Thanks for asking, Laura.
Toby is doing fine. Late last month, he tore of one of his toe nails again, same toe nail, third time. He was on antibiotics again, a bandage, but recovered really nicely. He is my clumsy boy, lol.
No signs or symptoms of Ehrlichia present, yay!
Coincidently, my dachshund Dachsi tested positive for Ehrlichia last month, no symptoms, and was also put on 21 days of doxycycline. Tick borne diseases are definitely on the rise.
Toby is doing really good considering his arthritis issues. I bought a magnetic collar from him, believe me I was a skeptic, but I am pleasantly surprised. It really does seem to help him. He is starting to run and play more, not limping much at all. I hope the trend continues. I have been able to cut back on pain killers, yay
Of course, I should not say all this too loud, and boom .... somethingelse happens.....
Thunder got a magnetic collar also, he is slowing down but doing good.
Both boys are due for their geriatric profile next month.
Thank you again for asking.
