This weekend was our Abby's 12th birthday, and I want to thank everyone for all the birthday wishes! Abby had some real trouble walking this weekend, and at her age, this caused me some real moments of panic and endless worry. But her veterinarian put her on some anti-inflammatory medications, along with her usual pain meds.
On Saturday she went for laser therapy, which requires the dogs wear goggles.
And she seemed to have some improvement on Sunday. Since her veterinarian was at a dog event, they had me bring Abby, and she gave Abby acupuncture at the event. Abby, who is the best dog in the world, was perfect for the demonstration. Her vet was amazed, she told me dogs usually have to be bribed with canned dog food to remain still for the treatment, but Abby just stayed still the entire 30 minutes.

I think her happy face after the acupuncture says it all!
She seems to be feeling better, so we are going to continue with the laser therapy and acupuncture. We want to keep our sweet girl as happy as we can, because at 12 years old, every day is a gift.
And this sweet, beautiful girl deserves only the best!
