This has been a tough week for the pupster. First we’ve got his little bout of whatever after we picked him up at the boarders on Monday, then he’s stuck in a car ride from hell and back as we go to Tucson. Then today, his ears inflate to the thickness of a checkbook and he scratches himself so badly, blood squirts everywhere. he can’t walk two steps without shaking his head and flopping his ears.
So yeah, we just now got back from the vets. And let me just say, I love our vet as much as I love our doctor. They agreed to stay later on a Friday to squeeze the little guy in so they could see him. So the hubby and I raced across town, mere minutes before rush-hour gets it’s start on the 101 and made it in record time.
The Doc just thinks that something bit him and he’s having an allergic reaction. He gave him two shots and some meds and sent us on our way. By the time we made it home, the swelling had already gone down a lot and the head shaking and flapping has also cut down.
We’re sure he’ll be fine. We just need to set the timer to remind us to let him out to pee every hour or so (from the diuretic shot). Mind you, as I was typing the line above, he threw up again.
Poor little guy. I think I’ll go sit on the couch and cuddle him so he’ll stay still and rest some.
