Unhappy Sad times in Vancouver....

Forgive me, I am sad. I am usually really perky.
It's just... my best friend is sick and suffering and I am
at the biggest lost in my life ever. I cannot stop sobbing.

My pookonden... (keeshond named Keesha, the pook) is broken.
:<



And I am currently helpless.

Hi yes, sorry- that was a dreadful day. :<

I am coping a bit better and it has only been 3 days.

The vet first off, is Fantastic! Best I have ever had. She actually apologized to me for other vets steering me in the wrong direction all this time. Apparently diet effects chronic ear infection, an allergy in food. I had no clue and this is the first time hearing this. I have been battling a yeast infection in my poor pups ears for years, literally. Countless cleanings and yuk!

So with her new exclusion diet of Pork and green beans, twice a day. Served warmed like a fresh kill (vets words) ha. Hopefully her ears will not be a problem anymore and she can get relief. Onto the other issues...

She is only using 30% lung capacity. So in turn, her heart is pumping 4X the normal rate. She is dehydrated from constantly cooking and as of this moment, we don't know why exactly. A big expensive test will show that, but I dunno if it is worth it. She is 16 after all and perfectly happy besides old lady breath from worn teeth, arthritis and cataracts...ahem... and the whole not being able to breath thing. booooo

Ultrasound in the near future-
to find out if the breathing trouble is fungal or tumors?

synographer is being located currently. I still have hope!

Hi, Welcome. I'm new here as well and the people here are awesome. I'm on the Island so quite close to you.

I also just wanted to say I'm sorry you are going through this and hope you will find answers. She's beautiful. I have an almost 15 1/2 year old cockapoo...so I know about old lady stuff (her not me! LOL).

You've come to a very caring and warm place. I hope you will find support and answers as you travel travel this road with your girl.

Hi Tandemonium, if your vet doesn't have someone currently to do the ultrasound you may want to ask for a referral for Keesha to be booked in as a patient with Canada West Veterinary Specialists and have it done there. I've been to Canada West for ultrasounds for both cats & dogs and they are wonderful there.
