Little Miss Jada Kiss or Jada is a black and tan purebred miniature pinscher. Her ears are naturally floppy, as my husband and I had decided not to get them cropped. Unlike a few min pins (miniature pinscher for short) who do not have their ears cropped, they do not stand up at all. I am happy we didn't get them cropped. The "floppiness" seems to add to her personality.
The last issue still remains ongoing. Just after she turned one year old, I had to run her down to the emergency vet. She had developed bloody stool, vomiting and was not eating or drinking. That day she had received fluids due to dehydration and some medication. They weren't exactly sure of what it was but I remember them mentioning something about her pancreas. She was on a strict bland diet until we were able to see our regular vet. She did have a follow-up visit to our vet but by then she was doing well. She had continued bouts with this on and off over the next few years and it wasn't until October 2010 she was finally diagnosed with pancreatitis, an inflammation of her pancreas due to diet. Now that we know exactly what we are dealing with, we are able to recognize the symptoms and treat it in time. She is on prescription vet food, (currently on Purina Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric dry food) and treats have been limited.
Over the years, Jada has developed quite a wardrobe. She doesn't wear clothes all the time, as she likes to run around in the buff, but she is very acceptable and tolerant to wearing the outfits. You will definitely see some of her outfits throughout my blog.
So that's the run down on our little Jada girl! Of course there are so many more stories to share but again, that's why I have this blog! If you have any questions about Jada's health issues, feel free to comment me!
