We are happy to report that Roscoe is slowing getting back to his rascally old self!! He is finally eating well and starting to behave like the old Roscoe. We will be visiting the VET on Monday for a recheck. Right now we are on oral prednisone and shots every 3 weeks. These drugs replace what the body no longer makes with Addison’s Disease. Daisy will be back next week with a full Roscoe report!!

Hello everyone, we have been keeping our paws crossed and saying lots of pawyers these last couple of days. On Monday Roscoe got sick and went into Addisonian Crisis which is really really bad. On Tuesday we thought he wasn’t going to make it, and yesterday mom went to go visit him at the VET ICU, he was happy to see her but very weak. Fortunately this morning the VET says he is out of the woods and all his electrolytes and stuff are getting into the normal range, but he has Addison’s Disease, which you can read about here.
If anyone knows any other dogs with this we would love to get in touch. We are hoping our rascally Roscoe will come home very soon!
and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Remember I’ll always be true
And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my loving to you
Purr Purr Purr
Remember a smile is just
A frown turned upside down
My friend let me tell you
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
