Well HRH Missie the poo is off to see the vet on Tuesday. She has been doing some strange stuff for the past few days. Like

-being extremely fussy at meal times. Yes have tried everything to entice the little bugger and Nada.

-doing the head down, butt up stretch. Thought this was her colitis coming back but nope

- shivering and wanting to be on me all the time.

No vomiting, no soupy poopy, not exposed to anything new or harmful and no fever .

This lasts for most of the day and she seems to come around at night. Her tummy is not bloated and she is drinking water. Gums are nice and pink and she has a healthy coat and bright eyes. Hubby says she has good poops so :shrug: WTH now? any ideas?:wall::wall::wall::wall:

How is her energy level? same as usual?

Her tummy doesn't hurt when you gently press on it?

Will she eat people food & not her own? perhaps she's bored with the brand/flavour?

no pain when i palpate her tummy, hips , feet anywhere.

Energy level is the same..if Tyra or Piper has it, it is mine, now lol

She has turned her royal nose up at prime rib, chicken, turkey, omelet. She ate a little pasta tonight mixed with chicken.


She is driving her mommy nuts lol

I'm guessing she's has not done this before?

How old is she?

Is she excited for dinner while you are preparing it?

Turning 6

nope

She was playing with her monkey tonight and played the lets get the socks off game also.


I am thinking pehaps she may be havimg some problems with her back or hips. She seems to think about how she is going to jump on the bed sometimes.

No parasites/worms I hope?

Since she's not interested in much people food I think it's probably not just pickiness

I'm thinking liver issues, hip/back issues, (you're sure it's not) colitis?

I am sure it is not the colitis...when she has that her temp spikes at 104 and she has bloody soupy poops and sometimes vomits.

Well HRH was fine today. She ate half her breakfast and devoured her dinner. A friend of mine thinks that with me being home so much for the past 2 weeks that I confused her. (I have pneumonia) Or upset her routine. :shrug: But she is still going in on Tuesday to see her buddy the vet.

Well HRH went to see her buddy the vet today. He spent over an hour on her giving her the complete check up. He could not find anything so he took some blood samples. I should have some new tomorrow with the results. The little fart was her normal charming self at the vets. Refused steak and eggs for breakfast and chewed down on her own food tonight. Tried to get a poop sample, I think when she hears vet the poop factory shuts down. Tried last night, this morning and a walk at the vets and nothing. Got her home, and I tell you, she delivered a pile close to the size of a doberman. LOL Vet even laughed when hubby scooped it up and brought it back across town for testing.

well HRH's test results came in. Her blood panels were great. The vet says Missie may have twisted her back a little. Since she cannot have medicam for pain ( she is allergic to it, caused her to bleed internally) she is now on prednisone for a few days.

So, I cut the legs off the bed and dropped it drastically down close to the floor, the couch has been lowered also so HRH will find it easier to climb up. Depending on how sore she is the next is a doggie ramp to get outside easier.

Poor little fart.

Great that her blood work came back all good.

Ah yes twisting the back would explain it esp for the small slightly longish in the back Shih Tzu :shrug:

You can buy or make little carpeted steps for her to easily access the bed/couch.
