Just to let you know, Molly is home now! She is very skinny and has lots of bald patches where she had drips attatched! She's had some sausage, been in the garden for a wee and had a very short play! Other than that she is sleeping! It's fantastic to have her home, especially as I was told she probably wouldn't be alive on Wednesday! Thanks for all of your kind messages x

I hope everything goes well for your girl.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but have your spoken to the breeder? It might be worth speaking to her so she can be aware, hopefully speak to the other owners and not breed again??

Hi Amarante! She's doing really well! Went back to vets yesterday and they were pleased with her! She's not back to her old self yet, but then she's been through a tough time! She tires very easily at the moment! Seems hungry all the time, but then she didnt eat for 5 days, so has a lot of catching up to do! How has Daisy been?

Amarante seems so formal, most people know me as Dancin' Debs or Debs :lol:

Great news she's eating well. My vet told me it's the thing to look for, so believe me you do, like a hawk. She is still more hungry than normal but that is the medication. We know and pretend we can't hear her stealing the cats bowls. My vet also said to make sure she drinks, which to be fair she does but I always make her food wetter than the other's too just to make sure.

The other thing we noticed after it was diagnosed was that she is more insecure and wary of things when out. She always barks when we meet other dogs or people which she didn't before. As I said before, it's almost like she has some puppy ways again. I love her to bits though! :) Keep us updated how Molly gets on. xx

Debs, I'm also deb! Molly sounds a lot like daisy! She is a lot more nervy out on her walks! Doesn't seem to like the rain anymore! But then i keep saying it's early days as it was only this time last week that she was diagnosed! I was wondering what and how many tablets daisy is on? Molly is on 2 1/2 (0.1mg) florinef twice a day and 1 prednicare twice a day! And have you heard of an injection alternative?
