Chance got an excellent report from the vet yesterday! I'm still beaming! We took him for a heartworm test and an overall assessment. He did so good, I still can't believe it!
My-must-wear-a-muzzle-dog-because-he-hates-to-be-touched, got a blood draw for the heartworm test, as well as a blood count. He was checked over. Heart and lungs good. Weight is steady. All good signs. He's been having a reoccurring nose bleed after a fall a couple of weeks ago. It happened to be bleeding during the exam, and when our vet checked him over, she concurred that it was just a broken blood vessel in his snout that may come and go intermittently. Then he had his nails trimmed, something he's NEVER had done before EVER and was she said he just stood the while they did it and was excellent for the procedure. The vet even took off his muzzle! WOW!! So cool!
And I was a nervous wreck about taking Chance to the vet. I didn't think it was a good idea and was completely against it. I didn't want to put Chance through the anxiety and pain, especially with a muzzle. But now I'm glad we did because not only did Chance pass with flying colors, it show he's in better health than we thought he was or could be at this point in time. Something must be working! Now we just need to get more weight on him. Chance is allowed to eat anything he wants (as long as it is safe for dogs) and as much as he wants.
I would have never guessed we would be this far into Chance's cancer with him doing and basically feeling so well. I have been blown away how physically well he is and believe me, every night we thank God he is still here!
Have a fantastic weekend!
