Honey & Kelly's 6 month physicals!
Honey passed hers with flying colors!!! Everything was normal including her bloodwork.
Kelly's was really a pleasant surprise.
His ALT values are down to 191, the rest of his bloodwork was also normal!!! He's been having problems seeing at night and he may have the beginnings of his retinas atrophying. Since his ALT values are doing so good he'll continue taking the amoxicilline.
While we were there, our vet introduced me to a vet who specializes in veterinary rehab and works with older dogs. While what she does is physical therapy, legally in FL it can't be called physical therapy on animals. I had been planning on taking Kel and Honey for Bowen Therapy, but figured I'd try this type of therapy first.
Kel had his LONG two hour appointment today and will have therapy Friday. She worked some on Honey. Honey will have her LONG two hour appointment then. She'll work some on Kelly.
Kel laid on a magnetic bed while she stretched, massaged, and "pulled" his various joints, paying particular attention to his elbows. It was remarkable. She measured the various angles before and after the therapy and there was a big difference in his range of motion. He was supposed to start taking Pred today (after a five day hiatus from Metacam), but this doctor wants me to wait until tomorrow to see how the new therapy did without the help of new meds.
Honey wasn't too impressed with the procedure, but she seems to feel better. Both Kel and her can now move their tails.
I'll post more after their appointment on Friday. I have to drop them off and then pick them up in the afternoon because I have a lunch date with a friend I haven't seen in ages and didn't want to cancel it.
