(The photo was taken a couple of days after it happened..he looked so sad and confused)
My 4-legged best friend, Bailey, suffered a stroke the end of July. Being only 7 1/2 it was quite a shock! The stroke affected his right side. At the Vets they also tested him for diseases that could have possibly contributed to the stroke. They took a blood test and found a positive reading for one with a long name ending is 'osis' and caused from a tick. I need to have the Vet spell out the name for me! That's when they found he had a high temp resulting from an infection. I have been playing nursemaid and trying to come up with creative ways to give him 2 pills in the morning and 2 more at night. He is still running a fever from the infection.
Until today his temp had been at 103, today it had dropped a little. Bailey is on doxycycline and starting his 3rd week. He needs to continue on it until the end of August. After the first of the year they want to do another series of blood tests on him to be sure there are no further signs of the disease.
Luckily he is improving, not as fast as I would like but there are parts of the day he acts like nothing was ever wrong..love those days!!
Thank you for being understanding and I have started to visit some of my fav blogs..it will just take a little time!!!
