today. The vets said he looked great and the x-rays of his lungs looked very good. Previously, one lung was not fully inflated and they worried that he might have developed pneumonia as a side effect of the surgery. Norbert has been a little stiff in his right foreleg singe the surgery. This is more pronounced after he gets up from lying down and he will limp for a bit and then appears normal after walking for awhile. The vet checked him out and said he looked very good for his age. They mentioned that manipulating the limbs during surgery may have exacerbated existing arthritis there. So for now we are just sticking with the Glucosamine and fish oil we give him already. He was running up the stairs when we got home, so his arthritis doesn't seem to be slowing him down much.
|Yawn, recovery is hard work|
Well off the subject of vets and onto something more fun-Dog Food! Friday night we took Bob to a new store in Jersey City, Hound About Town.
It is a really nice little store with lots of adorable toys and good quality treats and dog foods. They were having an event where the makers of Evermore Pet Food where in the store to discuss their product. Evermore is made in Brooklyn, New York with fresh antibiotic free meats and organic fruits and veggies. Its cooked, but is sold frozen. The ladies who make it even taste test each batch of the food! Bob certainly enjoyed the sample he tried.
The only flaw with Evermore is its a bit out of our price range, at 10 dollars for two pounds of food (it was on sale for 8 dollars on Friday).
We bought one box to add as a topper to the kibble we feed Norbert, Bob, and Zira or the Honest Kitchen we feed Tubby and Ping.
