The Dr said the thing in my eyes that Dr Rick saw is gone. I saw Dr Rick 2 days after my last Seizure and sometimes things can linger a few days before they clear up. So that's good news. There's nothing on my optical nerves that require any attention. But there is some nerve damage to the right side of my face and eye. Dr said I could just be a funny little weird unique doggie that was born that way..... OR it could be nerve damage from seizures. And it's irreversible so it wont get better. It will, however probably could get worse when I have Seizures. I just need to be careful about bumping into things because I do that a lot lately. Hopefully I can continue on the course of no seizures and things will start to get better from here!
The thyroid medicine has my coat all soft and shiny!! I'm a handsome dude in action! I'm now taking 2 phenobarbitals a day and 6 potassium bromides. Lady Kay says I'm "poppin pills like a jerry-actress" whatever that means.
So Lady Kay thinks my shakes can be food related. She looked at the ingredient of my doggie biscuits..
and they have Red dye 40 in them. Red dye 40 has been linked to a number of health issues including seizures in pets AND children. Was it a coincidence that after eating a few of these in 2 days I had the shakes : 3 episodes in less than 30 minutes and fourth a few hours later? Aside from that when I didn't have the other doggie treats that had the same ingredient, it was the first time I went a month w/o the shakes.
Lady Kay and some of her other friends with puppy doggies have been sharing recipes for homemade doggie biscuits and treats. She likes to cook and I like to eat so it's perfect!
Here's a couple of the recipes that I really like to bark about:
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Crunchies
1c of whole wheat flour
2ts of baking pwdr
1c of peanut butter
1 c of oatmeal
Mixed it all together
Formed a ball and rolled it out
and cut into shapes. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
I love these! They're great and Yummy! But I can't eat too many of them because oats are fiber and they make you have really loose bowels so be careful.
the other recipe i just love too. It's a little different:
Salmon Doggie Goodies:
2c brown rice flour
1/2c whole wheat flour
1tbs baking pwdr
2 Tbs olive oil
1c milk( broth would work equally well )
1 sauteed salmon filet ground/minced. Mix it all together.
You can drop it on a greased cookie sheet by the spoonfuls. I spread the dough in the pan & baked it at 350 for 20- 25 min and then cut them into treat squares:
I keep them refrigerated because of the fresh Salmon that was baked into it. I really love these too. I think you should try them! And please let me know how you all like them. I'm going to have Lady Kay make some for my friends. It would be cool if we could find a way to market it and give some of the proceeds to pets like me. I guess ya never know, it could happen.
I've been getting spoiled with some cool yummy summertime treats and games. I'll share that with you next week!
Sorry my page hasn't been updated. In the middle of May Lady Kay got a really bad cough on a Thursday. She went to bed the next day and stayed for 8 days straight with bronchitis. She developed a Cyst on her eye that needed surgery.
so she hasn't been able to update. Next week she's having surgery on her other eye. She called it a "CAT-or-AX." I tried to tell her if there's a choice to choose the ax because any kind of Cat can't be good...!
It's a crazy summer to be safe out there, cuz life can be ruff!
