I learned over the weekend that the response to Chance’s story has been more incredible then I had imagined. Traffic to this blog and the Wishbone Pet Rescue web site has exceeded several thousand each day, with page requests reaching tens of thousands on peak days. Imagine that… I’m so overwhelmed.
So.. I’ve resolved to be more diligent in giving you regular updates on Chance’s progress and his journey to a new home. We are getting close to that.. and I promise to take you with him every step of the way.
Last Thursday Chance had another vet visit for a blood draw and urine analysis. A complete panel was performed so it was sent out for service. I just received the results this morning. I’m very pleased to tell you all that his BUN has dropped to 51, his creatine to 4.6, and his phosphorus remains in the normal range.
I wouldn’t yet say he is on a solid path for recovery, but it is going very well and given what he has been through, it is remarkable and could hardly ask for better progress.
His appetite has improved considerably. He is less picky about his food, is more active, much more alert, and more interactive with us. A couple weeks ago we had to coax him to play. Now, that is all he wants to do. I work from home and spend all day at my computer.. some days I can barely get work done. He constantly is in my lap with his favorite squeaky toy or furry wubby.
We are anxious for him to find his new home and start a new life, but we will miss him terribly. He’s been a joy to have in our lives.
