During the x-ray reading, Doctor Kevin informed me Lucy's tummy was full of chicken bones. He let me know in case she had gotten into the trash. I told him they were from the chicken leg she ate for lunch. Yum, yum!
Lucy is thriving on her grain-free, raw food diet. She went from an allergic, ichy, hot spot, yeasty-earred dog to clear skin, no bald spots and spotless, clean smelling ears. Yippee!
In addition to Lucy's raw diet, she receives the following supplements to support her immune system:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Milk Thistle
- Bone Meal Powder
- Balanced Amino Acids
- Halo VitaGlo Hip & Joint Supplement
We have more great news: Lucy made it through her second surgery to remove two additional tumors! She had prolotherapy injections to her torn ACL in her knee too. The two tumors were benign and her knee is getting stronger. Doctor Kevin at Loving Touch Animal Center: You rock!

Lucy is a bit more tired these days. We've started our 1 mile walks again. She doesn't ever seem too tired to walk me. I forgot how fast she goes and got shin splints the first few times. They were well worth the smile on her face as she paced through the 'hood to smell the roses. Err, replace the word "roses" with "pee spots".
