Well, her first 24 hrs she was at the vets. We had carafate for tummy, antibiotics, and wormers.
She was on a/d canned food, and I made a slurry with it, watered down with pedialtye. ALOT of pedialyte...cause she wont drink water.
Did a follow up with our vet, and got her first set of shots, cause I dont trust the vet in mexico who supposedly checked her...(funny thing, Contiental cant get a hold of the vet, and OUR vet never heard of a DMZ degree)
I was afraid to get attached to her, but the minute I saw her, it was actually too late....shes adorable.
And I believe she is over the hump. She is spunky, playful, her nose is wet and cold.....and shes got an attitude...typical bullie behaviour. I have alot of holes in my socks. she whines now in the kitchen cause she knows where the food is, and when she wants it!! She could have cared less when I set it in front of her before.
She is mastering the potty pads, so much so, that my cat knocked a placemat off the table and she saw a square and squatted on it!! lol....
Oh, I probably have broken every rule there is. She sleeps with us. Having 4 kids, I was used to falling asleep with them on my chest, I gotta say, it sure filled a void. She means the world to me.
My fiance went to go spend some time with his mom today, (his dad passed 9 yrs ago) and she told him he would make a great dad. (I cant have any more kids) He fawns all over that pup and maybe we are paying TOO much attention to it, I dont know. But she sure had a rough start and we felt she needed alot of spoiling....
I came home from my moms today, to find the two curled up on the couch, her in the crook of his arm, her head on his chest and they were zonked. It was so cute.
I am still trying to find the answers I need regarding the airlines, vet, and such....
But for now, I gotta tell you, I look forward to coming home and seeing that sweet face waiting to give me kisses.
I appreciate the forum here, and hope I can contribute something positive as well. This is my first bully, so I am sure I will have plenty more questions.....
I gotta say, as an old vet tech, (I am talking 12 yrs ago) Heartworm preventative has come a long way...from daily to monthy....and now, one dose on the back covers all parasites and heartworms!! whoo hoooo!!
i am happy to hear she is much better. that is great. i too have never heard of a DMZ license but some initials are different depending which college in this country you got your degree. also many vets get their degrees overseas in italy and australia because it is easier so the initials may be different until they come here and pass the boards.
