Happy 12th Birthday, Stone!

Happy Birthday, Old Man!  There were times that we didn’t think Stone would see his 12th birthday, but he did and he’s doing pretty well, except for the stenosis in his back.  His 12th birthday brought a trip to the vet for his bi-annual wellness exam, and steroid injections for his back.  He’s feeling a bit better now, and can negotiate the two little steps off the back deck with ease again.  He still has some bowel control issues, but he is in less pain.  We’ve also started him on the new Dasuquin Advanced formula for joints and we’re hoping to see more ease of movement in a few weeks.  Stone’s lab work came back surprisingly normal for a boy his age and that is encouraging.  We are looking forward to celebrating his 13th birthday!
