    DefaultMy pup is finally feeling better

    Poor Sundance has had a rough time lately...he's been on cortisone and another medication for the past 10 days to treat his allergy flare-up. He had been biting and licking his paws, even figuring a way around the ecollar, and made himself raw and bloody. It was awful.

    The corisone made him soooo lethargic. I had to cut way back on our exercise because he just didn't have the energy. Even on his playdate last weekend, he had to stop and rest pretty frequently. We reduced the cortisone dosage earlier than planned yesterday because he was losing control of his bladder, even though we were letting him out to pee more often because he was urinating more frequently.

    But today...we went for our normal long walk, Sundance did a bunch of retrieves, and even butt-tucked around the yard, growling and grunting to himself as usual. Peeing and drinking the normal amount, too. It's so good to have my energetic baby back!

    We're keeping a close eye on him to see if the itchies return. He's on an elimination (fish and potato) diet, so we'll see if it's food-related. I'm kind of hoping it is; sounds like that will be easier to diagnose and control.

    I'm looking forward to taking him for a long walk along the water tomorrow. ;D
