Princess Meichan got some good news late in the day-- Dr. Banz from Sage called and said her lab work came back. Blood work is good so ok to start Rimadyl/Carprofen. The joint fluids from her right ankle is clear, her left knee shows some inflammation but is not autoimmune in nature 🎉. The mild inflammation is caused by irritation from her knee caps slipping.
We have a physical therapist consult on 7/17 and will go back for re-check on 7/27 to see how she is doing. The physical therapist is also a doctor of acupuncture so we can figure out what kind of ongoing treatment we do at Sage vs. our regular vet.
We thank everyone who have expressed concerns and well wishes for our beloved moku. #notstuffedanimal #sage #notimpa
