The Pete & Ruthie report

I took Pete and Ruthie to the vet this morning for their annual vaccinations and exam.

Pete’s liver function is back to normal and the vet says we can discontinue the liver medication we’ve been giving him. He suggests a re-test in three months to see whether we need to resume it.

That’s good news for a couple of reasons:

  1. It means he’s healthier than we thought and
  2. It will save us about $180 on liver meds.

He also confirmed that Ruthie is mostly blind in her right eye, but otherwise is in pretty good shape for a 14-year-old dog (that’s 108 in dog years).

Here’s a photo from January, 2006, when Pete was just two months old and we lived in Thorntown, Ind.
