Well, I have no excuse, but lots of reasons! To start with, Nina, my once 4 pound Yorkie, started having seizures last year when she was pregnant with a litter of 5 puppies. If I had been a more responsible breeder, and thank heavens I know better NOW, I would have done some bloodwork BEFORE breeding her. She has a problem with her liver, and I am very lucky that having the puppies did not kill her.
After Nina’s puppies were born, her seizures continued. I got her spayed, and they still continued. The seizures would happen every few months, and would last a few minutes. She would wake up disoriented and then would figure out where she was. I could usually tell when the seizures were going to happen. She could become very clingy a day or 2 before they happened. One day, she had 2 seizures within a few hours. So, we went to see a specialist.
I can’t believe the amount of time we have spent at the vets’ offices, getting bloodwork done, and running around picking up prescriptions. Bless her little heart. She is gaining weight, a side effect of the medication. In the meantime, our 10 year old Maltese decided to jump off the bed and break his leg. A surgery and a cast later….. geez. Life happens…. so I have been “off the grid.” However, I have made a LOT more cool collars, and I have kept up on my essential oil research. I will be sharing and posting those soon. I am still trying to decide how to categorize the blogs….. and also trying out some new things. I have been feeding my Ridgeback raw, then I stopped, and I am about to go back to that…. such a woman…. always changing my mind.
