One year

It's been 1 year since Lucky started first showing signs of Addison's Disease. He was officially diagnosed on June 2nd, but started exhibiting symptoms on May 26th. Funny how quickly that year went by. Now it's routine for that monthly shot and morning "peanut butter pill".

At our vet appointment on Friday he decided he wouldn't oblige us with a stool sample. But the vet thinks it's probably just mild colitis, so we're giving him probiotics to see if that helps.

Otherwise it was your typical Memorial Day weekend. Here's some pics.

Another Lucky shot

I also have a video I need to upload, once I finish editing it. I tried getting it done yesterday but the software kept crashing on me. But the wait will be worth it.

Monthly Vet Appointment

Another month, another Percorten injection.

Today we're sending along a fecal. He's been having the occasional loose stools this week and I want to rule out the Return of Giardia or other form of parasite.

I think I also want her to check his glands. He's been scooting more than normal - whether due to the loose stools or not, I don't know. He is not going to be a happy puppy. He's pretty much used to the shots but rectals get tongue-flicks galore. Poor pook.
