Wordless Wednesday: Mad Scientist

Dada’s Note: Dennis’s IBD crisis from over the summer appears to be over; he is eating his hydrolyzed food more or less consistently and has gained back most of the weight he lost, and his fur — which had become patchy again — is growing in nicely. We’ve been able to wean him off some of the medications he started taking during the flare-up. At this point his biggest problem is his hip dysplasia, which has been described as “end stage”, meaning he basically has no cushioning left in his hips at all. Surgery isn’t an option, but he has been going for weekly cold laser and acupuncture (the picture above is from one of his sessions), and we’re looking into some other treatments that have been suggested. We’re also trying to find a place where he can do the underwater treadmill without having to see scary dogs through the transparent glass. Dennis offers a big “thank yoo to all my nice reederz!!!” for their purrs, tail wags, and Power of the Paw!

    How we love hearing that Dennis is doing better with his tummy issues. Hopefully the treatments will help his hips. That can’t be much fun for him. Would a doggy wheelchair be an option? And Dennis, you really rock those shades.

  6. You look so cool in those special sunglasses, Dennis. Lexi used to love getting her massages and acupuncture. The vet tech fed her treats the whole time! Happy water-milling (as soon as your Dada finds you a private gym.)
