Cheery Cheesy Meds

An update from Miss Cheoah’s vet visit Friday afternoon and some adjustments in our treatments—tweaking the cheery Cheesy meds.

With her 14th birthday in the rearview mirror, Miss Cheoah gets special attention to ensure her comfort. Arthritis has been her nemesis for quite a long time, so we periodically review her medication and supplement regimen, along with regular blood screening to watch for any side effects. She has exhibited some increasing discomfort in the last few weeks and we believe in comfort above everything.

The adjustment is putting some pep in her step

A few days into the new mix and things seem to be going well. We will keep a close eye on our girl to keep that big smile going in the backyard.

    Green lipped mussels is what I meant to say.

    Our girl gets medacam in addition to curcumin, CBD oil, and lipped mussel caplets and tri-acta. This seems to help her.

    What about a ramp built so she does not have to do so many stairs? That is what we did with our dogs as they got older. Stairs are hard on legs.

    Juno gets serrapeptase for arthritis, (among 14 other supplements) . She’s still spry at 15 and a half.
