|' Rosie '|
The vet was here Friday morning for the last round of vaccinations and I got the final test results for Rosie on her PSSM blood test. It was negative. So that’s 2 negatives after the first one was positive. He said it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have it, he’s still suspicious that she might have it because of the first test. The only way to be totally sure is to do a muscle biopsy, which I’m not going to do. He suggested the best thing to do is to keep her on the PSSM diet and exercise regimen she’s on. So that’s what I’m going to do and see how it goes.
Personally, I think her first test came back positive because of her Lyme’s. I think it could have affected the test. She’s almost done with her doses of doxycycline and I’ll see how she seems when she’s totally finished with the medication. I’ve been longeing her lightly almost every day, just some easy walk and trot for a few minutes before she goes out. Our herd goes out all day from around 7 a.m.-7p.m. or later some nights. They travel back and forth from the front to back fields which cover around 30 acres up and down hills so she’s getting plenty of exercise during the day. She’s also sporting a grazing muzzle to cut down on her consumption of grass, which she resents when I put it on her in the morning. Like I used to hate it when my mother told me “ It’s for your own good” I’m sure she doesn’t care one bit when I tell her the same thing.
