A spring photo of Odin, where he is happy and feeling good. He is not looking so happy today
Odin started last week to bleed from one side of his nose. Then our vet took blood tests to find out the reason for this. He found out, that Odin had an infection and otherwise his blood test looked good. There were no indications for other illnesses. Odin got 2 kind of medication and we hoped the best. The vet told me, that Odin could continue the bleeding until Monday
In the weekend, Odin started to bleed from his nose many, many times. I did my best to stop it and to keep him calm. Didn’t leave him alone at all, because he was scared, when he started to bleed, which I found understandable
It became worse and worse and more often with the bleeding, so I contacted the vet again and Odin got more tests and X-ray and needed then to go to another Vet Hospital for Endoscopy and other kind of tests, which happened yesterday. Two times of sedation in one day can be a little tough, so our Vet decided to keep him in the clinic last night to secure, they could help him, if anything would happen
I’m happy to be able to say, that nothing bad happened. Now we know, that Odin has an infection in one side of his nose and they took more blood tests today to find out, why he got the infection from beginning, to avoid this to be repeated. We should get these answers Friday
Odin came home in the afternoon, happy to be home again and I was very happy to see him again. He is now very tired and I will need to keep him as calm as possible for the next 2 weeks. No long walks and nothing exciting, because this can start his bleeding again. I got new medication for him and need to give him an injection daily to avoid more bleeding the next days
Odin has been shaved many places in the last week, so I decided to share a more happy photo of him
Thank you very much for your kind support
NB: I don’t know, how much I will be online for the next days and thank you for your patience

My heart goes out to both you and Odin. You both must be exhausted. I’m glad that nothing bad was found and that he just needs to rest and get rid of the infection. I hope that YOU can get some rest, too, Sweet Irene. I know you’ve been stressed and worried. I’ll try to send strength and calm in your direction. Take care. A lot of people wish you both well.
Thank you very much for your kindness, Linda. I am exhausted and I will go to sleep in very short time, even if the time is not that late yet, but I need rest too.
Wish you a good day.
So glad to hear Odin will be fine with plenty of rest and care. I know this gives you much needed peace of mind. Best wishes to you both. ❤
Thank you very much Felicia and yes, you are right.
I am soooooo happy that all is getting well again. What a relief? All the best and fast healing for Odin 💖
Thank you Erika and yes, a huge relief.
Poor Odin. It’s so hard seeing a pet in pain. But, I am glad he is going to be ok.
Thank you Wayne and yes, it is difficult not to be able to help for serious.
It is always so upsetting when our dogs are not well- I hope Odin gets better soon. You reminded me of when our dog had bleeding gums- it would not stop- it turned out he had a blood problem but was fixed with medicine and it never came back. I hope Odin is well soon Senidng hugs
Thank you very much Lisa and good to hear, that your dog got the needed help too.
I am sorry to hear that, but I am glad he is better now!
Thank you Dolly, I’m glad too.
Oh best wishes to Odin, a hug for him and one for you. ❤
Thank you very much, Colleen.
It’s such a worry when we don’t know what is going on and can’t fix it for our Beloved dogs. I’m so glad he is responding to treatment. Hope he is fully recovered soon Irene💛
Thank you very much Val and you are right, it is more than just exhausting, when we can’t fix it for them.
He looks so cute in that photo! 💖💖💖. I really really hope he will recover nicely and become a happy dog again. Sending you lots of love and healing energy! 💖💖💖. Take care!
Thank you, Trini. Odin is usually very happy.
Oh my goodness I’m so relieved there was no bad ending to this post and I was almost afraid to read on. I know there are still challenges ahead bit I wish you both the best and speedy recovery. Sending many hugs and healing vibes. Xoxoxo
Thank you very much, Rhapsody.
You are very welcome Irene xo
I’m so glad Odin has just an infection. Thank you for the update! 🙂
Thank you LeeAnn.
Good to know Irene, Odin is on the mend and you have some answers.
Thank you, Gary
Oh Irene. Poor Odin.. I hope he is soon feeling better my friend.. What a worry for you. And of course you have to look after him.. I hope they find the course of the infection.. Not nice for him to go through..
Sending healing thoughts my friend.. and much Love. xxx ❤
Thank you for your kind concern Sue. Odin is now very tired and sleep much, which is healing itself, he eats his food with fair appetite too, so I hope that he will be back very soon.
I hope so too Irene.. ❤
I’m happy Odin is is okay and hopefully the meds help with the infection. Thank you for sharing this, Irene.
Thank you Sylvester and today has been a good day, no bleeding at all, just a very tired Odin.
You’re welcome, Irene! I’m thankful to hear that..
When you loved one is unwell it’s even worse than being unwell on your own! Speediest recovery!
Thank you, Ann 🙂
Oh, Irene! My heartfelt prayers go out to you and Odin. May he continue to get better. When one we love gets sick it is so hard. I’m sending Much Love to all of you! 💖💖💖💖💖💖
Thank you Amy, today is not as good and I do still await answer to the tests.
Oh Irene, I am so sorry to read about Odin, and hope that he gets better soon. Shame. I am sure just being home with you makes him feel better. Hugs to Odin. x
Thank you for your kind concern Lynne. Odin should be on the right way, even if he is still bleeding sometimes. I had visit by the vet again today by same reason and got more medication for him.
Thinking of you both. Just so sad he is not well. Lets hope this medication helps him to heal nicely. ❤
Thank you Lynne, I hope so too.
So sorry Irene! Sweet Odin!
Thank you Lynn, he is on right way now.
