Honoring the elderly dogs

Today I am honoring one of my oldest patients, Kali, a basenji, who is 19-years young this month. She has her problems we have been working on for some time: Hypothyroidism, severe spinal fusion and disc disease but we have been able to keep her mostly off pharmaceuticals which means she has beautiful bloodwork (Liver and Kidneys get gold stars!) Note: she still has a curl to her tail. Did you know when your pet is taking NSAIDS and even the much-promoted (and marketed) gabapentin, the organs are working harder to detoxify?
