It’s amazing how far Comet has come in the five weeks she’s been with us. She tagged along on her foster sister’s vet appointment the other day, and she’s gained four pounds! You can no longer see her ribs, and her belly area is filling out. The vet said her coat is feeling a lot better too. Comet even approached the vet and sat between her legs. She’s definitely starting to trust again.
We are continuing Comet on her limited ingredient diet, and she’s on the maintenance dose of Apoquel. Her scratching is almost nonexistent.
Comet’s cage reactivity still appears, but it a lot less severe and less often. We found if we turn our backs toward her, she will stop. We will continue to work on this.
Comet attended GRRoW’s volunteer thank you event and ran around with the other dogs in attendance. It was a happy sight to see her run for the first time. She did great with everyone, two or four legged! We took her swimming, and though she did some paddling, it wasn’t her thing.
Comet is scheduled to have her teeth cleaned at the beginning of November. The vet still wasn’t able to get a good look at her mouth, but we know at least one tooth is going to be pulled. She’ll need to heal from that, and then she’ll be able to go to her forever home.
