We hope everyone had a very nice Lola's birthday.... er, we mean 4th of July! My baby girl has a little bit of a stomach issue that started the day before, which meant we didn't do her birthday cake on Thursday (she will get that tonight). She did get her present though, an adorable duckie who's squeakers are supposed to keep on squeaking even after her sister "kills" them...
On Friday, the birthday girl and her big brother went for a R-I-D-E to the vet.
Zeus was there for his quarterly blood work to check his liver levels. We got the results this morning and they are about the same as they were in March. While I would have liked to see them come back down, our wonderful vet seems happy with the stabilization and wants to wait 4 months to recheck this time around.
Lola was there for a 2 week check up after we decreased her prednisone down to 10mg every other day, and we figured we'd get her stool checked too (the "stomach" issues referred to above had absolutely nothing to do with her appetite or anything coming back up, just what was rocketing out of her butt).
She had lots of kisses for our vet, who thought she looked great! With some bacteria present in her stool, she's back on antibiotics for a week. And yes, things seem to be clearing up ... which is a good thing!
