Maggie is ADOPTED
Barbara has adopted
Maggie. She wants everyone to know that she has found a home and
that people need to adopt seniors, and that people do adopt
Maggie is doing very
well in her new home
January 2009 Update on Maggie..... just got off the phone with Dr. Darby.
Maggie is still growing cultures, and this time, the news is not
good. She is building up a resistance to just about every oral
antibiotic there is. This is so very upsetting. He is consulting
with another tech and she said that she would suggest going on an
inject able antibiotic twice a day for two weeks. This is called
Ceftiofur, which is a 3rd generation drug from penicillin. Jeannine,
I believe you will probably have heard of this. The tech's thought
is that we do this for two weeks, take another culture. We may be
able to take her down to 1 shot a day. By that time, the infection
may have reinvented itself again, if we have not cured her, and she
can start on the oral antibiotics once more. We are into the
heavy hitters now.
He wants me to bring her in tomorrow for another shot, Convenia,
that she had the last two times, as he has to order this drug. It
may take a week or so to come in.
I am so upset over this, words cannot express. I could just cry. It
is so unfair that she has to have this infection, and we just can't
get rid of it. She is a happy, vocal, lol little dog and I just love
her to pieces. Please say a pray that this will work for her. Our
main concern is that this "bug" will travel to an area that will
really hurt her and possibly kill her. Not a good day.
Foster mom Cindy.
is one very sweet, Yorkie girl, who is 9-11 years old and weighs
about 8#. Maggie is very food oriented and dances at meal time (or
if she even THINKS it might be meal time). Maggie also loves
attention. She will roll over to have her tummy petted and likes to
be carried, but only upside down like a baby. The more individual
attention Maggie receives, the happier she is. She does do very well
with other dogs though, so she does not need to be an only baby. The
open crate is still sometimes her comfort zone, but lately she has
been spending more time out in the open, curled up in a bed.
Maggie has been diagnosed with some significant liver issues. She
will be starting on medication and special food in the next few
days. She will most likely need to stay on this treatment plan the
rest of her life. She is spayed, negative for heartworms, and
up-to-date on all her vaccinations. During her dental, Maggie lost
the last few of her teeth, so her cute little tongue hangs out. This
does not affect her eating at all, though hard treats would
frustrate her. Soft liver treats and cheese flavored Pupcorn work
just great for her though!
Maggie is a very smart girl and learned about the doggie door within
a day or two. She normally uses it, but will occasionally have an
accident. Usually when someone else does and she gets confused. When
the weather is bad (usually too hot), Maggie just prefers to stay
inside and wear her panties.
