Default Sonny Farrell June 1, 2004 - September 6, 2016 RIP Little Guy

Have a diabetic Pug in the house again. I'm fostering Sonny from last night through Monday evening, while the principals of the MidSouth Pug Rescue are at a "Pug Fest" in Milwaukee.

Sonny's about 9 years old, 20 lbs., and was diagnosed about 4 months ago. His previous owners, with 4 kids, turned the poor guy over to a rescue in Northern Virginia when he was dx'd. He lost his vision shortly after his diabetes dx, and the rescue group fronted the funds for his cataract surgery prior to a fundraising effort. These are wonderful folks with huge hearts. He had the surgery Tuesday, and everything looks very good.

Sonny's on 5U of Novolin N, eats W/D, ... now with crock pot chicken. His post surgery meds are:
  • Prednisolone Acetate Drops - 1% 4X
  • Ofloxacin Drops 3X
  • Clavamox - 125mg 2X
  • Metacam 1/2 normal dose (for 10 lb.) 1X
Seems a bit thirsty, not too bad, but that's expected with the meds.

He looks very sweet- and has clearly settled in very nicely.....

(We had a foster dog who came here about 3 years ago, and is still with us)

It sure is. Seems Sonny likes it too. He's been staying real close to me. Right now, he's sleeping under my chair.

He's a real good boy, even lets me know when he needs to go out.
