Butterz update

so talked to the vet a little while ago and we're changing the focus. first, mom took Butterz off Rimadyl & muscle relaxer as of last night. we don't think it's helping and it's probably making him more lethargic. he had terrible Reverse Sneezing fits yesterday so mom did a little more searching and it can be caused "by irritants and even some dog allergies". mom is really hoping this whole thing turns out to be allergies. so we're off to get brother some Benedryl today and start him on that. we are going to leave him on the antibiotic in case there is something viral lurking. but, most importantly, mom is gonna take brother in first thing tomorrow for thyroid check. doc said it's easy to do and easy to treat if there is an issue. so keep the positive thoughts coming and we'll let you know what we find out on Wed!

update: big thanks to Miss Laura. she tipped us off to get children's benedryl.
