Home

Memphis is home and she's comfortable and doing well. Dr's think the problem is an immune mitigated bone disease, but the diagnosis will be confirmed during the week when the culture results get back from NY. If that turns out to be the problem, they'll treat it with a steroid. For now, we're going to limit her walks and keep her comfortable. She's got her appetite, and just had a big dinner.

Glad to hear she's home & comfy. The vet had to send samples to NY? Wow.

I'm glad she's home. Poor little Memphis. I'm also glad she has the best parents who take such good care of her.

Are shorter walks and a swim a viable way of keeping her fit?

Have you informed the kennel about this?

Az, we don't have a 'for sure' diagnosis yet, so I haven't contacted the breeder.

We're hoping that she can exercise normally after she's treated. I'll know more on Wednesday.
