Several of you have asked how everyone is feeling after our rash of illness and injury, so here's an up to date report.
Sky's foot has been fine since I removed the stone from under his pad. He never licked it again and is as good as new.
Tsar's insect bite is completely healed and the hair has grown in over it.
Fudge's red, itchy ear is fine now after increasing his antihistamines and cleaning the ear every day for a week. Keeping Morgan from licking it is the tricky part. This hot, humid weather is rough on long eared dogs. They need to get air to their ears to keep them dry and clean.
Samba has a mixed report. She finished her antibiotics for her bladder infection and is feeling much better. She has stopped her constant pacing and is sleeping thru the night.
Yesterday we saw Dr B for a follow up. We took a urine sample and it was much improved. Everything had come back to normal except that there was still some blood in her urine. She's taking a second round of antibiotics at a much higher dosage in hopes of knocking out the bacteria once and for all. If she still has blood in the urine after this, we'll have to test for a bladder stone. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.
Everyone is feeling well but restless. They can't wait for cooler weather to get here so they can run and play.
