Lucky is not doing so well. And how this all started is beyond bizarre.

I woke up to find him stuck in a laundry basket. Seriously. He was unable to get out of it, as it was right side up, and stressing out. I got him out and he appeared fine. A few hours later he started to have trouble walking and then began to behave abnormally. I rushed him to the Emergency Pet Clinic and lets just say I had an emotional hell. The pet clinic is much more expensive than Becker's, but Becker's been getting some heat and I don't want to go near there until they've long established themselves in more reputable terms. I had them do a blood work, even though I feel he aggravated his spine (he had an injury in March), because he's on medication that can over per-long use can cause his liver to fail. It came back just within the normal limits, which was surprising with how much he gets but he does take milk thistle to help his liver. A few things may 'possibly' indicate other diseases or cancers but they were low enough not to really draw flags. His kidneys were also doing fine, just a bit high on levels. He was dehydrated so they put him on fluids for 4 hours and gave him a steroid shot. If he does not do better I am frightened of what I might have to decide.

Seriously. It took them almost 2 weeks and me calling three times to get them to fax refills on lucky's meds. I was like finally!!!! Then I looked at the approved amount and I wonder... wtf.... He needs 60 pain pills, NOT 30!!!! He takes them twice a freaking day!! ARGH!!!!

-head hits desk-

I didn't discover this until after work and the vet closed by then.

After $500 Yoko is home, has a bandage foot and meds with two vet visits in the future in followups. Hopefully she'll behave or I'll have to take her back to get new bandages to cover her surgery stuff. There is a constant prediction, change as to when, suppose to rain in the next 72 hours, so she's going to be walking with a bag around her foot, hahaha, I am so taking a video of that.

My weekend is of cleaning, yoko, and a paper. Joy. Thank god its a long weekend.

Its a rainy day today, its been raining none stop since about 4am this morning. I had just taken Yoko and Lucky to the vet for a quick check up and getting meds for the sores developing on Lucky's gums. I was lifting Lucky into the back of my car in the rain when he decides TO PEE, and there for, ON ME!!! Thank god I follow a rule of thumb, never wear nice clothes when taking Lucky to the vet! After putting him in the back of the car I go inside the vet and they kindly give me hand sanitizer and towels for my peed on arm and hand. Head home, get the dogs out of the car, washed my hands and arm with Dawn, and here I am.

Poor little Yoko, she has to wear a purple boot for the next 48 hours and when I'm not able to keep an eye on her a shield collar so she can't get at her foot from now to the next week. She apparently cut her foot right inbetween the toes, however its already pretty much healed quickly, however her licking has irritated it pretty bad hence the boot with antibiotics and the shield collar. She's on antibiotics and steriods for the next week to help it. But for the first time in a long time she didn't need a shot! So she was very happy, perfectly fine with the boot! We went to Petsmart for dog food. I didn't want to have to drive home, put the shield collar on her, then go to Costco. Yeah I'll end up almost paying twice as much as usual for food, but its okay. She was having a really good day. Usually she freaks out in the car. Not today. Usually she's scared to death of all the people and dogs at Petsmart. Not today. So even with my over all money spent on her was just under a $100 I'm okay with it.   

I so love my new phone! Everything on it is awesome, including the camera! Below is a picture of Yoko all snuggled up on my bed.

I'm starting to wonder if Lucky gets his revenge from going to the vet by passing gas more than usual. Yoko has officially snubbed me. How do I know? She's avoided trying to get on my bed when I'm on it with my laptop. Usually she's trying to curl up next to me. This doesn't surprise me in the least with both of them, they were too well behaved at the vet. No tugging from either of them and Yoko didn't try to get under the chair this time.
