puggy patient
October 15, 2009

The Sausage was very low maintenance...he never needed much except when he got cancer and required some surgeries. Even then he would bounce back a day or two later like it never happened.

But poor little Miss Plum has a compromised immune system. She is currently battling 3 infections: staph, pseudomonas, and upper respiratory infection. For the latter I just had to change up her antibiotics again because she wasn't responding to the others and every couple hours I have to crate her with a big basin of hot water and Vick's vapo rub under a blanket...since dogs can't blow their nose it helps loosen up the congestion.

Here she is undergoing her latest treatment...steam baths...this is one high maintenance pug!

On a happy note we received a very special Plum card in the mail today from one of the Curly Kids! Soooooo cute!

Poor PumPum! Maybe you could buy a vicks vaporizer from CVS for her. You can add vicks to the well, aim it at her crate n run it on low for hours. You had one when you were a kid! You can't be too far off from `72. (winx)

Also, the powders I sent you info on.... were specifically prescribed to boost our dog's immune system. Can't hurt to try another homeo remedy.
