My foster dog is sick


Machete is sick! He spent six days in boarding at the vet during our vacation last week. While he was there, it was discovered that he had whipworms. He was treated for the worms, but our friend who picked him up from the vet on Saturday reported that Machete seemed dehydrated and stressed.
Shortly after he got back to our house, I noticed that he was coughing intermittently. The coughing has continued, and he just doesn’t seem like his old self. I’m afraid he may have kennel cough. We will find out more later today at the vet, after which I may be taking a cue from Our Waldo Bungie and establishing a way for people to help us take care of Machete’s health needs.


About crystalwayward

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.

  2. Thank you! I am seriously thinking about it…
