Sasha's anemia continues to improve. However, with her last blood draw, the vet thought it looked like she had an ongoing infection, despite the antibiotics that she's been taking. So just to make sure we weren't missing an intra-abdominal source of infection, Sasha had an ultrasound.

The ultrasound came back clean -- no areas of infection, and no tumors. Such a relief. But she weighed in at half a pound less than last week -- quel horror! She needs calories, stat!
In the meantime, we're just watching and waiting. Sasha now gets a ridiculous amount of medication at mealtime, which she of course hates and tries to spit out. Ungrateful pug. She's also continuing to be really weird about what she will and will not eat. We think her tastebuds are being affected by all the meds she's taking.

Cleo and Deedee continue to respect the elder pug's space. They seem to recognize that she's not as sturdy as she was.
|we are certainly happy to eat whatever sasha won't eat, mama|
