In the spring we had lots of foot injuries. Lola had a bite on her toe that swelled up to an enormous size. She's all healed now and back to racing around the yard.
Sebastian went to the doctor this week, too. He had a Lyme booster and had to have his skin checked. He's very itchy and has a couple of sores on his skin that he won't leave alone. He'll be getting a medicated bath this weekend and we're increasing his antihistamines and fish oil. It may take a little time to get his skin back in condition after his adventures on the road, but we're working on it.
We're going to handle this in a certain order. First he prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxants. If that doesn't work or he gets worse, we'll do blood tests. We came home and I gave Noah his meds. He continued to pace, then after about an hour he laid down and fell asleep. It's the first time he's stopped pacing since 7 last night. He's still asleep and Rob and I are going to try to catch up on some of that lost sleep, too.
So, it's mostly wonderful news with a little excitement thrown in. That's life with dogs.
