I've never heard of milk thistle. Any place would have it, too? Or will I have to go to a specialty place?

Thanks so much! I'm so nervous for the vet to call today and tell me if it was caused by Brucella or not. From what I've read, if it was caused by Brucella, it'll never go completely away, we'll just have to keep it in check.

Justin's making fun of me because I said I was thinking about putting the TV in there with her so she could watch it. The radio is keeping her semi-company, but I still feel bad for her stuck in the crate all the time. I gave her one of my old stuffed animals (that I've managed to save from being destroyed by either her or Kingsley) and she's cuddling with it now. Poor Spongebob.

i leave the tv on for my deaf dog... it keeps her company too... i understand. Jaz loves watching animal planet. It is definitly hard to keep them in the crate but you can work on some commands while she is in there...such as the watch me game, sit, wait, down. Work on all your commmands. The crate can help with those things because she must have eye contact to come out of the crate to go potty, or must wait so she doesn't bolt out of the crate.  I don't make fun of you with the TV.....

Will this week get any worse?

I got to work, only to find out that my pathological liar co-worker had called my director and told her all sorts of nasty things, and the director gave her permission to handle the situation as she saw fit, and so she told me to go find another job.

This will really help with the vet bills.

Great news! I talked to the vet last night, and there's no fracture!! So no more being stuck in the kennel! We still have to regulate her activity, obviously, but so far she's been doing great. The infection did spread to her lymphnodes, though, so he put her on another antibiotic for two months, amoxycillin (sp?). He said as long as we keep her on the amox. for two months and the others for 3 months, this should be taken care of. Oh, and it wasn't caused by the brucella bacteria.

Also, my co-worker called me yesterday morning and asked if I'd be coming in or if I needed to take yesterday off, too, because of everything. So basically...sh e must not have had the authority to fire me, and she's now covering her @ss and saying I willingly took Tuesday off. She's still giving me the silent treatment, but oh well.

AND my dad gets here tonight and tomorrow is Justin's birthday! It's a happy day here! Except that I have to do a few hours of mad cleaning to try to get the house decent looking...

Thanks!

Now if I can only figure out how to reattach Spongebob's spatula, crabby patty, and the corner of his head...

Well, it's good to know that throughout all of this, she hasn't lost her ability to guard me from the vacuum. I don't know what I'd do if I thought I'd have to face the vacuum alone!!

So glad to hear she's doing much better! Yes, amoxycillin is very good for clearing up any infection she may have. We've had to give it to our cats many times. Start feeling better, Laika! And I hope your mommy is doing okay too!
