Our Canine Kids Springtime Health Issues

Each of our canine kids have their annoying health issues this springtime.
  Dolly (the Weimaraner) tore out a nail at day care 2 weeks ago and it's still painful and healing. I wrap it up at night and medicate it. She's also had horrible stomach/digestive issues for the last couple of days and is now on a mild antibiotic and immodium for inflammatory bowel problems.
  Franklin the Dachshund seems to like to dig in a nest of spiders and got a 3rd spider bite this spring on his front paws. So he gets Benadryl (it works) and the swelling has gone down.
  Sprite our 14 year old foster dachshund got a urinary tract infection (we caught it on day 2) and is on antibiotics. He wouldn't sleep through the night for a week, wanting to be let out at 2 or 3 am. Now his heart murmur seems to be limiting him to short walks.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
