Bonnie playing with her "chew stick"

We have some good news to report on Bonnie this week…when we took her in to the vet on Monday to get her next round of the anti-fungal vaccine and additional meds, we discovered she had gained close to four pounds, or approximately 10% of her body weight!!  She is still one bony pup but her sharp edges are starting to smooth out a bit, which makes all of us happy.  She has a new spring in her step, a zest for fun and has begun barking at anything and anyone who walks by our house, so we know she’s feeling better!  Thanks to everyone for the prayers and words of encouragement, they are working!

We are continuing her current treatment regimen and have slowly “graduated” to eating more solid foods, including lots of ground wet dog food, some dry dog food and cat food, still mixed with a little baby food and Pedialyte.  She still chows down very enthusiastically!  Her new favorite pastime is gnawing on an old rawhide bone that she found in the yard…I take it away from her before she can actually swallow any of the pieces, but she does enjoy softening it up and gets so happy she starts wiggling.  I’ll continue to update everyone on Bonnie’s progress as she continues to improve!  Thank goodness for Austin Pets Alive! helping this beautiful sweet girl!

    She’s beautiful. Thanks for the update, it’s great to see her doing so much better. I can’t wait to see pictures of her as she gains her normal weight. So glad she has such kind people to take care of her and give her medicine. Glad to see she’s feeling better, we are all on your side, sweet girl!
