Allergic Reaction

We’ve had an incredibly busy last week or so. Haven’t had a chance to update to let everyone know that Beignet is doing very well. Her eye turned out to be a severe, prolonged allergic reaction – so no tumor! It was so hard to hear that as an option right after I was told by the amazing vet, where she often medical boards while I’m at work, that things were worsening. So glad that is behind us. We definitely appreciate Dr. Torres from Southern Hills checking on her everyday while Dr. Brad was away on vacation. We’d be absolutely lost without our Southern Hills vet team as well as Dr. Turner, Dr. Saunders and crew at PetStar of Bossier where she medical boards. Beignet is one lucky dog that’s for sure to have so many people that love her! Anyways, she’s behaving at the moment and had a great glucose curve yesterday after switching from Novolin N to Humalin N a week ago. We will post again soon when things slow down. Think we’d all like to be spending our Monday morning like Beignet in the pic above! Have a great week – we plan on it!

I'm a wiener dog obsessed mom of Beignet (long haired dark red brindle) and Andouille Sausage (short hair red brindle) as well as Boudin the cat. When I'm not spending my time caring for my dachshund divas and crazy cat, I'm also a general pediatrician. My background is therefore in the care of little humans and not animals. I am not a veterinarian so am therefore not an expert on animal medical care. This blog is intended to chronicle Beignet's battle mainly with diabetes, but also chronic pancreatitis and suspected jejunal inflammatory bowel disease. We hope to help others, but you should always speak with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet's care. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
