Missing that little face so much!
Video chats with Laly are not very satisfying as she’d rather sleep than bother to listen to me 🤷♀️
She’s finally getting out of her self-imposed hibernation now that the sun is shining and the temperature rising back in France and enjoys playing with her toys!
Anyhow, also thinking of my lady cat warrior Misty, going on her 16th year and starting to show signs of her old age...keep being your grumpy old self for many years please!
Cindy update! She has a little bit of nasal discharge and a disturbing cough. Everything suggests a basic respiratory infection and she's being treated accordingly. She had a nebulizer treatment done and she's now on steroids and antibiotics.
We don't have any reason to believe this would be distemper. But after going through what we've been through with the Euro pups, we're nervous. Can you blame us? We're leaning towards using the same NDV Serum that we used on the puppies that seems to have helped them tremendously. It's most effective if used before serious symptoms hit -- that also makes it the most difficult to determine its efficacy. :-/ It bothers us because there's no real science to justify the usage of it. Behind the scenes here at MuttLove, we're pretty sciency. We want to see those peer-reviewed journals.
But on the other hand, we know this stuff doesn't do any harm and with distemper, things are dicey. Why not try everything, even if you can't back it up with published papers? 🤷
So for now, Cindy will be spending time in her own little bathroom sanctuary and we are crossing our fingers that she improves quickly. At the moment, she has no interest in being outside of the kennel. She feels pretty cruddy and kennels are usually safe-feeling places for dogs. As she gets better, we'll need to find a new foster for her that can accommodate her outside of a quarantine bathroom and we're hoping the new accommodations can include a furever family. 😍
So if you're interested in a teeny, tiny baby (she's less than 9 lbs and full-grown), keep an eye on our page. She'll probably need at least about 3 weeks before we start home shopping for her.
Jake’s recovery is going well so far. On Thursday he had the top part of his leg bone removed to allow his body to form a near normal joint with 90% function. Jake was involved in a car accident which crushed his pelvis and femur. This boy’s recovery journey has only just started, with the vet ordering 2 months of strict rest. So far, just over $1250 of a $2000 target has been raised to cover the cost of Jake’s surgery. If you would like to donate to NQAR and help cover the cost of Jake’s bills, please follow the link in our bio. Thank you to all who have donated and continue to support NQAR. We are incredibly grateful!
