Help Slim & Tia Get Vital Medical Care

Update posted by Carol Young On Mar 31, 2019

Slim had been in to his vet on March 21st because he was still not eating well despite new medications. The vet prescriptions to help with pain and settle his stomach. However after a few days Slim lost his appetite completely and would no longer take his medications. When he was brought back to the vet just a week it was clear that something had happened to cause Slim to go downhill quickly. Based on his symptoms and condition, the vet suspected a blood clot. The decision was made to help Slim across the rainbow bridge so that he would no longer have to suffer. Saying good-bye is always the most difficult part of helping these pups, who we consider a part of the Bandit's BandAid family. <3 We love you sweet Slim.

Slim went in to his dermatology specialist for an exam and blood work. The dermatologist was concerned with Slim's liver and kidney values and therefore referred Slim to an internal medicine specialist. Today Slim visited the the internist and received an ultrasound and a battery of other tests. Thankfully he ultrasound did not reveal any major problems, but Slim's blood pressure was measured and was high. Some other tests are still pending, but the general assessment was that Slim's medications may have caused the problems with his blood work. Consequently his medications were adjusted and he was given a new prescription to address his high blood pressure. Once the remaining lab results come back the internist will decide whether any additional treatments will be needed.

Tia was thoroughly examined by a neurologist who concluded that she has two issues. The first is arthritis and the second is a ruptured disc. However because of the passage of time since the rupture occurred, surgery is no longer an options. Therefore the arthritis will be managed through medications, and her mobility will be addressed by the use of a cart which Bandit's Bandaid will purchase.
