No, I'm not actually flying. I'm having a laser treatment at the Rehab Vet. It really helps my achy joints. Plus, I'm walking in the underwater treadmill. I love it! Last Wednesday, I couldn't wait to get in there so I marched right past everyone up the ramp and stopped right in front of the door! Everyone there gives great ear scratches and tummy rubs...and the treats are good too. Let's face it, I'm not a spring chicken, err, puppy anymore. I turned 12 in April. Thankfully, I'm pretty healthy except for my arthritis. Last year, mom and dad tried to try new medications for my arthritis, and took me to the Rehab Vet for a shot of a medication called Adequan. Most dogs don't have a problem with it, but I did...all over the rug...on multiple occasions. Mom and dad were more upset that I got sick from it, because they felt guilty that I got sick, not because I made a mess on the rug. I kissed them when they were cleaning the rug to let them know I knew they weren't mad at me. It got so bad they had to take me to our regular vet for medication to calm my stomach. On the way back home, I fell getting into the car, and hurt myself. Since then, I have not wanted to get into the car. But last Wednesday, when I found out we were going to the Rehab vet, I almost made in the car myself! I whacked poor mom when trying to jump,while she was trying to lift my behind into the car, and she got a nose bleed. Thankfully, she wasn't upset with me.
Since that happened last year, mom and dad called a nice lady, S.to do Reiki therapy. She comes once a month. It's very helpful and I feel very energetic during my treatment and have a good nap afterwards. Mom and dad notice I walk better after her treatment.
