Well tonight was trip two to the vets for a continuation of the homeopathic treatment. Dr Benvenuti had a full house tonight: a temperamental Irish Setter – we all had to make sure it couldn’t see our various pets, we couldn’t quite figure out what that was all about. A very effeminate man or a very masculine woman – couldn’t tell which – with a four week old kitten and his/her mother/wife/friend with a large but very gentle dog of unknown pedigree. Two young men with a big old orange cat saddled with an Elizabethan collar and a very laid back reaction to it all. And several other people coming and going with much to do – I undertand now how opera was born in Italy. Through the mayhem our Reese just sat there and only reacted when he saw a Golden Retriever parade by the window – much barking at that point – guess he was far enough away not to accept the challenge.
He was given another series of shots tonight – and for the first time let out a yelp when he was injected. When we got home he ate some of my minestrone mixed with tuna and is now sleeping. I would like to say I’ve seen an improvement but that may just be wishful thinking. We shall see what happens in the next 48 hours.
Again thanks everyone for your thoughts, prayers and love. It has been incredible.
