Old pups

20160419_205557.jpgHi evfurry

Please send some woofs and purrs Forrests way..

He has been to the vet today after he was yelping this morning in pain.

We have him home and will have more news from Dr Mark tomorrow as it seems many anipals flooded the vets today.

He has some issues with discs in his neck..he is on Tramol but not high doses because he is old.

He had xrays and they show an enlarged heart.

He had acupuncture and will be getting acupuncture every day for a week.

Dad is sad…Mum is sad..he is not wanting to walk..he cannot turn right without it hurting..he enjoyed his dinner but when Mum told him he was a good boy tonight while he was lying down he looked up and yelped.

He has just gone for a peemail and it took a lot of time to get him up and walking.

Mum is crying again..we are hoping to get more positive results tomorrow from the acupuncture..Mum and Dad hope so..

They say yelping is a sound that they hate…Mum says it’s a sound that hurts her heart…

We will let you all know how Forrest goes..our friends on fb thankyou for all the love you are sending..

Paw pats Doc,Marbles,Pickles,Cleo,Dinnermintz,Felix,Jock ,Oscar and of course Forrest xxx

  1. Please send Forrest lots of hugs and kisses from me and tell Mum and Dad I am thinking of them, and all of you as well. I know how she feels and I am also sad now. 😦 ♥ Big Hugs ♥


  2. Oh Forrest……it’s just awful getting old and hurting all the time isn’t it? We hope you can feel better very soon as your Mom and Dad and all your fur family worry so about you. They need you there to keep everyone in line! We’ll pray that the meds work and the acupuncture too. Whatever it takes to keep you feeling better and not in pain. My Mom often has leaky eyes when she looks at me if I struggle to stand or lie down – – I know I’ll not be here forever but you and I know how much our humans need us so we’ll hang on as long as we can, right my friend? I’m sending you a lot of POTP…..I hope you can feel it………….

    Love, Sammy


  3. Many prayers for you dear Forrest, and for your family. We have made a prayers badge for you, but do not think we have an email to send to you. If you write to us, we will share. Hugs to all.


  4. Dear Bev and Forrest we are so very sorry to read about that Forrest is feeling so poorly…
    Madi says to whisper in his ear she is sending potent kitty kisses and I’m sending hugs.
    Ann sent us a lovely POTP badge for him
    We posted a POTP for him the link is below.


    Love Cecilia and Madi


  5. Oh we are so sorry that Forrest is hurting so badly. It is just so hard when they get older. Just know that he knows you are trying to help him and love him so much. Sending you lots of good thoughts.


  6. There is nothing more heart rending then having someone you love in pain and not being able to do much about it. Acupuncture is a great thing – I do it weekly following an accident that mangled a leg a bit and it really helps. Here’s hoping Forrest is feeling better and the vets can give him some relief. You will be in our thoughts.

  9. Mom Kim here – sure do hope the med and the acupuncture work well and soon for Forrest; having Beagles in my life for over 13 years means I am all too familiar with spinal and disk diseases – not to mention older pups. Hugs and prayers to you all.


    1. Kim thankyou..sadly the damage to the discs in Forrest neck will not go away..he is at risk of them causing real damage..his poor old heart is enlarged and the lymph node next to it is big..he is a stress head bless him so at 12 it is cruel to put him through a surgery that will not be a certain outcome..we worry that he would have a rotten boring life if he could not be him..so this week is his Barkit list..naughty foods and lot’s of fun and family visiting..next wek he will get his wings here at home surrounded by love..a hard decision but the best for our sweet old boy …Loves Bev xx
