Murphy had his physical exam today with Dr. Kate Washabaugh from A Breed Apart. As it would so happen, he developed diarrhea this morning as well (3 bouts since 4 a.m.). (This is the first time since he has been with us that he has had any bowel issues.)
He had the physical exam and was tested for heartworms. However, since he had diarrhea and his temperature was elevated, it was decided that we will hold off on his vaccinations. Once his stools are normal, I am to bring in a sample and they will check to make sure he has no other intestinal issues. If the test is negative, then we will schedule his vaccinations.
His weight was 52.1 today. We received medication for his diarrhea and one can of "digestive care" dog food that we are to use today and tomorrow morning as a meal replacement.
