As of today, Daisy is off Benadryl and the antibiotics. I’m not sure she ever really needed the antibiotics, so we aren’t going to finish them.
Daisy is using all her feet! As of Monday evening; in addition to the Benadryl, we’ve doubled her antibiotics and started her on Prednisone.
The Vet isn’t certain if Daisy got stung or has irritated an itchy spot. Starting this afternoon, she’s to get 4 (100 mg total) of Benadryl every 8 hours three times. I’ve got some spray to relieve the itching as well as antibiotics – just in case, since she’s got so many little sores. I’m going to try some of that spray on the spots that Mollie is licking incessantly. Willow and Mollie got to go to PupTown today, but Daisy had to stay home and rest that foot. Unfortunately, the Groomer is booked so Mollie will have to wait two more weeks to get a bath and haircut.
Late this morning, Daisy stopped using her right front leg. I called the Vet to make an appointment for tomorrow morning, put a glob of antiseptic ointment on the foot and covered it with a sock.
To my delight, Steve and I proved ourselves capable of getting stuff done in a very BIG way! I met with my Trainer at the Marsh. Then we set out on our errands: A foot evaluation for Steve with the Pedorthist and some new shoes from Schuler Shoes. Steve needs new glasses and we picked out new frames. Lunch at Byerly’s in Golden Valley. Meeting with our Lawyer, also in attendance was my Financial Advisor. Bought a new mattress to be delivered to the new house. We were on a roll, so we drove up to Welcome Amish Furniture in Albertville where we picked out a new bed and nightstands. We celebrated our productivity with pizza and red wine for dinner!
Avery and I did some back-to-school shopping at Macy’s, visited my Dad for a bit then met my Mom for lunch at Scotty B’s. The Vet recommended 2 Benadryl every 8 hours rather than the 1 every 4 hour schedule we were on.
Daisy is in full-on itch mode. I’m going to increase her evening Benadryl.
My eyes are puffy and itching. Daisy is itching and scratching. Are these two facts related?
We enjoyed Santana and Rod Stewart in concert at the Xcel Center with Bob and Anita.
Today’s Adventure in House Hunting:
Park Street E, Wayzata: We have a short list!! We’ll be taking a 2nd look at this one. Walking distance to Wayzata. Perfect yard for the dogs.
W Hillside Drive, Wayzata: Dismal kitchen. Sprawling. Private well/sewer.
Maple Hill Road, Woodland: Needs way too much work. First dead mouse we’ve seen.
Burwell Drive, Minnetonka: So very kewl! Too kewl.
Northome Avenue, Deephaven: Best guest suite we’ve seen! But, that’s the only thing we liked about it. No shower in the master bath.
Narcissus Lane N, Plymouth: Ugh. For Sale by Owner – who was there to greet us.
133 Ridgeview Drive, Wayzata: 3 bedrooms on the main floor, master bedroom up. Backwards.
399 Ridgeview Drive, Wayzata: Hated the driveway, disliked the water feature. Weird woodwork. No yard.
