A Brooklyn Dog

Meet Schlomo and his new life on 3 legs

Day 28 (Laser, Water, Acupuncture – geez)

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Weaning Schlomo off of Gabapentin with his hearing loss side effects. I will report on how that goes and if it remains temporary, which I hope. Fingers crossed!

Instead of writing much I thought to try tell a little story in pictures/clips with his treatments that he’s had this week. Busy little guy this one.

Uh oh. On the move again…

Exam room view. He couldn’t decide what to do about that blue guy.

Getting Laser. Cool as a cucumber.

Swimming again!

  2. Mascha, you KNOW I am loving these pictures! I almost can’t handle them all at once he’s just so adorable. The doggles? Come on. How could you stand it? He is just too cool (and I kind of think he knows it) but I also love that the blue thing is throwing him off his game a little, I agree Schlomes it’s weird looking.
    The picture and video of the acupuncture is wild I just can’t believe he’s fine with it he looks like a Schlomo porcupine! The swimming video is so great, I’m cheering him on like a fan at the swim meet – Gooooooooo Schlomooooooo! Why is it mesmerizing to watch his little paddling legs?
    He is doing so well and I am so happy for you both. What a fun post.

    PS. Did I miss the bit about his hearing loss on gaba?

      Uff. ..Yeah, I posted it under ask a Vet. Schlomo has sudden hearing loss (last two days), he can barely hear anything except for a high pitch whistle. He was never hard of hearing before. There are a few started topics online that link sudden hearing loss in dogs to Gaba but it isn’t a recorded side effect. It IS however listed on the human side. So we’re going off Gaba and we’ll see if it is temporary or permanent. I think Schlomo has had enough complications by now!

      I know… the doggles. I have been watching his swimming clip over and again, it relaxes me 🙂

  3. Schlomo it was like spaw day for you my friend! I hope all the treatments are helping you feel so much better. Sure looks pawesome!

  4. By the way that is really interesting about the hearing loss. I didn’t see your post over there and will check it out. I hope all is better now.
