I have been consumed with our dog again. Bodie has been sick since Saturday. I took him to the Vet on Monday with a fever and other symptoms, and they treated him for a bacterial infection. The antibiotics didn’t seem to be helping. He was lethargic and ate nothing from Monday to Thursday and so I took him back today. They ran some blood tests and diagnosed him with pancreatitis. He is staying overnight at the Vet to have IV fluids and other medicines to help him get his strength back. If he is better tomorrow, he will get to come home.
Bodie is 13 years old and we would like to have him around for a couple more years. He has been making great progress with being more mobile with his gimp leg. I would really love to have him happy and healthy and enjoying the outdoors like a beagle should.
I would appreciate your prayers and thoughts for Bodie. It would be a blessing to have him come home tomorrow and on his way to recovery.
I already miss his velvety ears. 😦
Here are some photos from this week.
