Thanks for all your positive thoughts for Tom. After 24 hours on the Rimadyl, he was much improved. We will continue this for another week (maybe less). He is feeling good again and was even barking for his supper tonight!
On another note, my foster Buddy left to go to a different foster home. We had to switch dogs around this weekend to find out if one of our hounds would be good as an only dog. The family that currently has Buddy has had their eye on him for a while now. It would be a wonderful home for him. I do miss him though. I have told the family, if he comes back again, he most likely will not leave!
