    Thumbs up Sally aced her vet visit today, YAYY!

    Overall Sally's very healthy. I asked several things that I was concerned about.

    Eyes - Since she's had two eyes surgeries (entropion on each eye) on April 2nd, I was very concerned about her one eye that's has a film/haze over it and if she could see out of it. It is a bit infected but she can see out of it. He gave me a compound prescription of Cyclosporin Opth. Drops 30ml. She'll get that twice a day for life. She has dry eye. But the haze should clear up soon.


    Age - Her is now officially May 11, 2006. May 11th since that's the day we got her. He thinks that she's a bit younger than 7 but it's hard to tell due to most of her teeth missing.

    Hot spot on hind quarter - It's crusty right now but not bad. If squeezed it will ooze a bit of blood. He prescribed Mupirocin Ointment USP 2%. I can also use that for other areas.
    Glucosamine - I asked him about that for her and I'll get her started on that in about 3 weeks. He gave her a startup shot that will last for 3 weeks. I need to find the liquid as she won't accept anything that's not from her bowl. Not peanut butter, not banana, nothing. Don't think she's ever had a treat before.

    Arthritis in her front legs - She doesn't appear to have it yet thank goodness.

    Weight - She weighed in at 43 pounds today. That's 10 less than I was told back in April. He does want her to gain some weight, 5-8 pounds. She's quite long. I was thinking 4-6 so I'm on target a bit and will put some weight on her and monitor her closely

    Food - Right now on a mix of Fromm Pork & Peas (1/2 cup), lean ground beef (1/2 cup) and white rice (1/2 cup) to get her to eat. Her stools are finally firming up and she had her first taste of pumpkin last night. Loved it!

    Well that's about it and I couldn't be happier with her checkup today.

    @BruceP he did say that the spot on her front leg could have been from licking before if something was bothering her.

    Good to hear that he could identify it. Gracie's forearms turn that color from her saliva so that is why I mentioned it.
