So our Vinca was 15 in September.....she is getting up there in age. Over the last couple of weeks she has really slowed down, started throwing up one of her meals a couple times a week. And just seeming more "out of it." I was really preparing myself for thinking it was time. We had the vet out last week to do some bloodwork to see if maybe she developed cushings or diabetes because she was drinking a lot more too as well as losing weight. Well, it came out that she had a bad case of Pancreatitis. She had this once before, but it was way more of an acute sickness, not a slow decline like whats been going on now. So she is on an antibiotic, anti-nausea pill, and GI RX dog food and is doing great. Even with all the snow we've been getting she seems to be feeling good. Here is a photo of her after making it up to my daughter's bedroom on the second level....so proud of herself for making it all the way upstairs!
