Default Re: Pip collie lab x cushings arthritis

Hi Lesile,

Pip is doing fine his ears are finally getting there he pants alot .
But he's doing loads better this afternoon i've been doing some gardening ans Pip's been doing he's bit i layed the plants where i wanted them and he was digging holes where he wants the plants and if i put them in different place he would pull the up.
Now regarding walking thats a bit hit and miss at the moment if he goes for a walk in the morning he's very reluctant to go for his evening walk he really has slowed down quite alot over the last month or so .but i think thats alot to do with his hip dyspalisa (needs a hip replacement) and his arthritis in the rest of his joints.
He still got a good appetite I HAVE A DOG THAT WAGGING HIS TALE ALL THE TIME AGAIN AND HAS THE SPARKLE BACK IN HIS EYES AND HE FOLLOWS BE ABOUT LIKE IF USE TO DO. HE PLAYS WHEN HE WANTS TO WHEN HE HAD ENOUGH HE STOPS.
although he sleeps alot now ,My vet said Pip would always be old before his time.He's 10 in december he's a large dog and his weight is against him.
I think Now i'm starting to see the ageng process with Pip now
