The vet only found that the one rear leg had a swollen node, but no obvious reason why. Not bites, or scratches. They didn't seem to think the tick has much to do with it. Gave him fluids, pain meds, and antibiotics and we are to see if he improves in the next couple of days.
He was more himself coming home. He wanted to eat. Not sure how long the pai...
I keep hearing conflicting info about the baby aspirin (1/4th of one ). Some people here suggest never to do it. Elsewhere people say that it is done all of the time. So it's confusing.
I took his temperature, and unfortunately it's 104.8. It's a fever for sure, caused by what kind of infection I don't know. I sort of suspected tooth, b...

We are located in the US.
We took him in and the doctor said that part of the bottom jaw is gone. There is a little bit of it there but it's been mangled, he will have to give him an anesthetic and do a closer examination to see if it even can be fixed at all. Said possibly a coyote or maybe hit by a vehicle. He will let us know shortly if anything ca...
