Aby-a-Day – May 5: Is it medicine time yet?

Dr. KC called this morning with the results of Jacoby’s urine test: he does have a slight bladder infection. He also had a small but significant amount of struvite crystals present, which puts him at risk for possibly developing stones in the future. But for now, he’s well on his way to recovery, and, if there is a bright side to Jacoby being sick, it is Pill Pockets.

Three little words: He. Loves. Them.

I mean, he really loves them!

The only difficult part about giving Jake his medicine is getting the pills into the treat pockets before he eats them right out of my hands!

But I have to say, it’s nice; he needs three pills in the morning and two in the evening, and he can’t wait to eat them up. Yum!

The sad thing is, we had planned to go to both Brookline Health and NewBridge on Sunday to visit the residents (especially on Mother’s Day, for the people who won’t have family visiting), but the vet’s said he should stay home until he’s done with his medication.
