Medical issues with our pets are scary! They can’t tell us exactly how they are feeling and they often hide their pain. It is up to us as their owners to notice any concerns and ensure they are treated appropriately.

After owning a number of pets, we have had a number of what I will call medical adventures. Some have worked out well, some have not, but many have been fairly uncommon and interesting.

I share these stories not as a form of medical advice (I have absolutely no medical or veterinary expertise!) but to share them as interesting anecdotes, in hopes that it may help provide someone comfort to know that they are not alone or just to share our experiences.

Again, this is not medical advice. If you are concerned about your pet please consult a veterinarian.
