This last little while Zack has been doing quite well 90% of the time and then the other 10% he still is having mild bouts of his IBD even though he is still on his anti-inflammatories. Nothing like he had before but it is still there lurking. After speaking with Zack's vet again we are going to now put him on the same prescription treatment he got as a puppy from the Calgary specialist being Tylosin an antibiotic /anti-inflammatory for one month and his probiotics. I hope this will nip it in the bud. Zack IS better he is just having a few little hiccups along the way that's all.
These last few days I have been thinking about all the people I hear who have health problems with their dogs and those who have lost their four legged loved ones way too soon, including myself. It always seems to be the people who love and take care of their dogs the most are the ones who seem to have so many problems and the people who don't give a **it about their dogs their dogs seem to be ok. I am not a religious person but it makes me wonder if God put these animals in our lives on purpose as we are the ones who take care of them and give them a better life, the treatment they require and the love they need.
I would not want to change any of the wonderful dogs I have had so far, but hope one day in the future I will get one without any serious health issues - if that is even possible. Makes me wonder.
