Last week I wrote about my wonderful friend Annie who had no choice but to become a triped when she was diagnosed with cancer in her leg. Sadly Annie’s Mom found out yesterday the cancer had spread before the surgery and she is in need of major prayers. And so does another dog who became a triped through stupid human error.
My friend Koda, while having one of the best families in all of the dog world, has not received a lot of breaks in the health department. He is an oversized Lab with multiple health problems including bone problems in hips and his kness. And then he hit a spot of much ill fortune.
Koda is on medication, as are some of the other members of his pack. Koda’s vet made a mistake and put his name on pills meant for another member of his pack. Koda’s Mom gave him the pills and he became loopy, then fell down, and when he did he shredded his ACL.
Both his Momma and I are very upset with the vetl. His Mom called the vet and told her that she would never take her pet kids to her office again. I sent a huge flock a full geese to poop on the vet’s car and gave the vet fleas. Not her office, just her. Knock my friend down and hurt him and I am going to make you itch for a week.
Koda’s new vet gave him some pain meds to help him get through the day and to relieve the face swelling that was a side effect of the medication he should not have taken. Before any of the physical problems that Koda developed because of his degenerative bone disease could be cured his thyroid problems would need to be treated pharmaceutically.
Once his thyroid problems are addressed then Koda is facing two more operations. One is a hip replacement surgery as his degenerative bone disease has badly damaged his hip, and after that they can address his ACL caused by the know poo covered disgraced vet.
This fall, around the time of Baron Fest, Koda’s Mom and Dad are going to hold Farm Fest. Unfortunately Koda, the leader of his pack, won’t be able to frolic with the other dogs. But he was still be there to give his wise counsel, his leadership, and his friendship.
So please keep Koda, and Annie. in your prayers. He has been one of our best friends for a long time and want him with his family for even longer. He has a hard road ahead some of it as an oversized dog with three legs, but his heart is so big we know it will get him there.
Love you our besite, long may your adventures continue.
