Poor Tommy.

I was up in the night with Tommy who was being sick again. It started on Friday morning and is getting to be a bit of a worry now although I am wondering if it has something to do with the medicine he is having for his arthritis. When the vet started him on it she said that it may make him sick and if so there was something else that she could try him on. He is usually fine and has no problem with it but I have noticed that when he was getting to the end of one of the other bottles he had a bout of sickness so I’m wondering if perhaps in spite of a vigorous shaking every day if maybe some part of it remains in the bottom and it is that which is causing his sickness.

It was perhaps just as well that I was up and about early as it was the Grand Prix from India today and it was broadcast at 8:30 this morning and whilst I do record it I do prefer to watch it live if I can. I can’t say that it was an inspiring race but when it’s in progress there is always the chance that something will happen to raise the entertainment value so I still enjoyed it.

This afternoon me and Vicki took two friends to a local garden centre where we had lunch and then looked around. The trip was really to buy Christmas decorations although I did notice a few plants found their way in the shopping trolley. Whilst there I also noticed on a couple of occasions the annoying habit of referring to Christmas as the ‘Happy Holiday’!

Poor Tommy. I hope it's not the medicine causing it, especially if it is doing him some good.

oh, poor Tommy. I sure hope things improve. It's really hard to see our furry friends sick or suffering. Our Toby has had so many problems with some of the drugs we gave him recently and we were thinking he was about to go over the Rainbow Bridge. We stopped the drugs and he is doing so much better.

I have heard of some dogs not getting on well with the anti-inflammatory drugs for arthritis. Can have reactions like that, hope he is feeling better. xx
