My dogs had a great weekend. It was three days of celebrating, first Morgan's birthday, then snow. Even the ones on special diets got to enjoy a cupcake for the big birthday. Then to wake up to snow was all a dog could ask for.
Monday it was my turn. I had an early morning meeting with Dr B at his office to go over Morgan's lab results. Dr B hadn't seen them yet either so we were both surprised. Except for one liver enzyme, everything was normal. All the other liver values that had been high have come back to normal range. The one high one has come way down from over 3000 to just 700. That's still high, but it's moving in the right direction.
To make me even happier, her thyroid level is high and we're adjusting her medication to bring it down a little. That should help with the weight problem. She's been losing too much weight lately and this should help her gain a little.
Today I had to stop by and pick up some supplies from the vet clinic, so we took Sebastian for a weigh-in. He's been dieting forever and the last time we checked he'd lost about four pounds. Today it showed that he's lost another pound. It's been a long, slow process for him, but it's paying off.
So having a 15 year old with an almost perfect lab report is cause for celebration in my book. No cupcakes, just a really good feeling.
