In my last blog about her, she had gone to the vet and there was a lot of bad news, such as, she had too much protein for how small she was and it was causing problems, she was to fat and her heart wasn't pumping right and her throat was also collapsing which was causing her to cough a lot.
Now for the update. She is doing much much better! we switched dog foods for a lower protein one, we cut back on the treats, but she still gets 1 a day to take with her meds from the vet (she has to take prescription pills now, for her heart) we cut back even more on giving her scraps of table food, so she lost about 4 pounds. her energy has changed drastically, I didn't even know it was an issue, I thought she was just sluggesh because she is old, but no, it was because she was too fat (shame on me and my family)
you should see how hyper and energetic she is now! she's more like a 4 year old pup then a 14 year old
she's still coughing, but it's not as bad. Boy does she have an appetite now that she doesn't get craps all day
