Prayers sent your ...
Sorry to hear you pup is having health troubles Don. I had to put down my baby girl in August because she was suffering. I know its one of the hardest things to do, even when you know its coming. My lab was hit by a car when he was 1 (hes 7 now) and had to have his leg put back together with screws and fishing line (basically) and I know there will be a time down the road that that injury is going to put too much strain on his life too.
On a lighter note, Budweiser is looking for the dog they lost back in '89
Hope you can keep your pup happy and comfy for a little while longer, and be strong enough to do whats right if the time comes you cant anymore.
Great news everyone! Thanks to what is arguably the finest veterinary hospital in the world, Jerry is doing fantastic. He responded literally instantly to the medications, no more coughing and only one fainting spell. This was due to chasing a ground hog and he didn't go all the way down, or out.
I had him back to Virgina Tech two weeks ago and his heart had reduced significantly. One lung was nearly completely clear and the other was noticeably improved. They increased his meds slightly and we go back today.
Whatever you guys are doing for Jerry, please keep it up!
