I have been trying to deal with just a couple medical issues at a time with the boys. HA! At least the more serious issues.
Now that Tuck is OK liver-wise, he has another issue I need to deal with. Thankfully not life-threatening, but a frustrating problem- as those of u that have pets with allergies can attest to! Tuck has been licking his legs/hips, body ever since he started the levo-thyroxine (thyroid med) a few months ago. I have said something to the vet and the neuro, but with all his allergies, everyone assumed it was environmental. Last night he just was going crazy with the licking (and making me crazy too--poor Tuck). So, I picked up the phone and left a VM for his dermatologist/allergist, explaining what has been happening. So, what we are doing (approved by the vet), is taking him off the thyroid medication for abt 2 weeks (until he sees the allergist at the end of the month).
If in the 2 weeks the licking resolves, or at least really improves, we will know he is allergic (possibly to the dye or a filler), and will hunt for a thyroid medicine that doesn't have dye in it. If there is no change in the licking, then it's most likely something in his food. A food allergy will be tough. With Tuck being on Potassium Bromide, I have to find a food with a similar chloride level as he is on now. I also want a food without any fish/fish oil in it...and that is hard to find. Tuck is fine with fish, but Justice isn't, and since there could be a mistake happen with who gets what food, or some dropped--I want to protect Justice too.
Justice had some head bobbing this eve. He is doing OK now.
Tuckie is at TWO DAY'S!!!
Hi Debbie, I am glad u are visiting Amy. I know a couple weeks ago, there were a couple things with jack u wanted her to check. I am glad at least on the "outside" that Jack looks good, and we will pray all is well on the "inside" too.

Hi Debs, I am so sorry this is Spikes 2 year RB day. I know how much u miss him.
Thanks for checking in on the boys today.
Hugs to u and the kids. I know Spike is watching over u.
Vicky lost her Moose today. My heart breaks for her...
Thanks so much angels, for making sure Tuck and Justice are safe.
I am so happy Tucker's test results were normal and that Justice is now fully sponsored, that is so great!!!!!!!!!!.....Now I'm just waiting for no seizures for both of them...
I forgot to tell you, Eliza my oldest daughter has decided to study zoology. She will be going to the University of Ky or Western Kentucky University this fall. She wants to specialize in big cats. While I like cats, I'm more of a dog person, so she didn't get that from me. We are going to visit a big cat santuary before she starts schools, I think they have one here.
and here is a new picture of Keira, we just took it last night. You guys take care and I'll check in on you guys again.
Talk to you soon
