Canine Condition

A quick update on the strange ordeal with Buster the dog.

After switching him from Tetracycline to Doxycycline almost a week ago, he has been much improved. He no longer acts like he doesn't care if he lives or dies. However, in spite of the largish antibiotics dosing, he continues to show intermittent lameness, and not always in the same leg. Other than a bit of difficulty standing up from lying, and keeping his footing on the hardwood floors, he is as obnoxious as ever.

I never thought I would yearn for him to oh, please, just come run off with my sock, and wouldn't you like to get between my legs when I am trying to split wood? His obnoxiosity is such a good sign!

Ask your vet about Canine Wobbler Syndrome. A good doggy friend of mine was recently diagnosed and his symptoms were similar to Busters.

I hope Buster feels better soon.
