Two sick dogs - Update

Hi All,
This is Ailsa and Brodie's Skin Sister.  Thank you all for thinking of him and posting some big barks on his blog.  Mum and I felt that you would like an update.

Ailsa is getting better.  It appears that her tablets are having an effect and she has perked up.  What really perked her up was Brodie coming home.

Yes he came home today.  The Vet left a drip in and showed us how to control it so that he could be comfy at home.  He is a tiny bit better, but we still don't know what's wrong.  He's had blood taken, but it's a weekend, so it won't go the the lab until Monday.  I hope that he makes it till then.  We have all spent time on the couch with him.  I'm sure that he just wants us all to leave him alone so that he can have some peace!
Just home and comfy on the computer room couch

In His garden with Burty taking care of him (Mum holding the drip has nothing to do with it!)

In his bed.  Dad rigged up a rail for his drip between two bookshelves. Mum and I found some caging to keep him safe tonight

The special Calanoni that I made for him.  Pasta filled with Lamb.  He wanted more 

Tonight we've been back to the Vet for his 12 hour check.  Brodie managed to pull his drip out as we got him out of the car and the vet could not re-insert it as his blood pressure is to low.  He's had more drugs, so we're just keeping him comfortable at home.  Mum couldn't bare to have him all alone in a cold steal cage for another night.

Brodie has another appointment at the Vets tomorrow morning at 09:30.  I hope he makes it.

I had better go.

The Skin Sista!


  1. Thanks for the pupdate. Good for Alisa to be doing better. Paws crossed for Brodie. We are glad he is home even if it is a lot of work - he will be happier there than in the hospital. We will cross our paws for Monday to bring some answers and a treatment that will help Brodie get better.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
