BRONCHODILATOR


I have been teaching everyone that
PATIENCE
is pretty much
all one has when waiting 
for results from your vet.


Since Daddy Ron used the spray form 
of a bronchodilator 20 years ago, 
when the Dr. mentioned the pill form
he understood what I was going through.
~
~ dilating the bronchi and bronchioles,
decreasing resistance in the respiratory 
airway to increase airflow to the lungs ~


My symptoms which are 'asthma-like'
would appear when I walked uphill,
long distances or even sustained short walks.
Fingers crossed !
~
So with a strong heart, a huge appetite and loving licks,
I leap forward to tomorrow when I drop into the vet to pick up my pills!

Cheers, as always.

  1. Pills will be the answer to many problems, and remember, all food is good if eaten in moderation. That is what I tell myself as I have" Ice-cream" for desert so often. ( Well,Hugh would say every night). Hope those new pills do the trick and you can walk without huffing and puffing. Those sunshiney days will help a huge lot too.

  2. Oh, Sophie doodle, I'm so glad you went to the vet. I hope the medicine will help you. I have the same problems, but got them from smoking when I was young and stupid. I too am seeing the doctor, but at the end of the month. Sending lots of love.

    1. Constantly being tested Mitch....... Sophie was given a prescription for her asthma-like condition. I found out that the meds were in pill form......well hello there, does anyone have these pills?

      No one in the pharmacy system had them in stock let alone neighbouring giant grocery store chains either.

      However after hearing all this the pharmacist confirmed that their main head office would be sending the order for Thursday.
      My nerves are fraid at times.
      Tomorrow can't come soon enough!
      Best to you both

    1. One day at a time is all about we can manage at this time.
      Jim's sisters dog ~ Sophie's pal ~ passed away the other day.
      Don't have the heart to tell her.
      All of this is too close at this time.
      Best to you both

  9. I'm sorry, Sophie, to hear about your breathing difficulties. Let's hope your meds kick in and make you feel better. I'm happy to see that you and Mr. Orangie are still together! I know Daddy Ron is an amazing and creative artist, but how can he not be with such a great subject? Winkers, Girlfriend!
