Little Spanky has had a tough year so far, as some of you know. It started in Feb with a tooth infection that necessitated a dental (which we tried to avoid as he doesn’t do well with anesthesia)
Two days later we rushed him to the ER As he was bleeding from his bottom. We thought we were losing him but it was stress Colitis. A few weeks later he started having Vestibular events. For him they totally paralyse him and can last hours. We hold him but again, there have been times we thought we were losing him. He’s a tough 15 year old! His arthritis is very bad now and he finds it hard to walk more than a few steps at a time.
For the last 6 weeks he has been struggling with in continence :-( We left him a few weeks ago with our vet (she has a pug) as we had to be away for 3 days and he got stress Colitis again.
SO we have decided that 14-15 hours in the car would not be good for him just now and are canceling our trip to #pugstakephilly
Spanky has brilliant days in between the bad ones and we want to make sure he’s comfortable and happy. We are still taking him to Nashville at the end of the month as it’s a short drive and he does so love to meet people❤️
We will miss you all in Philly and wanted to let you know why we have decided not to go.
