My rescue dog was diagnosed with Myasthenia gravis about six weeks after I adopted him. In one way, I was relieved hearing this and in another, I was sad and scared. What does Myasthenia gravis mean in a dog? Or better yet, let me share the journey to his diagnosis and beyond.
It’s been a hot summer and with access to cheap airfare from Punta Gorda Airport, I’m tempted to jet off to a Chicago hotel for a cool fall getaway.
