I want to post the meds that Patches received last week so I have a record of what they were. When I got home with them I saw that the prescription labels on the bottles had someone else's name on them. That was not a big issue except for the Tranadol (a controlled substance). I could find myself in trouble with the law for possessing someone else’s prescription medication. I stopped at the vet yesterday and got the labels corrected.

Patches is much better. She climbs the steps slowly and is somewhat unsteady in doing it but does not hesitate when told to go into Desperado.

Not much better about peeing in her bed however; she did that again.

I took Patches to All Creatures Veterinary Service yesterday fully prepared to have her put down. She has not been willing to climb the steps into Desperado for a couple of weeks now. A few days ago when I tried to pick her up she squealed in pain. Plus she has peed in her bed twice during the last 10 days and can no longer do our walks at the usual pace or distance. The vet there has given me some meds that she thinks will correct those issues and keep Patches alive for an unknown time yet. We will see.
