My little lady’s been sick for more than two months now. During April, she was placed on Metronidazole, an antibiotic which helped. However, Divinity finished her rounds of Metronidazole a little more two weeks ago, and since then, her health has gotten worse, much worse.
Recently, Divinity’s lost her appetite, and hardly eats. Regularly, I’ve had to make several versions of each meal, before I find a version she’ll actually eat, at least some of it anyway.
Yesterday, I met with Dr. Steve who is Divinity’s vet, and told him she’d gotten very sick again. I described Divinity’s symptoms, which now include some convulsions/seizures on her left side.
Some background information on Divinity
Divinity spent her first nine years in a puppy-mill, having countless number of puppies. Divinity’s foster-mom calculated that over those nine years, Divinity had probably given birth to at least 60 puppies. Did having all those puppies cause/contribute to this problem? Whether it did or not, it certainly wasn’t good for my little lady.
Dr Steve’s Diagnosis
Dr. Steve said he believes that even if we performed very expensive, and painful invasive tests, that the results would come back stating Divinity has some form of cancer in her lower parts, that no amount of money could cure.
It was decided to put Divinity back on Metronidazole. How long will the Metronidazole work? We have no idea, but it’s the only alternative at the moment.
When Divinity lets me know it’s time, we’ll take our last drive together to see Dr. Steve.
In the meantime, I’m going to make each day for Divinity as pleasant, and as fun as I can. Going for drives in the country, and certainly a camping trip is in order, even if it’s an indoor camping trip. Divinity’s also been fascinated by boats, so I’m going to try and find someone to give her a boat ride.
Next week Divinity & I celebrate our Fifth Adoption Anniversary! Divinity also has an appointment scheduled at the beauty parlour for next week, and I plan many trips to Dairy Queen for hamburgers & Pup-Cups for my little lady.
