I haven't posted for a week as I have been scared to death for Dushka. She has been lethargic, not eating unless really persuaded to, growling when touched and carrying her paws in the air. I had her blood tested on Monday, fearing Lyme's disease. The vet put her onto Doxicycline in advance of the results. But the news came today that she is negative, so at least I am breathing again. The antibiotics have helped her, she is much more alert, eating OK but her joints still seem to be hurting, though not as much. I can hold her without her complaining, but tonight she jumped onto the sofa, seemed to get her paw stuck in the upholstery and began growling, then attacked me when I went to rescue her. But I have looked at her paws and claws, run hands up and down her legs and there seemes to be nothing wrong. The vet has no ideas at the moment but I am continuing with the meds. Any ideas? She is only 6 years old, so young for athritis.
