Poor Charlie is trembling at the vet, and he needs our help! Please consider sharing or donating to help this sweet boy who's in a lot of pain 😞 Thank you everypawdy!
Checkers is at the vet and is trembling in fear ☹️ His throat has what's called mycoplasma bacteria and we've been on a very long course of antibiotics hoping that will help and then the last 2 months or so we have getting him steroid injections to help with the throat. He's been doing very very well as long as the steroid injection is on board! The problem is it only lasts barely 12 to 14 days 😰
So about the 12th or 13th day I will start to see a change in him and you can tell his throat is hurting again. I would describe it as having a sore throat times about 100 if you can even imagine! 😖 He begins not to be able to groom himself because his throat hurts so bad and he cannot eat because of the pain… Which usually results in at least a 1-2 pound or more weight loss. So as long as the steroid is working he's perfect but I don't think steroids are a long-term solution. Sigh.
Today we also realized that he's getting stomatitis in his mouth... which he develops once his throat starts acting up again. It's just a viscous cycle unfortunately. I guess I will do lots of praying and soul-searching to see what the best course of action is… We are trying a little bit different medicine regimen to see if maybe that will help… As our goal is to go longer periods of time without the need for medicine. As with any medical treatment...it does costs money as many of you know and it's hard to know when to draw the line, so to speak 😞. Hoping and praying we can find something that works! •
