We again round the corner to the end of the week that has been a mostly quiet one. My day off today filled with errands, and taking Max to the groomers for a winter-haircut that will last him through the cold months ahead.
Tomorrow morning I'm off to the veterinary internist with Bailey for an ultrasound. She's had a productive cough the last several months. Antibiotics have helped, and the cough all but disappears, and Bailey feels better, but then the cough returns.
Then the vet puts Bailey back on the antibiotic, and the cycle starts all over again. I've lost track of how many nights I've listened to her raspy breathing and we've both been awake as she coughs up fluid over and over again. At 13 years old it's taking its toll on her. X-rays show a spot on Bailey's lung near her heart is probably the culprit. But its hard to see because of a large lipoma that's blocking and clouding the view.
And finally can you answer the question of who our outdoor kitty Gino is reacting to?

Is the cat reacting to Todd? That's how all cats react to us.ReplyDelete
Oh Gino, what a fluffy tail you have!! Who is there? And Bailey, sending a heap of love from us and our friends ( about 595 cows over the fence!!) for you to be so loved and cared for this next part of your life.XXX to all.ReplyDelete
All the best for Bailey. As for Gino, isn’t anything to do with Todd is it?!ReplyDelete
I would say Todd and Gino are having a face to face “moment!”ReplyDelete
Hope you find an answer for Bailey!
It looks like the cat means business and Todd should not be in her/his space.ReplyDelete
Hello, cute photos of Max and Bailey. I wish Bailey well. I think Gino and Todd do not like sharing space. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
Gino is reacting to a tax man. That also made Bailey sick again.ReplyDelete
Hmmm, surely it can't be Todd:)ReplyDelete
All paws crossed for some good answers for Bailey. Poor sweet girl.

We hope the ultrasound can help Bailey get over her cough. Gino sure has puffed himself up rather big. Our money is on Todd.ReplyDelete
Hoping for good answers gor Bailey.ReplyDelete
Max is so handsome. The cough brings back memories of Monty. I hope Bailey has a better outcome than he did.ReplyDelete
We hope you can get some answers for BaileyReplyDelete

Wonder if it could be allergies or Bailey has a growth or infection on the trachea that is causing he/ she to cough or a very bad case of kennel cough that just wont get better cause of his/her age , wish dogs could talk and tell us . I am hoping you can get some answers and good news of a treatment for Bailey .ReplyDelete
That picture of poor Bailey is heartbreaking, and it must be infinitely worse for you.ReplyDelete
Only hope you get the right answers concerning Bailey. I guess he is oto old to have the lipoma removed as old dogs don't take kindly to anaesthetics. I guess the important answer is how good is life for Bailey right now regardless of everyone else's feelings, with Bailey being the important one. My thoughts are with all of you.ReplyDelete
I have seen cats react to other cats in that way but not knowing what wildlife you have where you are I guess it could be anything.
I am sending good thoughts to Bailey. I hope that an easy answer is found.
I'm guessing Todd is the culprit creating kitty's reaction.ReplyDelete
