I had a perfect recheck appointment at my rehab vet on Tuesday. Mom thought I was doing really well, but she isn’t a vet, so who knows what the real vet may find. Both of us were a bit anxious on the way to my appointment.
We arrived and got to go right into the exam room after I weighed in. My weight is still good and that is important for overall health. I’m always between twenty eight and thirty pounds. Thirty is a better weight for me, though. While waiting, I sat on the big exam bed across from my mom.
From the bed there is a perfect view of the big jar of liver treats. I’m not fond of any vet, but at this place, they always stuff me full of liver treats. Did you know they are my favorite treats? Mom has a big bag at home too.
Remember last winter I hurt my front leg and I was limping on and off. I had laser treatments for a few weeks and then started on Adequan shots. After five weeks of shots, I amazed my mom. I started to jump right into the car which I had never done in my life. She noticed I was moving better overall. My rehab vet checked me over really well, starting with my back half. Aside from my lower spine needing a small chiropractic adjustment, things felt great!
Next she checked my front half, including my front left leg and paw where I had lots of pain and swelling. Last time she saw me in May, I still had some swelling there. Well, no more! My perfect recheck ended with her saying how happy she is that I am doing so well and feeling so good. She also said I am a great patient. My secret is I will do anything for liver treats, LOL! Since I am not a pet dog, but a working dog I will go back twice a year to have things monitored. I’m cleared to do anything I would like to do, within reason. My injections will continue probably for the rest of my life, but they are once a month and I don’t mind at all. Good health is something to be thankful for!
