Our Official Health Update
Posted by Ghenghis Khan
Thank you everyone for your concern about Francesca and Sharkey. It’s been rough around here lately. Even I, Ghenghis Khan, was caught limping around and when my blood was tested at the vet, it was discovered that I, too, have Lyme disease! Bloody ticks! So now we’re all taking medicine for one thing or another.
1 I've been reading all of the thoughtful comments left on the Daily Wag and so many are wondering how Francesca and Sharkey are doing so, I decided it was time for another Frenchie Health Update. I'll let the girls fill you in.
2 My leg with the dew claw removal is doing much better. I've been without the cone for a while now and have just a simple bandage. On Friday, I'll return to the vet for one last change of bandage and in a week, I should be all healed!
3 I'm so glad you're feeling better, Sharkey! I, on the other paw, still have my buttoned up eyelid and cone and will have both for another 3 weeks!
4 Yawn....I'm so tired of wearing this infernal thing!
5 I've learned how to drink water, eat, and sleep with the cone on, but I run into trouble when it comes to scratching myself. I want to scratch, but the darn thing just gets in the way!
6 Oh Franny, I don't think that's the way to do it! I know wearing the cone makes it hard but let me show you a better trick for scratching yourself.
7 Ready? Just roll yourself over...
8 ...and use the rough texture of the stone terrace to your advantage! Wiggle around on your back for a good scratch!
9 Okay, here I go!
10 If I just keep twisting, I think I can get that itch scratched!
11 Oh, there it is! That's the spot!
12 I think it's safe to say that Francesca and I are on the mend!
