She is 12 years, 2 months (as the VEC says). I guess there's a big difference at that age between 12.2 and 12 years, 11 months.

I think she would also love to go run around and play ball,

This is great news. Sending good thought to Tee for lots of time to do just that.

Thank you! Four more days til the stitches come out!

And I can't wait til she can be cone-free. I have started to leave it off when I am home - unless she goes into my bed to sleep and I can't monitor, then I put it on. She also has it on overnight. But she pays the wound no attention at all. Really, the only bits I've had to remind her not to lick are her IV sites. She's such a good girl.

Is she getting some all natural yogurt with her food or a commerical product to replace the "good" bacteria in her gut? If not it may help with her diarrhea.

I am glad she is more alert and wanting to be more active.

Prayers still coming yours and Tee's way.

Tesia

Glad to hear that Tee is eating and more engaged and that her stitches come out in three days.
I am sorry to hear the report, but we must all take it ONE DAY AT A TIME.
We have something to learn from dogs, they enjoy each day and don't worry about tomorrow!! Tesia has a wonderful Mom!!
Tesia reminds me so much of my Smooch!!

You know what? I haven't been giving her yogurt - and I should be. I think I have been worried about making her stomach worse because she has never had anything besides dog food. The chicken and rice have been good - she definitely loves the chicken. But the yogurt would probably help, too. Is there a certain kind of yogurt I should look for? Or all they all good? What % fat do you give your dog?

Don't get yoghurt that has artificial sweeteners in it.
I give my guinea pig yoghurt daily as recommended by the vet. I give him yoplait original.
Wishing Tesa all the best!

The yogurt is a good thing Andy's vet recommended it after his GI upsets, saying the 'good bacteria' needs to be replenished. He loved it. In fact, he just had some this morning.

Glad to see Tesia is getting more perky, that her stitches will be out soon and that her infection is under control. The stronger she can get the better it is for whichever treatment you and your vets will decide upon.

Since the chicken and rice has barely any fat, I would probably give the regular fat yoghurt. You might even try the Greek kind, it has more protein.

Hoping Tesia is back to chasing her ball really soon. You are both troopers and are in my thoughts.

Well, who knew Miss Picky McPickster would love yogurt???

I am so happy. I needed the extra little nudge to try it (I'd been worried about adding something else to her upset tummy) and Millie'sMom's message came as I was feeling quite desperate (she hasn't eaten well at all today). I went and bought some Activia 4% plain, and mixed some chicken and rice with it. She LOVED it - licked the bowl clean. I plan to give her some more of all three with her nighttime antibiotic.

You guys are truly the best. I don't know what I would do without the support, the great suggestions, and encouragement. Thank you.
