Yay! You sound like you have some great vets you work with. I'm so glad you're feeling better!
Maggie's mom reflected our thoughts exactly; I don't think there's a pawrent here who hasn't beaten themselves up for letting their Tripawd have "too much" fun. You're in good company, and by sharing experiences here we can all learn from eachother about how to avoid this situation, so don't feel bad OK?
Rest up Hunter!

Our Super Dog Hunter crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on a beautiful summer day in July, just 3 days shy of his 10th Birthday. He gave us everything since he was 8 weeks old. Hunter was a 14 month warrior of OS. We LOVE and MISS him every day.

Hooray for the upswing!
Sending good thoughts for continued improvement!
Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!
