An Update on Echo


Some of you have asked if there is any update on Echo, since I mentioned she might be sick again in the post about her a while back. After several tests and uncomfortable biopsies of her nose, we have determined that she does not have cancer or other more serious malady at this time. However, she is still, as my mother would say, "snot-nosing around here" so we're still looking for a definitive answer. The cultures done on her nose indicate allergies and a strep infection. We've been treating for that and so far, she's still producing unwanted amounts of, well, snot. She's got the veterinary community befuddled and tied around her little paw at the same time. I think the vet is going to recommend trying a different antibiotic to see if we get a better result. In the meantime, we're just going to enjoy the fact that she's not as sick as she could be, for sure. Thanks for asking about her!
