We've had a sick little Aussie girl in our home today. Mykelti gave me a bit of a scare earlier in the day when she became violently ill, so I rushed her over to the vet. They checked her out and made sure there was no blockage or other issues going on, and then eventually gave us the "ok" to head back home, thankfully. She'll be taking some medicine for a few weeks, and then should be back to her normal, energetic self soon. They think she has a severe bacterial infection, based on the samples they tested. (We aren't sure what caused it.) In the mean time, she's enjoying the extra TLC including fresh baked chicken & rice, and Gatorade to keep her hydrated.
She was a good girl at the vets office. She smiles all the time, even when she doesn't feel well.
"Wait a minute! This is the vet's office, not the pet store. Lies!!"
Back home, all snuggled in and feeling better.
For anyone wondering, Mykelti is a Standard Australian Shepherd, 3 years old, and weights 45lbs. She is a Blue Merle with tan and white points, and Heterochromia. (Her eyes are different colors.)
