A year in the life of our Miss Riley

House Call

on January 31, 2015

Today we had a rather unusual visitor: the vet. One of his suggestions had been to give Riley a cortisone + B12 shot to help her healing. When I had asked if we could have him administer it without her having to get out of the car, since we knew she wouldn’t be able to take the steps up to his clinic (he had once treated Xander in our car), he insisted on coming out to us, which was incredibly nice of him.

So Riley got her shot, and the vet thinks she’s doing a lot better than we thought — he watched her get up and move around, and took a look at her poop. We’re going to re-assess her in a week, see if she needs more cortisone, but in the meantime, we can continue with the kibble in addition to the rice.

Not sure how Riley feels about the vet invading her turf, but hopefully the visit will do her some good.

    It is wonderful to see such care given…..and of course goes without saying considering Riley’s equally wonderful friends Ken and Jennifer
