Hot dog

Took Q-tip for a follow up exam by Doc Casey. Because she's not been exhibiting any unusual behaviour over the last week since her... excitement, Casey reduced her meds by a couple of pills.

He surmised that her unusual symptoms were due to her overheated state, which caused her heart and lungs to stress out to the point of inflammation which caused some minor tissue damage somewhere inside. Guess it was our mistake to take her for walkies in such scorching weather.

For now, we'll be administering a quarter tablet of Fortecor 5 and a capsule of anti-oxidant daily to strengthen her heart.

Next follow up will be in a month's time, then we'll see what kind of long-term meds she'll be needing, if necessary.
