Zoey is having some bad back problems.....I can't say anymore.Zoeyseems to be feeling better so fraying is more difficult for her. A friends dog was having similar problems so hopefully it was the tick disease that caused her leg weakness .....back to the vet later this week and also figure out thyroid .......

Sending prayers for Zoey. I hope that you can get her problems under control with crate rest and anti-inflammatories.

Prayers to you Becky. Remember if they see us upset, they think that something is wrong. I know it is hard, but try to just be happy in your tone of voice and act like it is "no big deal". You will get through it, we are all keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Adding my prayers for Zoey. I don't mean to alarm you, but keep an eye on her gums, tick diseases can cause IMHA, if her gums appear pale or white, get her to the vet asap.

On the positive side, years ago the dog my parents adopted came heartworm positive, she recovered thru that, then a few months later was diagnosed with Rocky Mountain Tick Disease, recovered from that, and lived another very happy 11 years with them. Zoey has the best thing going for her, her wonderful mommy who will get her thru this.

It has become quite apparent to me that I am always tagging along after Sandy and "seconding" her posts. :nw But, she is again absolutely correct. :hp Please watch Zoey's gums or if her appetite should slow down, please take her to an IMHA knowledgeable Veterinarian right away. :hp

Congratulations on your newborn! :Clap

My best wishes and my prayers for you and your Zoey. :hp I certainly hope that she will not develop IMHA. I don't know, but sometimes the two illnesses can sometimes be related. UGH!

Just heard from vet...Zoey's thyroid is a little low...but we'll wait on that for now untill this other stuff is ok....or should I worry about that now too? other than that blood work looks great! but Zoey isn't fat so is thyroid test accurate?
