It is now over 2 years since Joey had his incident with Simparica. He is aging well and his kidney values remain constant. No one expected this. He eats his kidney diet well and has not had to have any subQ liquids. He does continue to have tremors and twitching but they don't seem to bother him.
A new friend met him and asked Joey a yes/no question. Joey's head shook up and down. My friend was amazed that I had trained him so well!! I did have to later admit that he had no idea what she asked and that it was part of his condition. Ha!
Anyway, he is almost 14 1/2. I cherish him everyday and have loved raising this wonderful breed! This forum is a fantastic resource for information and support. Thanks to you all again!
