The good news is Lola seems to be feeling better... and continues to ask for more treats (or just about any food she can get her paws on). That's her "For Me?" look above... and no, I can not resist.
We had a check up with our awesome vet, Dr C on Thursday. I was really worried that we would put her on the scale and find out she lost more weight, but much to my surprise, she had gained almost a full pound! It doesn't sound like much, but after loosing 8 pounds of muscle mass and looking so boney, I'll take it. I asked Dr C if we should think about adding more protein to her diet, either in the form of a supplement or pieces of chicken/fish. She didn't think we should go that route, but instead add canned puppy food to her kibble. We started doing that yesterday.
The other great news is Dr C decreased Lola's prednisone again!!! We're now down to 10mg, twice a day. (For those who haven't followed, we started this ordeal at 30mg, twice a day) She's been having a real hard time getting up on the couches for the past couple weeks and today, she's done it all by herself several times... so I think things are beginning to look up.
It's been a snowy day here, so we'll leave you with a shot of the big flakes... enjoy the rest of your Sunday-Funday!
