Pets teach love

Last week Bentley was running a fever of 104.7°, equivalent to about 102° in a human being. On medication for about a week for an infection caused by what we think was a tick-related hot spot, he refused to eat or interact. So off to the vet we went for the third time in 10 days. Blood tests and an examination proved negative and the vet thought he might be having a reaction to the antibiotic. So he gave him an injection of antihistamine and steroid to bring the fever down and by the evening Bentley was eating rice and beef though still lethargic. By Friday he was himself again with no fever.

Bentley is a 10-year-old golden retriever.
