...... Sorry for such a post..
Thank goodness for better testing of tick born issues.... He went in for a scuffed up pad that needed wrapping and a little antibiotic. Vet decided to go ahead with physical as she had the time...rather than wait until next weeks scheduled appointment. Ticks are just horrible here now..along with the diseases.
His gum color is good, ears..skin....no nausea...eating, drinking good. A little more panting but I think that was because his foot hurt.
Hope everyone has a great weekend...good trial results...
