Belle Pup Update

I asked Belle if it would be ok for me to give you all an update on how she is doing. She said I could if I kept it short, she says I tend to ramble a bit. Hmmm…well anyway.

As part of the plan to help Belle with her arthritis she was put on an anti-inflammatory along with another medication. Belle started both medicines this past Wednesday. The other medicine will take 4-6 weeks to see if it will help her but the anti-inflammatory made a difference almost right away.

Belle is our stoic, serious, watcher outer over everyone else pup. We knew she was in pain and struggling to get up and down and go up and down steps but we didn’t realize how much until the anti-inflammatory kicked in.

The difference is huge, she is running, yes running up and down the stairs. She is instigating play with her sisters and she is even more interested than usual in what’s going on around her.

Best of all she has her sparkle back. 😊

  1. Such happy news. Medicine is amazing! (especially when it’s wrapped in cheese or covered in peanut butter) And in my opinion – running is ALWAYS better than walking!

    Love and licks,
