The doctor will see you now

Posted by laurie on July 13, 2010

Have you ever seen a beagle lay down and relax in the waiting room at the vet’s office? Me neither! But that’s what Sherm did, after about fifteen minutes of sniffing around and saying hello to everyone. (And lifting his leg to pee! What a shock, Sherman has never marked!) We were there for his regular checkup and all was fine except he tested positive for anaplasmosis and ehrlichia, two tick-borne infections. It could just be that he had these in the past and now has antibodies, so they’re doing more expensive tests to determine if he needs to take antibiotics. He screeched when the vet trimmed his dew claw but other than that he was a perfect patient. Go, Sherm!
