Ok darn it! I typed this long report on how Jake did at the vet and when I submitted it, thd darn thing disappeared and didn't post!
Well, the news isn't really good for Jake. He is worse then he was Friday and Saturday. His temperature is higher (105.5) and with the antibiotic and anti inflamatory, the vet said it should be down to around 100-101 by now. She said his paws are slightly better but not what she expects. His eye and ear are worse. The sore area around the eye has gotten bigger and spread to the folds on and around his nose and over to the inner corner of the other eye. He's losing fur all over and looks terrible. Poor boy.
The vet gave me an additional antibiotic to give him with his other one twice a day. I have to continue to give him the anti inflamatory and cleaning his boo boo's twice a day. She also said it may help to give him a tepid bath and that may bring his temp down a little or at least make him a little more comfortable.
She also took a small tissue sample from his toes to culture. I'm taking it to the lab I work at tomorrow. We have an animal pathology lab that will run the culture for me for free. That helps cuz the cultures are expensive. She collected the sample for free to help me and Jake out. I have to call her Monday to let her know how he's doing. What a mess poor Jakey boy has gotten himself into. I feel so bad for him and so helpless.
