still waitin for the vet's call back on what the results mean...im thinkin he's a very busy guy :lol:

well here's a little update
he's been takin the daily vitamins i got him mixed in with some organic yogurt lately...so im happy about that :) the vit c is more tricky since its a powder perhaps ill mix it with the coconut oil i give him :)

today he really surprised me...i gave him an option of eatin this or that and he took the kibbles! so i had to share with you and everyone else here whose been followin up on him

doesnt he look so proud?


here's a small vid. the lady whose in it midway is my mom...LOL~ she loves dex to death. the background noise is the tv and my dad talkin -.-

Aww good boy Dexy, eating your kibble.
I hope the vet figures out exactly what's happening to poor Dex.
I did not know he was losing so much fur, hope his new food will
help. Aww I just want to give him a big hug and a smooch on his
little nose. Did you read, I don't remember where, I mentioned to
you that Natural Balance also makes a "roll" type dog food? I like
to cut that roll up in tiny pieces and use it for training my rescues.
All the dogs think it's a treat, but it's really food. The lamb one seems
to be a fav of most of them. You should give it a try if vet approves.
Best of luck to you & Dexter, I hope he gets better super soon, he's
such a good boy, I can watch him chew for hours.

How is he overall? He seems pretty upbeat, like nothing is wrong.
Did you notice any changes in his behavior?

I forgot to mention it earlier, but your mom is soooo cute with Dexter! :)

You are lucky that your mom likes him so much.
My mom hates animals, so I moved out very
young and opened a zoo. lol :lol:

Thank you Sugar for posting this update. I feel as anxious as you about the vet's analysis of the results. As for Dex eating kibble that is awesome. Keep doing what your doing with him, because so far it seems to be helping him a lot. I know you and him have a ways to go but you are both certainly on the right track!!!

BTW~LS~ you crack me up with the Zoo comment.

Never gone from you long ;)
wa ha ha ha! i knew u'd be back for mwa :)

ok~!

so what u missed out was basically

1. wanted to get dexter neutered for the new puppy comin along in a couple months
2. past vet said no anethesia because of elevated livers in his bloodtest plus he might have cushion disease...got tested negative thank god
3. wanted a 2nd opinion
4. went to the 2nd best vet around my location
5. got charged over $700
6. those were some crazy results. he said there needs to be ANOTHER deeper test to test for cushions...the one the other vet did was too simple. hes worried because from the lack of fur dex has on his back and head
7. looks like hes lackin nutrients too..
8. bought him daily vitamins from konaschips.com and also vit c
9. was worried for a bit after...and confused...
10. still waitin for the vets callback on wth is next? he said more tests...which means more money and special doses of things...blah....

now ur caught up!
