The Day After Radiation Treatment Number Two

Jezebel really hasn't sprung back from yesterday's treatment. The doctor said they didn't expect any side effects but we could hear her breathing in her sleep, last night and her eyes were watery, this morning. Moreover, she is walking around, tail down, and looking a bit hangdog, if you'll excuse the term.

I called the vet to check if this was normal and they said it wasn't. They said if I wanted to get aggressive about it, we could put her on antibiotics but that seems excessive. She is no longer breathing loudly (like she is congested) but she remains pretty lethargic.

You wouldn't know she was still feeling a bit down from the following series of pictures taken a bit ago:

Awww, I can tell she's not feeling well today. Looks like her left eye is closed more then the right one. But I do see white hair growing back in!

Griz wants to be a lap puppy today at 42 pounds. He won't walk on the leg, hasn't touched it and won't eat. Hope tomorrow will be a better day for both of them.

Penny, I am so sorry about Jezebel. I hope she feels better tomorrow. I'm checking your blog daily and my thoughts are with you. These pups are our babies, and it is so hard when they are sick. Hope tomorrow she'll be better.
