Last night Chance still had diarrhea. Granted it was only 2x he went yesterday, but it still was not improving so I was starting to think this had nothing to do with his salsa tasting episode.
Took him to this vet whom I have not met before today.
First let me say she is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!! I love her, the staff and how they took care of my boy.
She had me go into a room where there was no exam table. The vet and her helper both sat on the floor cooing over Chance telling him how adorable he was, kisses galore and a couple of treats were given to him.
He was eating all of it up too! (both attention and treats)
I remarked that I have never seen a vet be like that with a dog and she replied with a smile saying, "Well, while he is thinking I am playing with him and giving him all kinds of love, I have been checking out his stomach"
She said to me she was guessing he had worms.
So while she was kissing his face, handing him another little treat, the vet assistant was sticking the tube up his doopah to get a stool sample. I saw absolutely no change in him. The tech could probably have shoved that thing up to the back of his throat and he wouldn't have minded.
10 minutes later the results were in.
Chance has whip and round worm. So she gave me meds for him to take care of it, told me how to get rid of the poop he has done so far and then said she wanted to wait to do the neutering, etc until next week when he is better.
So next Thursday he is getting his rabies, neutering, teeth cleaned, micro chipped and also going to have the genetic testing done to see what his mix really is as well as anything with health.
My vet does obedience classes and will be starting one within the month. She does positive reinforcement with her teaching.
I REALLY like this woman!
