The anti-depressant meds are working

Wanted to paw a quick update.

Though they won't cure her issue (still not diagnosed), Tasha's pills appear to be working in regards to her appetite, breathing and general mood. When we gave her the first pills yesterday, she became more like her normal self - very observant, interested in food and she was breathing easier. OK, she was flying high and very,very focused on our every move. It is almost spooky the intensity in her eyes. The vet did warn us that the pills may result in anxiety so we may need to reduce the dosage.

We are concerned that she hasn't poo'd for two days but since she hasn't eaten much for a few days that could be expected. Dad is staying home with her tomorrow to keep an eye on her.

We can't say enough about the love and concern that everyone has expressed. It means so much to us to have someone out there that understands and doesn't think that we're crazy to be so upset about her situation. Some of our friends and family are concerned but not with the understanding that has been expressed by our DWB family.

We'll try to get around to everyone's blog to comment on your posts soon. We've met a few new friends via the recent comments and would love to get to know you. Yes, we do kind of need the distraction that would provide.

Love to all and kisses to your pups,

Glad to hear she's more comfortable and still hoping for good news. Mom's been struggling with the time issue and has fallen a bit behind on reading blogs too.

Hey Tasha,
Glad to hear the pills are helping you out a bit. We sure have our paws crossed for you & hope for the best on your test results. Mama is already teary eyed, she hates it when doggies are sick. We hope your belly isn't too cold. Too bad they had to shave so much of your hair away. We hope you have a good week!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
