Maybe in order to get his fair share of attention back from that usurper Jack, Scott's been about as time consuming as triplets lately.
On Saturday I realized that Scott had a debilitating wound that had abscessed. Not too much of a problem. Between Elaine, dog nurse extraordinaire at http://www.heavenscentfarms.com/ , and my awesome vet, we figured antibiotics and soaking would have him back on his paws in no time.
Oddly, after an initial improvement, Scott got much worse on Sunday. Yes, in accordance with Murphy's law, it had to be a Sunday.
So first thing this morning, I carried (literally) Scott to the vet.
In his infinite and never failing wisdom, my vet figured out that there was more to this than met the eye, and did a Lyme test. Sure 'nuff, Scott has wicked bad Lyme and also ehrlichiosis. So now he's on two antibiotics and feeling horrible.
At least he's all diagnosed and medicated, but really, did I need this drama?
