Hi everyone! Brutus here. We've been a bit tardy about posting and commenting. We've been reading everyone's blog though.
We even missed the Sept pug meet up. Then I hear we aren't going to Pugapalooza. What a buzzkill. Everything is ok Mom is a bit distracted with some work and personal stuff. Mom tends to isolate herself when she gets like this. blah blah blah.
Miley had a crisis. She went back for bloodwork and some of the enzymes were still high so Dr. Grasso wanted to test her for Addison's Disease.
It is the common name for hypoadrenocorticism, or adrenal insufficiency. It is a disease with symptoms that are common in many other ailments, making diagnosis difficult and sometimes a process of elimination. But once Addison's is correctly diagnosed, a properly treated dog can live a normal active life.
We will know about her results on Thursday or Friday and we'll post an update. I got to ride in the car when we took her to vet earlier today! YES
I have been doing great. Although Mom has given me a bath 2 times in the past 2 weeks. Apparently I have allergies and have been getting scabs on my skin so I get tortured. A bath and then the furminator. I don't have anymore scabs so you'd think she would stop with the baths? Mom is a little slow.
