Bear is very sick...

Bear is in the emergency animal hospital because, early this morning, she could not breath. The intial diagnosis was a severe case of pneumonia and abcessed teeth, which had perforated thru the gum into the nasal passages.

I had taken her to another vet two weeks ago for the cough, and was given pills for lung disease due to old age!

Friday afternoon update: The vet called. Bear does have pneumonia and they will treat her for that. Later next week she will have surgery to repair the perforations and remove the bad teeth.

Saturday update: We got to bring Bear home late Friday night on a watch-and-see basis. Her appetite is not good, but the coughing has almost stopped. She is having trouble with her back legs, they seem to "run away" from her sometimes. After getting thru this, the next step is surgery. Just hoping she is up to it.
