Well Sassy had her 3 months on Metronomics.  Everything looks good.  White cell count was a little elevated and we took a closer look with that with a blood smear slide.  Cells looked fine and nothing indicating anything major to worry about that way.  Dr Boyer thinks that it is caused from the mets being there and so it did elevate the white cell counts.  NO  blood in the urine which is good.  Lung still sound CLEAR.  They are all amazed that Sassy is doing so great.  Next Friday is our 7 month ampuversary.  The clinic is just amazed at how well she has adjusted and is continuing to do so well.  So we know we have some great guardian angels that are helping things along.


Just to let everyone know the heat/humidity does slow us down a little but we are still running & chasing squirrels & deer.  🙂   So as long as we are doing all of the above and eating our hamburger, yogurt, & goats milk things are going good.    We are trying to add a few new things in there too.  I got Sassy to actually eat some dog food it was some canned food (Natural Balance grain free stew) mixed in her hamburger but she did eat it.  I feel some what better if I can continue to get her to eat.  🙂


Bosch also had an appointment.  He had a follow up to his blood in his urine.  Good news there no blood in the urine.  We are going to continue with another 5 weeks of antibiotics since he is responding to the treatment.  Dr Boyer feels that it was a prostrate problem.  Which doesn’t seem like good news but to me it is as he has that small cyst on his kidney that could have been causing the problem.  With the responding to the antibiotics just means that wasn’t the case.  Yay.

    Sassy is the Tripawds ambassador for Hope and Overcoming! She is doing so well that it shows everyone what is possible, and no one should ever say it’s hopeless when their dog or cat gets mets. It may be a bump in the road, but I think how you respond to it means the difference between a pothole and a sinkhole. Does that make any sense?

    And good for Bosch! It’s great that he’s doing well and you don’t have to worry about him.

    Keep on truckin’, Sassy Sugar Bear! Your fan club adores you!

      Most definately. When we first got the diagnosis I thought it was a sinkhole. After talking to you & everyone here and I thought about how Sassy is fighting I realized it was just a pothole that we could over come and will overcome. Yes, I have bad days, Sassy has bad days where the heat gets to her but its not those kind of bad days where we are giving up. Thank you for being part of our fan club.
