So Troopster went to the vet yesterday for a clinical trial check up thingy..
and Doc says he is a healthy boy! except for the next round of antibiotics and neboulizer for his lungs, and his some what stunted growth. He is going grow old like his sister! He gets tested once more at the micro-plasm level for distemper and he is done!
Every few months he will get rounds of anti-biotics and the nebulizor thingy. But hes going to live.. YAY :)
So Sorry I havent been on lately to post new updates on Pepper and Trooper. We recently put Sadie down, and its been rough.
So heres a mini update. Pepper is healthy and getting big. She’s now 24lbs and growing. Crazy she is. Always gotta know what the other dogs are doing. She has also been a huge help in protecting Trooper and she makes sure he doesn’t over exert himself.
Trooper has gone through is first round of Distemper shots and it worked! His distemper has stopped progressing all together, and he is now on his second round of vials, and they hope to get it out of the micro plasm.. (still trying to figure out what that all means).
Hes not as big as Pepper, but he is eating a lot more and 3x a day. So hes getting healthier! We nebulize him every night, (he gets doggie ice cream as his reward). So that clears out all the crap thats built up in his lungs.
He still has damaged lungs, but he’s not coughing very little if not at all. He’s almost back to his old self. Just not as playful.
We are going to be keeping Trooper and Pepper as their forever home. However, Due to the Ranch’s vet, Trooper was ignored and left for dead, By the time we got him to our vet, he had severe pneumonia. After I took them yesterday to see the good doc, Trooper was x-ray’d, and found that he has permeant Lung damage from it. So Chasewood Vet’s YOU SUCK.. Malpractice anyone?
Hey everyone! I have added a new blog for Big Dog Ranch Rescue, the organization that my mother and I work with. She will be uploading pictures and bios when she visits the ranch. Please follow and tell others!
“Chance bonded quickly with an 8-year-old abuse victim. “A few months later when it was time for her trial, this little girl requested that Chance be present,” says Babbitt. “Chance sat in the waiting room with her, just outside the courtroom while she petted and talked to him. He gave her the courage to go into the courtroom alone and testify about her abuse. She did a great job. And when she came back into the waiting room, she walked right over to Chance and gave him a big hug. Chance was a bright star in what is often a sea of darkness for these kids.”—http://www.mysanantonio.com/default/article/It-was-a-Chance-encounter-1311130.php#ixzz1HzuqyZf0 (via happydawgblawg)
If you would like to help your local organization, ASPCA, or us, you can do so by volunteering, donating old blankets, or anything they have on the list, or your home for a foster. Any help is needed, and money doesnt need to be the only thing donated!
Guess what everyone!! We went to the vet for the first time today and we are healthy!! The doc and tech were so surprised at troopers turn around after his round of ammonia antibiotics! He has one more week of the meds and then we can both join the other dogs of the house! (Pics of them soon and sorry no pics of puppies at vet, I wasn’t there and my mom tried!) Oh and we so got in trouble jumping out of the car when mom went to pay the bill! Hehehe oops! :)
