POTP for Bart

Hi.  Ruby here. I know we haven't been blogging much due to well, whatever. The Publicist really should be looking for another job - or maybe she's found one and has been ignoring her responsibilities to us.  In any event, I come to you today to ask for you to send my brother Bart some POTP.



He's had some arthritis sickies in his hips for the past several months, butt he seems to have taken a bit of a turn to the south.  Even Dr. Sarah was surprised by the loss of muscle tone in his body.


She did a heavy-duty acupuncture treatment on him today, loaded him up on adequan and did some blood work to make sure nothing else is going on.  He just keeps saying, "I've fallen and I can't get up!"  We could really use your positive thoughts. (Because The Publicist is a bit of a wreck.) I'll let you know when the results come back.  Also, we'll fill you in on our recent adventures!

Thanks.  
btw - he LOVES acupuncture...

PeeeeeeS:  Don't tell him I wrote this post - he's very proud and would be very mad at me if he knew I said anything.  Thanks again.  

Love,

Ruby

Bless you Ruby for letting us know but also seeking to save Bart's pride. We will send our strongest healing vibes across the Pond and the continent (we think that's quicker and safe than going via Russia and the Pacific NW), and wish that all the treatment helps dear Bart get more comfy.

Lots and lots and lots of love and healing and paw massages to you my buddy Bart. Arthritis can really take a toll on an old puperoo but I bet with all that awesome therapy, your strength and vitality will return in no time.

Ruby, I'm glad you told us! Oh, I will be thinking about Bart and his aching hips. I never knew they did acupuncture on you canines....hmmm interesting and I hope it helps him. Tell The Publicist to call me or email me if I can be of some help. What, I don't know, but maybe she just needs to talk about it to someone other than you, Ruby. Get better Bart! Ann TBL

Morgan has actually built up some muscle and her vet is amazed. She swims and does some running each day. She also gets some supplements to help the arthritis pain. Acupuncture worked great for Bentley so Morgan might try that too.

Ruby and Penny said...

Sorry that Bart has the arthritis sickies. Sending him tonnes of doxie feel better rayz.

Hugs.

Love Ruby & Penny

A human type handheld heating massager helped Quinn a lot between his K Laser treatments. Just work on the hips for 5-10minutes and it helps loosen things up a bit especially fist thing in the morning or after a long nap.

Sending White Dog healing energies and gentle woos of comfort and understanding.
