Scooter update
Scooter was much better this morning, and the diarrhea is less intense than it was. Wrenn and I took him to the vet anyhow, and the vet was encouraged by everything he (and we) saw: no fever, his weight's good, no obvious masses or anything, and his behavior is good. They prescribed antibiotics and probiotics, and we're keeping him on boiled chicken and rice for a few more days. They have to test the stool sample to be sure, and we'll keep an eye on him.


And, of course, on the walk there and back Scooter was prancing about and sniffing things and watching people and basically acting exactly like himself.

I love that dog.

Thanks to Dr. Karen for all the advice, and to Jenn for putting up with hosts who are distracted. The latter is about to be rewarded for her patience by a trip to the Bronx Zoo......

So glad to hear he's doing better! Maybe he had the same stomach flu everyone else seems to have had.
