Pupdate: T-Bone Edition

Well, our beloved T-Bone has been with us for 7 months now.  And to celebrate, he had his bi-annual vet visit!  As usual he was good as gold!!

Eyes - they are looking good!  We will be continuing the twice daily drops to help with his dry eye.  But, he takes them like a champ, so not a problem.

Ears - they get gunky.  I clean them a few times a week, but that boy can rack up the crud.  Doc didn't see any infection in them, so that's great.  Just got to keep on cleaning them.  He gave them a good rinsing, which annoyed T-Bone.  But, I'm sure it felt good when all was said and done.

Knee - hasn't had any problems with his knee.  He came to us after having needed knee surgery last September.  We only have a few steps, but he handles them well.  Not signs of lameness or pain.

Teeth - they are great!  Granted the underbite is pretty intense ;)

Paws - he's been licking at his front left paw.  Looks like there is some irritation on the bottom of it.  I've been spraying it with a topical spray when I catch him licking it - which usually makes him annoyed with me then he stops.  Doc didn't see any infection, said to keep doing what we are doing and let them know if a sore develops.

Temperament - old boy is a grumpy gus, but yet so lovable.  He was put on prozac due to some instability with his behavior towards his brother and (mostly) sister.  Thankfully, it has done wonders.  We still have an occasional tiff, but his unprovoked naughtiness has greatly diminished.  And yet, he isn't dazed and confused...I was worried it might make him loopy, but it doesn't.  Don't like having a dog on these kinds of meds, but its definitely safer for all parties.  And I think T-Bone is much happier in his new home.

Other 'stuff' - he got his rabies along with his bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine.  Didn't even flinch! Due to being over 5 years old, they ran a panel on his blood to check how his insides are functioning and all looked great!! All was good with his stool and heart worm check too!  And he weighs 55.1 lbs!  Healthy boy!!

T-Bone is one lucky dude!! Life started pretty rough for him, but he's doing phenomenal and living the life most bulldogs dream of!

They all watch me when I check the mail - such good guard dogs :)
