So we took Memphis to the vet this weekend, and it turns out she has gained TWENTY FOUR pounds since Halloween. She has gone from 51 lbs to 75 lbs. Why, you ask? How on earth would a dog gain that much weight unless her parents were irresponsible twats? One word people: Prednisone.
She was diagnosed with IBD last fall, and put on the steroid then. And now, she eats anything she can. Like sticks. And plants. And mail. And toilet paper. Who knew toilet paper was that high calorie??
So now we’re looking at other methods of treating this. Other medications and maybe even some acupuncture. Yes. I am desperate.
So there she is. My loveable little porker.
