I hate to have to give Jenny anything by mouth. I called the vet clinic at Gilbert today to see if she might need some antibiotics. She popped an abscess awhile back, & it is still oozing & occasionally bleeding a little bit. So they said to give her SMZ for 10 days. I always taste anything I give them, don't have to taste this stuff, I remember what it tastes like.............very VERY bitter......!!!! I know their taste buds are different than ours, otherwise they wouldn't think lemon rinds are a treat, but even making allowances for different taste, this stuff can't taste good.
I mixed it up with some molasses, stuck it in her mouth, plunged it in & she has a gift of being able to reject most of it. She doesn't make a big deal about it, the stuff just dribbles out of her mouth, doesn't matter if you hold her head up, or what you do, it doesn't go down her throat.........GRRRRRR..........!!!! We have 10 days twice a day to make this work, & I have a feeling we won't be feeling the "love" before it's over............!!!!! LOL
Heard from the other clinic about Gus' test for infection. He has staph & a couple of other bacterial infections I can't pronounce. So now besides getting Naxcel, he's going to also be getting Gentamicin for a few days. He is such a sweet boy about getting shots, of course he knows there is a animal cracker when it's over.
Tomorrow morning Missy is going to her Forever Home. We had just about finalized the hand over of her to a Great Dane Rescue up in the Phoenix area. But Mocha & Tucker's Mom decided she would like to give her a home, & has had Danes before. We won't even have to deliver her, Claude is coming thru here tomorrow morning on his way home to Las Cruces from Phoenix. I think she will be a great addition to their family.
TUCKER & MOCHA, THANKS JANUARY
This is a picture taken by Tucker & Mocha's mom. She said the hat originally was on Mocha, but if you'll notice there is a piece missing from the brim. Tucker took a bite out of it when it was on Mocha, & I guess when Mocha got hold of it again, she tore it up until it wasn't wearable anymore.
