Thank you for all who prayed for our dear Reggie, again this really touches my heart. Reggie has always be a finicky eater and I'm constantly trying new foods on him plus adding cooked chicken and rice. Yesterday, I ran out and got some ground turkey to add to his food-he seemed to like it. However, his appetite is very low and I know he's lost weight(approx. 3-4 lbs which is a lot on a small dog) so I do try to give him things he'll like. With his being up a good part of Sunday night, I fed him earlier yesterday afternoon-to try to avoid his needing to go out around 2:00 a.m. Thankfully it did work! Then of course, we had another issue last evening~he had been outside taking care of business and running the fence line. He came running into the house like he was a puppy; truly I haven't seen this type of energy in 5 yrs. Hubby and I just watched him and laughed. He finally trotted into the kitchen and I thought maybe he was hungry so got a dog treat out for him. He wasn't and began having a mild seizure; this one lasted a lot longer than his previous ones. I have never seen him have a big energy burst and then seize. Finally I just picked him up and took him over to his bed and put him on it. I really wasn't sure if it was more than just a mild seizure at this point or not. It took at least 30 minutes for him to snap back and get up, but the good news is he slept all night. This morning he ate a touch of his food-he will probably finish it off before lunch. It is so hard when we see our furbabies having such difficulties. As you know, Reggie has had months of Grace when the vet originally told us he'd only have 3-4 weeks. I still wonder if the shot he got last Friday has negatively impacted him. He is acting like his normal self today and I'm thankful for that. I'm never sure what lies ahead for him, but I am thankful for every day we have with him. There are many blogging friends out there who are going through similar trials with their pups. It is always so hard, be it old age or a disease.
Make sure you give your pets some extra loving today!
