Black & White Sunday: Smile

Happy Sunday everyone!  While these photos were shot before Zeus came down with Vestibular Syndrome of Old Dogs and pneumonia, the could easily be mistaken for  yesterday. 

I'm happy to report that my baby boy is pretty much back to his usual self (which does include a little stumble now and then, as his back legs are really showing the arthritis these days, but it's nothing we can't handle)! He had another check up with Dr. C on Thursday and she was thrilled! The pneumonia seems to be clearing nicely. His heart and lungs sounded so good that she didn't feel the need to take another set of follow up x-rays. We'll finish out his 21 day stint of antibiotics tomorrow and keep an eye on him for any signs of a cough (in which case we'll go for the x-rays and more antibiotics), but she is pretty confident it did the trick.

Dr. C let on a little more about just how touch-and-go things got with Zeus during this difficult time.  She is amazed at his recovery and said it is nothing short of remarkable, as did the receptionist who checked us out.  Dr. C always writes notes on the bill and when I read them at home, I couldn't help but smile.  She praised us for our nursing care and said that Zeus' recovery had a lot to do with the care he received.  My heart melts.....

So glad he's feeling better. The best nursing care at home can contribute dramatically to a pet's recovery. Good for you!

How wonderful! So glad Zeus is feeling better. Good care starts with lots of LOVE, which I am SURE you gave him in just the right doses!

Hooray for Zeus! I've worried about your boy. Happy Sunday, Nic and Zeus (and everyone else, of course).
