Hi, it's KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I'm not hanging with my five furry family members, I'm volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<

Dog Days Of Surgery, Part 4

What? My Dog Can't Drink & Drive?
Well darn, now I have to hide the car keys AND the booze.
This is pain medication for a DOG! Really, does she need this warning? (Do they think she's going to read it?)
Poor Sasha's too sick to drink. And her cone won't fit behind the wheel.
Here is Sasha way back in May of 2014, tying one on. She didn't drive that night, either. She left that to her partner in crime...
... Marco, the original party boy. He learned from his Great Uncle Toonces.
Toonces the Driving Cat. Can't get enough Toonces!
(Who would have thought I could laugh so hard at screaming humans going over a cliff!)
Post-surgery update: So here's how she's doing. She's banging into the walls of these narrow San Francisco hallways with her huge collar, but she's got a great attitude about it. The pain meds are helping, but the anti-anxiety Rx only makes her more anxious and upset. I found that natural remedies calmed her better. A few drops of Rescue Remedy** in her water, food, ear tips and paws have helped lessen her anxiety and take the edge off. Plus a few drops in a mister bottle to spray her bedding. That actually helps calm down her anxious mama (me), too!
** NOTE: I am not a paid endorser of Rescue Remedy. (Although I would like to be!) I have purchased various Bach Flower Essence Rememdies for over 25 years, and swear by them as a non-toxic, safe alternative (and complement) to prescription medications. Happily, my animals respond well to them too. Tomorrow: Part 4 of Sasha's medical journey as she deals with dysplasia & healing from arthroscopic surgery. (See Parts 1, 2 & 3)
