|He's just a big hunk of dog!|
|Benny is VERY sweet and gentle|
Benny had to go to Kolar's this past Saturday. He had some bloody discharge from his nose. Dr. Kolar thinks he had a cold and that he probably has ehrlichia and that his bloody nose was a sign of it. I had them keep him until Tuesday so that way they could monitor him and change any medication that might be necessary.
While Benny was at the vet Sweetheart started coughing. ARGH! Sooo, Les took Sweetheart in Tuesday and Dr. Kolar thinks she got the Benny Bug. She is now on antibiotics for seven days I believe. The cough hasn't slowed her down a bit. She is still wild and bouncy and silly.
Benny is now home and looking and feeling SO much better. The pictures of him above are from today and he looks like a different dog, all bright eyed. He no longer growls at the other dogs and he doesn't 'guard' the food bowl. He is very gentle, sweet and laid back.
Ollie came back. She kept pooping in the house. I think of it was that she was bored and needed another dog. I also think she still had some residual stomach issues. She is also on antibiotics again. So that makes three dogs we have on pills. Luckily Les is overseeing the medication and that is a big help to me. Benny will be on doxycycline for four weeks to make sure the ehrlichia is under control.
