    With her leg issue, she's really not been outside much if at all in the last few weeks. We've got our central ac set to 72 (70 at night) so I don't think it's a heat issue.

    Our vet's been great at communicating with the emergency clinic. The current plan is to take her off of the antibiotics (as that could have potentially caused a reaction) and keep her on benadryl and a bland diet for a week. If she's not on the mend by then, our regular vet is going to work with one of the internal medicine vets from the emergency hospital to come up with a plan for her!

    I'll keep everyone posted if any new discoveries are made!

    Thanks again,
    Jimmy
    Thank you for the update..... give her hugs from us. Sending lots of prayers and positive thoughts to you all

    Just reading this, does she still have a temp of 103? During this treatment did they try a different antibiotic? She's beautiful, I'm very worried about her! The constant temperature concerns me- and makes my stomach turn that she never needed that surgery... Big hugs to all of you.

    I am praying that being off the meds she will feel so much better. Thank you for the update, and we all here will continue to pray for sweet Betty. Please give us any new updates, as soon as you have any. Betty sounds strong, and being that all her test results are good, I am praying praying praying she is going to push past this!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    From experience, do your best to get your Betty off of that terrible Rimadyl! It caused my baby Lily to have explosive diarrhea.

    Hi All,

    I'm happy to update that Betty is currently doing quite well! In the beginning of August our vet came to the conclusion that Betty either has Inflammatory Bowel Disease or cancer of the bowels. This was primarily based on the fact that she was basically starving to death even though she was consuming plenty of food (albeit by hand feeding only). We opted to not put her under to do the biopsy needed to determine which is was as both are commonly treated with steroids (prednisone). She's been on the prednisone for the last 5 months and has gained back all of her weight (and then some). The vet communicated to us (back in Novermber) that if it is cancer, she would very unlikely make it through January. We're planning on scheduling a follow up appointment in early February, which if she clears her blood work will allow us to start reducing her Prednisone (and keep her weight under control).

    Thanks for all of the support, and I'll post again if we have any further updates!!

    -Jimmy
