Just a quick update on Jessee

Jessee had a accupuncture treatment yesterday with her vet, Dr. Allen.  She always gets a very thorough check over before each treatment.  She continues to maintain her weight at 108.5 which includes her tripawd harness for some assisting and guiding (not much) mainly on stairs into the car.  Dr. Allen said she looks fantastic.  Muscles good and supple and good strength.  No swelling in front paw.  Jessee just kind of lounges on a thick memory foam pad that we donated to our vet that she seems to recognize.  Very patiently lays there while her needles are inserted and she just chills out.  She’s a great patient.  Jessee has had some more anxiety issues late at night where she pants and we don’t seem to be able to comfort her much.  Happens maybe twice a week.  After careful review of her meds and oncology treatment protocol Dr. Allen suggested that we put her back on a nightly dose of Gabapanten.   She tolerates that very well and it’s usually what we give her to calm her down during these episodes.  She took one last night and slept through the entire night very peacefully.  And again, this morning ate a full breakfast as usual. We lost a very dear FB friend, Lady Darla this morning.  She was 12.5 years old.  Jessee has been getting even more hugs today than usual.  Just living like a dog with her, being in the moment and enjoying each and every one.

  1. Ohhhh I’m sorry to read about Lady Darla. 12.5 is amazing but it’s just never long enough. Give Jessee extra hugs from us too. And you get one as well 🙂

    I love that she is doing so well and now you found a way to minimize the anxiety episodes. Whatever works to make her happy and comfy. YAY for her getting another great checkup, thank you for that report.

    Many hugs to all of you!

  2. Okay, okay..”Dr. Allen says she looks fantastic!” And that is SPECTACULAR news: however, if we had an actual picture of Jessee to view, then we would also know she “looks” fantastic!!
    Glad the Vet suggested nightly dose of Gaba to take the edge off and help her sleep well.
    Now….back to the fact that you actually made a post without a picture of Jessee😱😡 We KNOW you’ll correct that little oversight soon,very, very soon!!!
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
