As I write this post, I don’t know what will be happening with Matilda later on Sunday. I am about to go to sleep, and Matilda is resting quietly, but has had a hard day. She had a recurrence of an episode of extreme panting and difficulty walking. This time I could not get her to eat, and so I cannot give her any medication for her arthritis. Last time this happened, I thought I had lost her, but she bounced back. I’m not sure what will be happening this time. She only seems to be able to walk a few steps. We will all sleep, and then I will take her to the emergency vet if she hasn’t improved.
