"Seehafer Nursing Home"

Here at the Seehafer Farm we have our share of older animals and with that comes doctor visits, special foods, vitamins and medicine. Bubba is our oldest dog at 16 and Angel our oldest cat at 16 too. Both have arthritis and Angel has Feline Hyperthyroidism. Both require shots, medication and vitamins.

Katie (13 years old) is next with diabetes. She was just diagnosed with it last week. We're going to try to control it with diet. Right now she's on ear drops for a bacteria infection in them and medication for a bacteria infection in her intestines. In the fridge is Katie's ear drops and Trigger's antibiotics located next to the lemon juice...

Trigger (age 9) is our rabbit. He has a abscessed tooth. With his age, the length of a rabbit's tooth and the cost of removal, we've decided not to put him through that. He'll have to be on antibiotics the rest of his life. And there's Tootie, she's about 8 years old. She a beagle mix. Beagles have trouble with their neck vertebrate. We've got to be careful with her, she had an "episode" - shook with pain- and had to be put on anti-inflammatory medicine but she is doing much better now. As a matter of fact, they are all doing much better now. Between Dr. Gable, Dr. Harris and the crew at Vetmed in Mount Juliet and us here at the farm, we've got everyone under control. Thank you over there at Vetmed!! Seehafer Farm loves ya'll!!
