Shadow Update

Happy to say I have GOOD news to report!

Shadow had her follow-up ultrasound two weeks ago. The abscesses in her liver that I told you about last month are gone. The nodule on her spleen remains the same, unchanged. 

So, the vet said we’re going to leave Shadow on the Denamarin long term. The Denamarin makes her tummy feel “weird” for a few hours, so she eats very little – if any – breakfast.  I’ve had to resign myself to that fact and just give her lunch instead of breakfast. 

Unrelated, she’s been shaking her head off and on for the past couple of weeks. Her right ear seems to have an excessive wax buildup on the inner flap and close to the canal. I clean it up with a warm, wet gauze pad every few days. Tomorrow morning I’m taking her to see Doc, just to be sure there’s no infection causing that waxy mess. I don’t think there is – it doesn’t smell bad, just “waxy” – but want to be sure. Shadow’s ears have always been clean, and free of infection since she was a puppy. I want to keep it that way as she gets older.

    I am just so happy for Shadow’s good news! Sheba had an ear infection once when she was younger, and I had to clean her ears quite often after that – they were always a mess. But we at least never had an infection after that first time!

      Poor Callie used to get ear infections when she was young too, until the vet tried a different protocol. I wish I could remember what it was; but it got rid of that last infection lickety-split. And she never had another one after that.
