Well looks like Jessee is going to have another battle. We were at the vet for Accupuncture on Tuesday and noticed she had lost 3 lbs in two weeks. Keeping upping food and we agreed to start adding olive oil to her diet. This is in addition to the flax seed oil in her oncology diet and fish oil. We took her back for a urine sample yesterday and our oncologist was there. So we agreed a chest X-ray was warranted. And unfortunately they found a small nodule. Appears to be one. Waiting for the radiologist to review and write a report (she has covid). Feeling pretty crappy and devastated right now. We are starting her on Ripamycin asap when it arrives. So we have our fingers crossed and hoping this will slow it down and we can pack a few pounds back on her. Trying to get my head wrapped around this. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
This was a throw back photo from six years ago when this girl loved her pool. She’s my heart
Mom thought I looked absolutely stunning in this pose so wanted to share. I got so many well wishes and happy thoughts from people yesterday. I don’t know if we have mentioned recently or not but we are continuing with the ElleVet product we use and also feel that it has helped me maintain my warrior status!
OMG, Got up this morning and checked my calendar and noticed the 15th and it dawned on me!! 17 months ago today my Jessee became a tripawd. Where has all the time gone? Been loving on her every single extra day we’ve had. She is doing so well. She is getting accupuncture treatments every two weeks to help her neck and shoulder (from tripawd stress) as well as some rear leg help. Has a fabulous appetite and is just doing very very well for an almost 10 year old dane (August 1st). She still jumps up on the bed with a small stool to assist, runs and chases the birds. Just living her life. Here are some very recent photos from the last day or so..
This was taken last night
Also last night after she settled in for a nice suckie baby session
Couple days ago showing her latest incision healing
And this was Jessee and Jaymee at the vet for her treatment. She knows this is to help her. She just lays on her comfy cushion as Dr. Allen inserts the needles and she relaxes during the session.
For anyone wondering if it’s the right thing to do to amputate a leg on a large dog. Please read my Blog regarding Jessee. We have had 17 months so far and counting of extra time with Jessee we never thought we’d have after the diagnosis. She is doing so well and had adapted like the superstar she is!!
