Kealani is doing great!!! Thanks to everyone who had their paws crossed for her!!! I swear, the bone inflammation dissapeared as mysteriously as it appeared!!! Its a miracle!!! It was also very scary! So, she is back to chasing her red ball and Joey is back to lizard patrol. I am so happy she is ok!!!!

I have heartbreaking news. Kealani was diagnosed today with Juvenile Panosteitis. Its an inflammation of the bone,usually in the long bones of the front legs in growing dogs. It started last Friday when she came in from the outside playing with Joey. She was limping and I was wondering if she broke something or got stung by a bee. I instantly called Auntie Sue and she came over and checked her paw. We didnt see anything in her pads and her foot didnt look broken. So she seemed to get better with some rest but then today I took her to the vet to make sure and he had a hunch it is Panosteitis. So I got some Metacam for pain and was hoping she would feel better within the week. BUT THEN at 330 today I noticed her not walking on the other foot!!! She wouldnt put it down and she just wouldnt walk! I panicked and called the vet and rushed her over. Again he said its Panosteitis and that it should go away in a couple of weeks with rest and medicine. So she has inflammation of her bones IN BOTH front legs!!!!!!! So, we will be laying low for a while. Sorry friends, I havent posted much lately and I will be busy giving Kealani lots of hugs and kisses, Oh and Joey too! :) Keep us in your thoughts friends.
