About Bubba…..

I still don’t know what’s wrong with Bubba.

Having sweet dreams

Having sweet dreams

The vet did blood work and a urine screen. The only unusual marker in the blood was one type of white blood cell count was high. The vet said that could be a sign of parasites. But since Bubba was recently treated with Revolution and had been wormed recently, she didn’t like that possibility. The urine showed proteins and white blood cells. And he had lost a half pound in two weeks.

So for now he’s in a dog kennel in the back room shut off from the rest. He has a special high-calorie food to eat to try to get some weight on him. He has a Feliway plug-in and Rescue Remedy in his water.

Bubba and DeDe are best friends

As for Jen, she needs a day to rest. I’m letting her have that.

Please don’t forget to vote for me in the World Spay Day Pet Pageant! I am in 7th place and could take 6th by the end of the day with your help.

And please say a prayer for Bubba.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  3. Oh gosh – we were hoping the vet could figure out the mystery of what’s wrong with Bubba…..maybe the rest and new food will work. We sure will keep our prayers going – there’s just got to be something else going on with him. 😦

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  10. Poor Bubba, it is bad enough to not feel right but then to have to be away from others because you might have something others could catch is sad. Hope it gets figured out soon and he gets on the road to recovery!

    Posted by Emmadog | March 2, 2013, 6:54 AM
    • You’re right. Jen doesn’t like him being separated like that, but she’s tried other remedies while he’s with the rest and they aren’t working. She’ll let DeDe go and visit him of course.

  54. In situations like that, I like a second pair of eyes to look at things. I’d recommend uploading the lab results to http://www.vetlive.com they might have further insights or come up with new questions. I’ve used them in the past, trust me, it’s well worth it.

    Meanwhile, hugs for Bubba.
