Shadow Update

Happy to say I have GOOD news to report!


Shadow had her follow-up ultrasound two weeks ago. The abscesses in her liver that I told you about last month are gone. The nodule on her spleen remains the same, unchanged. 

So, the vet said we’re going to leave Shadow on the Denamarin long term. The Denamarin makes her tummy feel “weird” for a few hours, so she eats very little – if any – breakfast.  I’ve had to resign myself to that fact and just give her lunch instead of breakfast. 

Unrelated, she’s been shaking her head off and on for the past couple of weeks. Her right ear seems to have an excessive wax buildup on the inner flap and close to the canal. I clean it up with a warm, wet gauze pad every few days. Tomorrow morning I’m taking her to see Doc, just to be sure there’s no infection causing that waxy mess. I don’t think there is – it doesn’t smell bad, just “waxy” – but want to be sure. Shadow’s ears have always been clean, and free of infection since she was a puppy. I want to keep it that way as she gets older.  

Yummy, Healthy Treats!

Time for another review! Can you believe April is nearly over already? I certainly can’t believe it!

Today the girls and I are reviewing the Sojos Blueberry Cobbler flavor treats that our friend at Chewy.com sent us.


These treats are made in Minnesota with fresh, wholesome ingredients: oat flour, rolled oats, blueberries, canola oil, vanilla, eggs, and honey.

Neither Shadow nor Ducky like the texture of blueberries, so this is a good way to get the girls to eat them. They are a perfect size for when I don’t want to spoil their appetite with too many between-meal snacks. And they love these bone-shaped treats. And the best part? They don’t aggravate Shadow’s reflux, either! (Just like the treats we reviewed last month!)

Disclaimer: As a Chewy Influencer, I received one box of Sojos Blueberry Cobbler flavor dog treats from Chewy.com in exchange for an honest review. I received no other compensation for this post.


Ducky, Shadow, and I would like to thank Sugar the Golden Retriever and Oz the Terrier for hosting this Chewy blog hop.
