Luna and Abby (formerly Kachina)

We were really lucky this week...we were so close to losing Luna. I have had dogs all my life...in Dec.2014...we brought Luna home...what an amazing dog she is. In Nov.2015 we brought home Kachina(now Abby)...Recently Luna wasn't herself...started with appetite was not the same...low energy etc... after a couple of days brought her to the vet...no obvious findings...couple more days no improvement...back to the vet...blood work done...terrifying results...rushed her to DMV...they started aggressive treatment immediately...but was still critical...worried her heart could stop any time...she's only 3...4 days in hospital..2 in ICU... Dr. Sauve at DMV is amazing! she is a critical care specialist...diagnosis was Addison's Disease...Today (Friday Aug.5/2016) we go to bring her home...yes she will have to be on pills for the rest of her long and happy life...can't wait to get her home!
