We Have a Answer

I wrote a little while ago that Bolo was having some medical problems. We had been to doctor appointment after doctor appointment and still no answers. I just knew something wasn't right with my dog. 
With us getting ready to move I am starting to panic that he is not well enough to travel. 

 Lets switch topics for a moment. 
Emma goes to her My Gym classes twice a week. There was a new mom there with a daughter similar to Emma's age. We talk here and there but mostly about our kids. I had mentioned that I was having to move early because I have a dog with a snub nose, but was worried because he hasn't been feeling well lately. She asked me what his symptom's were because she is a vet tec. After naming the long list of problems she said that it sounds like he has Cushings Disease.  I went home and read all about it and my heart sank. I finally have a name to what I think is his problems.

I went back to the vet. 
They wanted to do a second blood test. 
Next was a ultrasound
They found that his adrenal glands were (larger or smaller...cant remember). 
Finally he had the Cushings test.
2 days after the test for Cushings,  Bolo has been diagnosed. 
  He is positive for Cushings Disease.

This girl I don't even know saved my puppy.
There is know way I could ever thank her enough.

The next step is medication for the rest of his life and lots of vet appointments to make sure the dosages are always on the right track.

I am just so thankful that I finally have a answer to the reason why my baby boy has changed drastically.
This is going to be a new journey of trying to keep him healthy.
I will do whatever I can to keep my puppy around for as long as I can.


  1. I am so glad that he got a diagnosis finally and that he is being so well taken care of! Hugs!

  2. That's awesome she had an idea of what was up.
