Sparks Annual Vet Visit Today


Recommended Posts

I brought Sparks in for his annual vet visit.

Test results came back all normal :yay

I did a blood profile as well- those results come back tomorrow.

 

He weighed 77.9 last year and was 77.8 today. WAHOO!

I said that he really doesn't want to eat kibble and it's been a struggle for a year to get him to eat. My vet said since he hasn't lost much weight, don't stress so much about it.

 

For a 12 year old, he's a great shape :)

 

I had an 11 yr old hound this weekend that I was pet sitting. He's not doing so well and has lost 20 lbs since April when I had him last time. They weren't sure what was going on either. Really put things into perspective for me with Sparks. I realized I really have it good with Sparks.

 

I can't wait to get home and hug my old man.

 

After the vet, we stopped to visit granny in the nursing home :)

Has he lost a lot of weight?

I meant to ask how he's doing when I saw you Sat but again was a zombie and out of it.

Thats so awsome for sparks.

we have fluctuating weight issues here with D.C and she will be 11 this year, i have here at a steady 73.5 and its hard to get her any heavier.... of course if she would stop running with the puppy she might weigh more :rolleyes:

Yeah. He had a long bout of vomiting and/or diarrhea. Took me a while to figure out he just can't digest kibble anymore. Now that he's eating raw, he's doing MUCH better. But still needs to pack some weight back on. And his back legs are pretty wobbly these days. :(
