BHRR's Emmett was scheduled to have his boosters on Friday September 7th and then be neutered next week BUT, the diarrhea that he has had off and on has not dissipated despite being de-wormed proatively and preventatively upon arrival to BHRR.

So, he came into work with me on Friday – I had three dogs vetted that day plus worked 10 hours just at the Hospital NOT to mention BHRR matters to tend to and I think I was rubber in the brain by the time I got home!

I know per the specialist that he could go from straining to poop to diarrhea due to his past prolapsed rectum and wanted this re-visited. Yet, his wee rump looks good! No temperature either.

So, we have postponed the vaccines and neuter which in turn, postpones when he can be placed up for adoption as we do not adopt out dogs not utd on vaccines NOR unaltered.

I also had the Vet re-listen to his heart and it is FABU! 🙂

In doing a fecal smear, he has the lovely bacterial infection of Campylobacter. Now, all dogs have Campylobacter yet, his is not normal levels. So, he is on metronidazole for the next 14 days.

I shall reschedule his boosters plus neuter once he is at the end of his course of treatment. AND when he is under, I shall remove the two deciduous teethies that he still has(he could still lose them as he is not even 6 months as of yet!).

BHRR is facing HUGE vet bills right now. With BHRR's Emmett, BHRR's Jersey, BHRR's Concert, BHRR's Hailey, BHRR"s Scarlett, BHRR's Blossom and all the annuals due for the FREEDOM DANES and we also have three new additions coming in within the week; if anyone would please consider donating to the BHRR Vet bills to help us; we would be so so so so very appreciative and filled with the absolute bestest of gratitude.
