Sarge

Dear friends if you have moment would you  look up for Sarge.   I would be so grateful.  He has hip dysplasia and is struggling.   Had him to the vet yesterday afternoon (emergency) could not walk.   They gave him pain medication.  Saturday he will begin taking arthritis medicine...praying it works.

As so many of you know he is the "other Man" in my life.   He will be eleven in the fall.    Just not ready to let him go.


Thank you for letting me share this request.   Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.     God Bless!

  10. Definitely thinking of you and Sarge. I have a 15-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, and she's an integral part of our lives. I know you're probably exploring all avenues to make him more comfortable, and if you haven't already tried this, you might want to give a joint supplement like Cosequin a try (see what your vet says). Our dog used to limp quite often, and since she's been taking this, she no longer does.

  12. wow-would you believe your dogs have been on my mind lately? I've been missing my girl so much too, and I don't know just why, but you and your doggies were on my heart so much. Been wanting to email you, and have been rushed and preoccupied with health issues-life, etc. I will definitely pray...

  13. Oh dear, Debbie. Sarge is definitely in my prayers. We have a Bloodhound who also struggles with his back end. We don't know if it hip dysplasia or simple old age. He was a rescue and we didn't know his age but he is showing it and seems to be hurting. He also vomits a couple of times a week, which cannot be good. Other than getting up and sitting down, he doesn't seem to be in pain though...

    My prayers are that the medication helps to relieve Sarge's symptoms and that you have more years with him. Sending you both hugs from IL.

  14. Deb, you know it goes without saying I will be praying for Sarge.. This is one of the downsides of German Shepherds .. My daughter has raised 4 of them and 3 had this problem.. I know how much Sarge means to you and if not recovery at least some relief. Your vet will know what to do .. I'm so sorry for him..
    But sometimes God hears us, so lets hope so..
