    Default Not what I expected!

    So we had to take Tubs to the vet today. We have been getting him weighed every month to make sure he gets the correct dosage of his heart worm meds. When I called to see if I could bring him in today I asked them if I could get his nails cut while we were there. He is getting too big and I can't do it myself anymore. When I got home from work to get him I noticed he was limping and yesterday when we went for a little walk I noticed a small patch on his back that looked like a rash. Instead of just a weigh in it ended up being a full vet visit.

    Apparently my husband was playing a little too rough with him outside, thus the limp.
    He doesn't have a small rash patch on his back, but rather a rash that goes all the way up his back to the top of his head.

    He ended up getting a steroid shot incase the rash was the result of allergies and we were told to keep him a couch potatoe for the next couple of days to rest his paw that he was limping on.

    He did well with getting his nails done and weighed in at 47 lbs (5 1/2 months old).

    He has been doing well since we have been home, walking a little slower and sleeping, but he is ok.

    The only thing I can't figure out is what is up with his farts! They have been horrible today and one right after the other! They were so out of control that the vet even commented on them!

    Hopefully our baby boy is feeling better tomorrow! And smells a little bit....I mean A LOT better!

    Everyone is usually good with him, but when they get our of hand I have to remind them that he is still a baby! We came back in the house saying "Daddy it's all your fault, the vet said so!"

    I think he has an upset tummy too....his stool after dinner was soft. I did switch him to AvoDerm this week, but I weaned him off of the other and on to AvoDerm this week. Today was the first day he was on the AvoDerm 100%. I don't know if it has something to do with that or not. He was fine up until now. HMMMMMM

    It could be from the switch along with the stress of the leg getting hurt. The gas will pass! (no pun intended!)

    I hope he feels better tomorrow xxoo

    That makes 3 of us Dave likes to get Samson all excited about playing fetch and he will having jumping on and off our bed! Not good for bully hips/joints in general but particuraly worsesome for me because Samson broke his front leg when he was a baby! I am afraid of it getting injured again!

    I hope Tubs starts feeling better soon! Poor baby!
