Since you all are new to Theo’s story, it’s important to share that he wasn’t dealt a great hand when it comes to his health. We have had some serious scares with GI problems, one that sent him to the ER for a night with severe dehydration. Theo has been on a limited ingredient, grain free, gluten free, soy free, corn free diet for almost 6 months and takes a daily probiotic. It finally seems like we have his stomach under control, but I am always nervous. That’s why his one year check-up at his vet was so important.
We were really lucky to have found an amazing partner with Rittenhouse Veterinary in Philadelphia. Despite drawing blood, two shots, and a scary tabletop, Theo made it through his appointment with only one cry. Unfortunately the side effects to his two shots were a bit stronger than expected, but nothing out of the ordinary. He has been having a tough time with stairs, and hasn’t been able to sit, but his spirits are high and he’s been loving all of the attention!
