Don't let this pouty puppy pose fool you. Astrid is feeling pretty good these days. She has had her sutures removed and is finally free of her bandage following her toe amputation to remove a sarcoma, but the incision is still a bit fragile and needs to fully heal still. That means the cone of shame, and unfortunately still only short walks. Other than that, though, Astrid is pretty much back to her old self. She is full of boundless energy (which is so very noticeable since she can only go on short walks to release that energy), and she is loving life.
Thank you all again for the purrs, barks, prayers, and thoughts you sent Astrid over the past few weeks! They certainly worked!
Our Doodle of the Day:
Astrid was perturbed that I doodled a kitty astronaut recently but not a puppy one.
So, here you go, Astrid.
Our Tip of the Day:Discussion of Thanksgiving food simply wouldn't be complete without turkey. Is it safe to feed your kitty or pup some Thanksgiving turkey? Turkey bits fed in moderation can be a safe and delicious treat, so long as excess fat and bones are removed. Fat can lead to pancreatitis, among other potential issues, and bones are a choking hazard as well as can lead to perforation or obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract. Also keep in mind whether any additional ingredients, seasonings, or other additives were used when cooking the turkey. For example, onion, garlic, or excess salt on the turkey could potentially lead to gastrointestinal upset or other issues. So, you don't have to skip giving your furbaby a taste of that Thanksgiving turkey, but do be sure that you take precautions for the health and safety of your furbaby.
