obviously the term "stupid dog" does not apply in this case

happy birthday to my Rex

who celebrates his 15th birthday today. (He's a shelter dog; we know within a few weeks how old he is, so I figured there was no better day on which to celebrate his birthday.)

The birthday boy and his sister are presently sleeping off a hearty breakfast that was preceded by a trip to the neighborhood dog park. He gave me a bad scare in April with a strange seizure whose effects lingered for days, but has amazed and delighted his vet and me with a full recovery. He's still old, his hind legs are still creaky, and he has these moments of geriatric brain lapse. But he still jumps up and comes up tail a-waggin' when it's walk time, and the other day, when I had brought some new treats home, amazed me by plopping his arthritic butt on the floor and commencing to volunteer every trick he ever learned.

thanks

for your suggestions and sympathies. I did not know you could give aspirin to dogs. He seems to be a bit better today anyway. Unfortunately Buddy's suggestion is unlikely to work since Koki is castrated and he chases French poodles since he does not consider them to be real dogs, but rather a strange species of rabbit and therefore fair game.

Poor Koki

Found this article CB, perhaps it helps??

willow bark perhaps? long the lines of marye's aspirin suggestion. Arnica is good too, for fighting infection.

Scratch behind his ears for me, and tell him am wishing him to feel better soon.

poor little guy!

If the vet didn't give you any pain meds for him, you might just give him aspirin. True, not herbal, but might help. Healing vibes to poor Koki.
