A Busy Little Guy.
The Sydster back in 1994, gosh was he a busy
one and so cute. I took peanut in to see his Doc. just to make sure that his
heart condition hadn't changed drastically. You'll recall he had that spell two
weeks ago. Dr. Suzey and I are in agreement that unless we were to start running
major tests on him to accurately diagnose his problems, and treat them, than the
best we could do for him is what we are doing already. He has IVDD, his left
back leg is so weak he is almost not able to make it up the stairs, he hasn't
gone down stairs for some time now. He is a bit senile, pretty rigid in his
routine. He is losing his ability to regulate his um bizness, his teeth are
wretched, and his poor digestive system simply has not been right since his
surgery. His senses are dulled, no hearing at all. Lets see have I left anything
out? As for Dr. Suzey's diagnosis on what happened to cause his fainting spell,
she was saying that his heart most likely was trying to work harder than it has
the strength to do, this caused it to slow way down in response. His passing out
was from his heart being overworked :-( The good news is that nothing has
changed in his heartbeats, he is still strong and steady all around. He has been
at a stage 3 heart murmer for about 2 years now. He is still eating pretty well,
fairly happy, (He lets us know when he isn't!) he has a bit of sparkle in his
eyes, isn't coughing, drinking excessively, or displaying any other signs of
distress. So we will just hang in there with him. I did start him on the Science
Diet B/D food that Karen recommended as well as keeping him on the Selegiline
for a longer run---it's hasn't even been a month yet. He will do a round of
Clavamox for his yukky mouth. I'm not willing to put him under to pull any more
teeth. There is a chance that a UTI has something to do with his inability to
hold; the antibiotic would clear that as well. Just in case anyone is thinking
"Why keep him alive with all that?". Sydney hasn't given us the signal yet that
it is his time. He has been a great companion these 14 years. A few
inconveniences are not the signal to us that he has served his life to our time
line. In some respects I think we are lucky that we are going through this
process for the first time with a little dog that is fairly easy to manage and
care for. (If you had a Terrier you would be laughing at that manage part.)
