Wiggle - Day 396

Sir H has been to the vets this evening for his check-up. Malcolm was very pleased with how he is doing. Sir H has been rather perky, especially after having been so poorly on Friday. He's eating better now and even ate the rice in his chicken dinner this evening!

On the way to the vets, we stopped off at Maude Heath so the boys could have a walk. Sir H pottered about, quite happily:

Wiggle had a great time running around, chasing after his ball:

Sir H stopped for a lie down:

But of course Wiggle didn't have time to stop and take in the scenery!

Wiggle stopped to catch his breath & of course to look handsome:

But after sitting briefly, he was up again, waiting for me to throw the ball:

Sir H found some good smells to sniff, while Wiggle was busy fetching his ball:

Sir H, still oblivious to Wiggle's activities!

Wiggle, happily running around still:

After all that activity, it was time to rest and in Sir H's case, a roll around:

Sir H, handsome old chap:

Wiggle, waiting for the ball while Sir H enjoys the fresh air and nice views:

Back to running around for Wiggle:

Sir H enjoyed another roll around on the grass:

But Wiggle was still running!

Sir H, looking happy!

Wiggle had one more throw of the ball before we headed off to the vets

Sir H still has the anti-biotics and while I was at the vet, I saw the xrays which were taken on Friday. His hips are really bad and I was shown there the arthritis "spurs" are. Once Sir H is back to full health, he can start on the Metacam, just to make sure that it doesn't upset his tummy but we were told it's ok to start the Tramadol painkillers this evening.

We'll go back in 2 weeks to see how Sir H is and whether the new medication is helping him, but fingers crossed, he'll be more comfortable now.

While I'm posting this entry, I just wanted to say thank you for all the kind messages for Sir H. It really is lovely to think that so many other people are wishing my boy well.

Sir H is looking so much better already.
Once the pain relief takes effect he will feel even more comfortable.
Sending hugs all round.
