Pongo is home! He ended up spending the day at the vet's office so they could work on getting his sodium levels back down within normal range. Because he's shown no improvement movement-wise, they started him on a treatment plan for vestibular disease...they're still not exactly sure that's the issue, but for now it seems like a good possibility. We'll see...
Tomorrow Pongo is heading back in for an acupuncture treatment with Dr. Funk. I've had good luck with acupuncture, so I'm hoping it might be able to help him. While none of my spotties have had acupuncture before, I did have a horse back in Indiana that had treatments done on occasion, also with good results.
Pongo is currently resting in...a swimming pool! I've had one sitting in my garage for years unused (the spotties are not fans) so I'm glad to finally have a use for it. I'm hoping that it helps keep him comfortable and secure.
Peyton is obsessing over Pongo at the moment. Normally, he won't give Pongo the time of day (he thinks he's bor-ing), but he's been trying to sniff and lick him all over since we got home. Poor Pongo is less than amused...I finally had to put Peyton in my room so he'd leave him alone. And Indy - well, she's just annoyed that no one is paying attention to her.
Speaking of Indy and Peyton - they also got to see the vet today. My primary vet, Dr. Funk, stopped by to do their annual heartworm tests and also adjusted both of them (chiropractic - not attitude - in case you were wondering). They both actually did pretty good. Peyton has a love-hate relationship with Dr. Funk...he really likes him, but is less than enthusiastic about getting worked on. Today he tried his best to convince Dr. Funk with lots of big toothy smiles that he was in perfect health. :) And Indy, well let's just say she didn't bark as much as usual.
Pongo would like to thank all of his friends for the good wishes...they really mean a lot! He'd also like to thank Dr. Capuano and the staff at Sarasota Animal Hospital for taking such good care of him.
