It’s taken a little while for me to be able to write this post as I wouldn’t have been able to read what I was typing through the tears. I’m not after sympathy, I just wanted to write about Jed to be able to look back in the future to remember his antics and also to write about the times of his illness, in the hopes it will help someone who’s having similar difficulties with their beloved pet.
Yesterday, Jed had to go for his second Melanoma vaccine, which would have gone better if I’d given him his sedative pills a couple of hours earlier. As usual, he became suspicious of the machinery etc., so had to be muzzled. The vet said he was too clever for his own good and knew what was coming. Poor Jed!
One of the lady’s on reception sent me a photo they took of Jed when he was sent home a week after his operation. He jumped up on to the seat next to me and looked so happy to be going home. As you can see.
Well, two weeks after coming home, we went back to have his mouth checked out. And I was really worried he’d have to have it repaired but, thankfully, the hole wasn’t too big and Prof. Bacon said it may well heal on it’s own.
His Melanoma vaccine has been ordered and paid for.
For some time now, I’d noticed Jed’s breath wasn’t smelling as fresh as it usually does. Well, at least as fresh as a dog’s breath can be. I mentioned it to Eileka the vet who treats our other rottie Diesel with acupuncture for his arthritis and she said I need to get him checked out.
