New update on Akaya and SA

Akaya is doing well

Has had a couple of very small breakdowns always seems to be the same places elbows and back leg heals. Had a small break down around her face which seemed strange.
I think she also could have been digging in something. I have her on her same regiment of supplements. And still bath her every Saturday morning.

Winters coming and she hates to have her mineral oil treatment in the bathrub. So I bought a tub that I can hook up the hot water to and set it up in garage. Tried it this weekend. What I like is you can walk her into it. It was a struggle first but once she was in it was OK. I think this will work through winter. We both get to stay dry and warm.

I don’t have to lift my 120lb baby into a tub lol.

Oh Yes She Is Holding And Maintaining her weight well. My baby girl is doing wonderful. She has a follow up with the dermatologist specialist in Dallas  in December he has been great.  I always keep a course of antibiotics at hand. So if she starts a breakout I catch it before it gets bad.we have got our schedule worked out well. Everything is going smoothly.

I hope my information has helped someone out there with their babies.

Here’s a pic of the tub. You can walk you dog into it and she weighs 120 and fit just right. It drains slightly slow but I think that might be because of the mineral oil. So I flushed the drain hoes real well after.

She’s doing great… if anyone wants to know I bought tub from amazon for $188.00 it is very well made. I also put a bath mat in it as she has a thing about not stepping on tile or strange surfaces.

She’s my baby. That’s my mum in the background. She is a akayas  2nd mum.

I’m originally from England but have lived in America for over 34 years. I was heartbroken when Akaya was diagnosed with SA.I thought I was going to lose her until I came across the Akita Unleashed website, and the stories gave me so much hope I just jumped right on it did not waist a day. I got everything that the owners suggested and got to work because, I was told by many that there was no cure the best and most humane thing would be to put her out of her misery. But she's my baby. No that's not in her or my plan for life. I was going to make my baby better just as the stories showed me. This is a life commitment to her from me that she will have a happy healthy life until she becomes an old lady with me. I know there is a possibility of breakouts but I truly believe if I continue to bath her and give her medications, the possibilities are far less. You have to stay on it forever. Never slake... this is part of our life now.
