Leland's Life

And the Adventures Awaiting Lucian Reign

Visit with the vet

Filed under: Uncategorized — leland4 at 12:38 am on Monday, June 23, 2014

Well, Leland saw our local vet on Friday.  The vet is concerned with the amount of weight he’s lost.  He’s lost a lot of muscle in his head to the point where the skull structure is visible.  He took him off the Thyrozine and ran a full body function panel of blood work.  We should have the results tomorrow.  We also took in a sample of urine and the dip stick indicated blood in the urine but when the vet viewed the sample under a microscope he could not see any red blood cells.  Leland has been through the ringer and I’m surprised how he keeps on going.  The vet gave us some medication to try and stimulate his appetite which I can’t say I’ve seen any change.  He barely ate much yesterday.  This morning he did eat some bacon and egg but it’s still not enough to help him get his strength up.  He ate some pork chop this evening but not all of it.  On a positive note he has figured out how to get himself up off the floor and he’s getting around on his own much better.  We just need to get this eating thing under control and stop all this weight loss…(he weighed approximately 76 lbs. Friday down from 86.5 lbs on 6/11/14).  Here are some pics of him enjoying some time outside yesterday…it was unusually cool for June.











Yea…my staples are out!

I finally got my staples removed yesterday…it’s been a LONG 14 days.  The doc says I still can’t lick so mom and dad still get on me when I sneak in a lick.  My incision has healed up nicely and thankfully I’m not as itchy.  Mom got the camera out again and got some pics of me hoarding my favorite toys.









Can’t a dog get some sleep

My mom drives me crazy with that camera.  Can’t she see I’m trying to get some sleep here…it’s 2am!  I really make it tough sometimes for her to get a good shot…lol!






12 days post-amputation

Here’s some pics of Leland.  He’s healing up nicely and he’s getting things figured out on how to get around on 3 legs.  He’s still having some trouble getting up off the floor so we’re still helping him up with the belly sling but I’m sure he’ll get that part figured out eventually.  Since Leland’s come home my husband and I have been sleeping on our mattress on the floor with him.  He’s gotten really good about getting off the mattress and hopping around the room.  Leland has really surprised us on how well he’s coping with his new life and we’re so proud of him.P6141004
