Baby Bear is responding well with the new meds added to his day. He is more alert and back to eating normal. He does have a clot in his lung not bacteria, so the vet is talking with a specialist on how to proceed with his treatment. We can’t treat the clot due to his other health issues. We may have to start his heartworm treatment before the pneumonia is fully cleared as well.
We have discussed moving forward with his heartworm treatment. If he does need to start it now the vet feels he would do better being admitted into an ER where he can be observed for any complications and treated immediately if he has any. Between the clot and the pneumonia being in an ER is probably safer than coming home and being observed. We will find out more when the heartworm specialist shares her input.
For now we are enjoying his spunk and loving his tail wags & kisses. In a little while he will go out and spend a few hours on the back deck since it’s such a pretty day!
