Our Sweet Maisy


Our Maisy Moo was sick this week.  On Sunday she woke up feeling not herself and didn't want to play.  She seemed to be uncomfortable and was favoring either her back legs, back or belly.  After calling the emergency vet three times throughout the day, they finally told me to bring her in at 8pm since she wasn't getting any better.  She had a fever and they put her on antibiotics (although they weren't exactly sure what was wrong).


On Monday she was still not herself so I took her to our regular vet and they took some blood to have tested.  She still had a high fever so she was given antibiotics for the remaining 7 days. 


The blood work came back yesterday and it was all normal (yay!) so they think it may just be a virus that needs to run its course.  I don't know if she still has a fever but she seems to be close to normal and is wanting to play, run, and jump.  I'll keep her on the antibiotics until they run out and hope that this is behind us. 

Maisy is six years old and this was the first time we have had to take her to the vet because she was not feeling well.  Not something I want to go through again.  I felt so bad for her not being able to tell us what was wrong.

We are all glad that she is doing better!  :o)
