Back to her fighting weight


Well Maggie had us scared for a little while. We're still being cautious, but she's doing so much better. She lost a lot of weight last month, getting down to 4.8 pounds. She was so skinny, and had us all so concerned. Mom got her to the vet, and fortunately her organs were OK, but her white blood cell count was high. The vet suspected an infection in her gut and she was put on an oral antibiotic (liquid) and prescription food. Dad weighed her tonight and she is holding at 7.4 pounds, which is where she should be. This makes us all so happy. We're sticking with the prescription food, but will probably mix it with another just to stretch it some. But we all like it (of course we like there's expensive stuff) and it is settling well on our systems.

Thanks again for all the well wishes while Maggie recovered. Y'all are the best!
