Quick Update

I had a very bad night on Thursday so the Duchess took me to the vet on Friday for Xrays and blood work. The good news is that my Xrays were great and my blood came back normal also. There is a slight abnormality in the urine test but the vet seems to think it will go away when I have been on my new food for a few weeks. So I AM OK! I just have a sensitive stomach and have to eat some special food. Isn't that wonderful? Whew!

The Duchess forgot to take Bear's water away last night so she could get a concentrated "sample" from him today. So Bear's test will have to wait until Tuesday when the vet is open late. But we know for sure that he doesn't have diabetes. That was our biggest worry, so we are very thankful for that. His blood tests were normal and the vet thinks maybe he has some kind of urinary tract infection or maybe he is just aging. The "concentrated" test should give us the results.

So now you are all up to date with everything I know! Thank you for your well wishes.



  1. I am so happy for you and wish Ben the best from me.

  2. That sure is good news about the tests. We were thinking diabetes too and hoping it wasn't that. Emma Rose, we are so glad your tests came back fine. Holly dog and some of our cats are on sensitive stomach food too. It's not bad at all. We hope the news on Tuesdays test is very good!

  3. Well, I do hope the sensitive stomach food help Emma Rose..Chance has a sensitive stomach too. He eats a bit of Science Diet canned all mixed in with his Lamb and Rice..which is a mix of Science Diet and Purina seems to work the best for him..he doesn't vomit often..but he does get diahrea ..he did vomit and get pancreatitis once from something he ate in the woods..a bird I think..YUK. Chance gets limited extra treats.. he does like Bacon Treats..he gets them ONLY if he has finished his bowl of food.. he really has to be coaxed to eat sometimes.. go figure.
    I hope all Bears tests come out ok.. we will be thinking of him:)

    Thinking of you!

We are missing those camping weekends....anywhere would be great!! Sending you lots of big hugs!!
