Worry about Bo

Dad has just arrived at the hospital in Windsor with Bo. The vet sent them there. Bo has apparently a lot of abdominal fluid and a very high white blood cell count.

He's been coughing a lot. About four weeks ago I insisted that Dad make an appointment with the vet. The vet said it was kennel cough, although Bo really hadn't been near any dogs. His only exposure to dogs had been on the first Saturday of hunting season which is the third Saturday in October. By mid-November he was in bad shape.

So, the vet gave us antibiotics. Two weeks later, Dad took him back and the vet gave us an antinflammatory to ease the coughing.

The coughing is now still just as constant, but it is down to a rough mostly-silent wheeze. He's now shaking and barely has the energy to go outside. He's been having accidents in the house and he's not the type of dog who does that ever. So, yesterday Dad called and demanded an appointment today.
