been very busy with holidays. i like updating this because the thread has almost turned into a journal of my doggys health lol.
he was messed up from a groomer last week. after his er visit, the ultrasound confirmed that he had no internal bleeding which was great news. they did his blood work and faxed it to my local vet. my brother has been in contact with them and i should be seeing him tomorrow to hear if anything changed. they said something about kidney something is 25 percent and should be 35 percent, or maybe they said in reverse he told me a couple days ago.
he seems to function the same now, his muscles were just very sore. all i could think was the groomer was mean to him or something. bud's 15 years old he has to be taken care of!
he hasn't been displaying any signs of additional pain. on xmas eve i guess he ran out of medication and nobody had done anything about it so i bought some human tramadol off the street for him and got him a refill the next day. he was walking around and like, his back legs were misaligned. he couldn't walk straight.. all i could think was oh my god hes in withdrawal. we had the food out on the table and everyone keeps saying "oh he is such a good dog, hes not begging for food.".. i clearly could tell something was wrong because he was NOT at the table as he always was. he was just laying on the floor eyes wide open and kept shifting positions.
i feel he is growing tolerant to the medication. within the next few weeks i want to have another follow-up exam done at the regular vet and see if anything new has came up. i still do need to find out about the recent blood work that was drawn at the ER.
