Thank You everyone
I was really dragging my feet bringing him in... I guess we are just never prepared for that... But, it was a good thing & he's still with us!
He has diabetes so will need 2 shots a day. The med is $72 but i was able to get a Walmart brand for $25! Same company that makes it. I guess his hair loss which has been really thin for years is a fungal overgrowth. So im to lather him with Salsun Blue & leave it on him for 15 mins, once a week. Also an enzym problem so a supplement for that. He's been on steroids for 5 yrs. He also told me how much tramadol & aspirin to give him. He's old & hurts.
We have a really good vet. He wouldn't be around if it weren't for them... He's had tumors removed, teeth pulled, ect. But i could never give up on him, he's so worth it...
The vet talked with me about him not having much time left... I told him I've been preparing myself for it... When its time, it's time...
Brend- I'm sorry for your loss... They could never be replaced... I think in a few years I will get a little dog. We always have big dogs. I couldnt replace shadow but i have room in my heart for another one day. We have another one that's 9, he's our big grump but we love him
Got him when he was around 6.
Anyhow, Thank You again everyone for your support! I was really prepared for the worst so happy with how it turned out
