Maggie Update 4

Just heard from the vet with all of Maggies test results and biopsy's.

Addisons came back negitive, yea!

Bone from the extraction site showed some very mild inflamation, vet said she probably had some bacterial infection. But she's been on antibiotics for her tooth so that should be almost gone now.

Biopsy's from her stomach and intestines showed some mild inflamation, diagnoising her with mild IBD and Food allergies.

They want to contiune on with the antibiotics for her stomach, pepcid twice daily and switch to the Hills z/d when she starts to eat her normal volume of food. No steroids at this time unless her food intake doesn't increase by monday.

She's eating right now but about 1/3 cup daily, she normal eats 2/3 cup daily with snacks at noon and night.

She is taking her pills easily now, before she would fight it but now a little PB and she takes them with no problem. Which is a relief.

She lost a lot of weight and it's going to take probably a good month for her to get back to normal but hopefully we are on our way. Yesterday she actually gave my hand a good tongue washing, that hasn't happened in over a week now so she must be feeling a little better (she loves to groom daddy and I).
