I think that title is the first time I’ve used the phrase “one sick puppy” for an ACTUAL sick puppy. My doggie was sick, and last night we were at the emergency vet until after midnight. His white blood cell count was high, he spiked a fever, was lethargic and overall just not acting like a puppy. We already knew he had an infection, we took him to the regular vet last week. We got a doctor we’d never seen before (we’ve been going to this vet for years) who prescribed an oral antibiotic that he kept puking up. We found out last night it was one that shouldn’t be given to puppies, hence the problem.
At any rate, my day is starting out a bit slower. I was exhausted by the time we got home, hadn’t gotten a chance to have dinner, overslept this morning. The good part is doggie is WAY better today. His fever is gone, he’s got a bit of perk in his step again, and while he’s not his usual tasmanian-devil self, he’s definitely on the mend.
Very much looking forward to a tiny sailing getaway over the 4th of July weekend. We all need it.
