Cross Paws for Juno Belle Jodhpurs

Cross Paws for Juno Belle Jodhpurs

Juno's in the hospital. Since Thursday she's had a fever of 104. Thinking it was viral or mild flu, the vet had given her anti-inflamatory to bring down the fever. On Saturday, I had to bring her in as it was not returning to normal and she was not walking well. She ran blood tests right there and all her functions and blood tests were normal and the first tick panels came back negative. They sent the bloodwork out for other tick panels. My vet then put her on fluids for a few hours and she came home with me on Saturday evening. She also gave her Doxycycline just in case it was tick disease as it was an antibiotic and couldn't hurt even if it wasn't tick disease, while we waited for results. Today, Sunday, her fever shot up to 105.7, despite efforts to bring it down with fluids and cold compresses to belly, armpits and feet pads.  So I took her to the E.R. There it shot up to 106.1. They can't find the source of infection yet, though they are running more blood tests and now ultrasounds and urine tests. She's eating still. She ate tons of chicken soaked in broth today. So there's no concern with her G.I. Her x-rays show something "mild" that "could" (or could not) be pneumonia.  We'll know more when a specialist reviews. But gosh, it's frustrating not knowing what the cause is.

It's so unnatural for her to be so lethargic. She still wagged her tail at me, but she usually jumps up and acts enthusiastically crazy every day to celebrate her happiness. Her winter jodhpurs have filled out and though she's only in the hospital over night, I miss running my hands through them. I was going to do another post about the TravelMarx visit because they took such awesome photos while visiting, but I'll save it for later this week and instead, I'll just share a few of the black and whites they took of Juno.


"Uncle Marc, is that hot dog for moi? Awe shucks, you shouldn't have. But since you did..."


"So are you, or are you NOT going to give me that hot dog? 'Cuz you've got about 3 seconds and if you don't pay up, I'm outta here."


"Duh, I know I'm gorgeous. My secret? My gumdrop nose and my jodhpurs."
