
Bloat with GVD, surgery 2 weeks ago- doing well now. That was terrifying,
of course it happen after my vet was closed. ER vet is 1 hour away. Made it there in 35 minutes. It happened very quickly, I have never experience this in the years I have had GSD. Have done much reading on it, so was very aware of what was happing. The er vet said we were very lucky, to have gotten her there just as the stomach was twisting. She has had a few issues from the surgery. We are finally on the way to a full recovery.
Keeping a close on her as once they have bloat very common for it to happen again, yes stomach was tacked.
Of course growing up a year apart, they have had some small issues and some scares through the years. Love my two seniors and would not give up one moment with them!
Would love to hear from other members who have more than one senior at the same time.
