“I don't believe that old cliche that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can't sit still” – Ashton Kutcher
There're times we should not give up our pets to euthanasia. Pepsi's story is a good example.
It was the end of June, 2014. Pepsi has been sick for 6 weeks now. He was actually eating well, but was extremely tired, didn’t play, had trouble breathing. Joan was scared and desperate. She knew Pepsi was not doing good. Then her friend recommended Joan to see vets at Animal Wellness Clinic of Tamarac.
Pepsi was removed from antibiotics, and instead was put on Immune System Stimulant and probiotics. September follow-up re-check showed that Pepsi was getting back to his normal self: enjoying sun in the patio, a bit more active playing with Carrot, Fishy, and Mr.Blue, eating well, no coughing and sneezing, no nasal or ocular discharge. Pepsi has even gained a few ounces. But x-rays were still unchanged.
But Joan and Dr.Zapata didn’t loose faith in Pepsi. As a reward for Pepsi’s recovery Joan’s daughter presented him a ladder that he could now use to climb to Joan’s bed and sleep on her face.
Pepsi and German Sheppards, or Cats ain't v.s. dogs
One of these adorable German Sheppards got petted by Pepsi!
In her turn, Joan took him for a two weeks vacation in Bronson, Florida in December, 2014. There Joan found out Pepsi had a thing for German Sheppards – he met a handsome black German Sheppard he fell in love with. Pepsi used to follow that black German Sheppard everywhere and even gave him a kiss. Pepsi also petted with his paw another German Sheppard.
In February, 2015 Pepsi came for his recent. X-rays showed Pepsi’s chest was clear, and he now weights 9 pounds. Dr. Darko even advised for Pepsi to be put on a diet. Definitely, Pepsi doesn’t require any surgery.
This fight for Pepsi’s life took 10 months. But Joan says everyday was worth it as now she can see Pepsi creating his own new games, and bringing joy to her life.
If Pepsi could talk he would probably tell his mum Joan "Thank you for saving my life!".
