.... But Not Just Sitting Around

In case, I'm not being clear.... Travis isn't just laying around withering away. He's still quite perky and active. Today, we did some agility. As soon as I unclipped the leash, he bolted for the nearest jump about 50 feet away. I do love that boy's zest for life. He is just so unusual for a greyhound. He ran perfectly fine and then fetched his bumper for a little while. He also has made it through 2 work days without an accident. He's still drinking a lot, but not as much as he was over the weekend. As always, he is a great eater. I've increased his food to see if we can put some weight back on him. So overall, he is doing well.

It's good to hear that he's still being "Travis"...
Is his heart rate still up?

Diabetes Insipidus?

Here's hoping you have an answer soon!!!!!

Ah Jen, I didn't know all this was happening to Travis. Do keep us posted on what the Doc says. It's definitely a good thing that he wants to continue to be active.

I never thought of that, but you know I had a friend that a greyhound that had Diabetes Insipidus! Same symptoms as Travis. Gives her special drops and her grey has been doing great ever since.
