Convalescing   4 comments

Thunder! Everyone to your thunderstorm positions! (you weren’t planning to get up anytime soon Mommy, were you?)

Rocky is convalescing well. Vet sent him home with 7 medications, some to be given an hour before eating and the rest to be taken with meals. Most are only once or twice a day, but one GI protectant is given 3 times per day. Vet also gave him some anti-anxiety meds for the storms expected this weekend. And after Mommy said Friday overnight got rough, Vet gave him some extra pain killers for the next couple days too. And some prescription bland food which he just loves.

After checking the weather report, Mommy moved supper up an hour tonight so he would be fully fed and properly medicated before the predicted storms roll through.

Selena has been taking it all in stride, though she does insist she deserves a mid-day snack like Rocky gets. And as you can see, Rocky has been teaching her how to fear thunder. I swear he learned this from day camp. They weren’t afraid of storms when they first came home!

Frankly, she’s more stressed about the thunder than he is right now. He’s well out-of-it. Not a care in the world.

The grand-pawents generously offered to dogsit on Monday while Mommy figures out how to juggle the midday medications with her work schedule. After Monday we will be back to two meals a day, so there’s that. And it’s only for the next 10 days, so we’ll get by.

  1. We always say the dogs only learn the bad things from one another, and it sounds like Rocky learned to be afraid of storms just like you said. So glad he is home and hoping the meds do the trick. Please give him and Selena a kiss from me.

  3. So glad to hear you are better! Sorry about the storms, though. We get them as well and Andy hates them. His Thundershirt does help. Ruby could care less.


  4. Glad Rocky is doing ok.
