NIPPER UPDATE #2


Isn't he precious?

Want to play rope?

All smiles


Several of you have asked me lately how Nipper is doing so I thought I'd give you a brief update.


I took Nipper to the vet last Friday for a re-check on his head and to have his liver enzymes tested. Nipper has had a liver problem for several years and I have to have his enzymes tested every few months. He got a really great report. Dr. Moore said the place on his head looks fine. It is still pink and there is still a small knot there but it doesn't seem to be causing him any problems. He has also not had any problems with limping since we treated him with the ointment. So he is pretty much convinced that the problem was an infected gland. At this point we are just going to leave it alone unless he starts to have problems with it again. Nipper seems to be feeling fine now and is back to his silly puppy dog self. Most of his hair had grown back in on his face where they shaved it...so he is about back to my little handsome guy again.


Thank you all for asking about him and for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers while he was sick. It means the world to me that you care enough about me to worry about him. :o)


I love you guys,


Tammy


P.S. Nipper got a great report on him liver enzymes...2 of the 3 that they always check where in the normal range. That has not happened in several years.


Now that he is better I'll show you some of the pictures. Can you see why I was worried?


Doesn't that look awful?

My poor little guy!!

He still wanted to play....

Getting better.....

And better.....

Much better now.....

Feeling fine and ready to play

Handsome as ever!!!

If Nipper ever needs new chew toys, I'd be glad to donate a couple of cats! Go Nipper!
