Earlier this week, 10 month old Winston underwent his full intake vetting so we could learn more about him and his health. We found him to be congenitally sound at this time with clear eyes, knees, hips, and heart. The rest of his physical exam checked out normal except for an enlarged lymph node. His bloodwork results just came in and his white blood cell count and neutrophils are elevated which along with the enlarged lymph node supports the idea that he is fighting some sort of virus or infection. Therefore, we have started him on a broad spectrum antibiotic and then will be rechecking his CBC to ensure it has normalized. The rest of his labwork including his fecal test, heartworm and tick borne illness test, and urinalysis were all normal and negative.
We do not have a vaccination history on Winston, and because it’s likely he received his “puppy vaccinations”, we opted to titer test instead of vaccinating to check his protection levels instead of putting him at risk of overvaccination. We just got those results in and he is indeed already protected against distemper and parvo so no additional vaccines needed ✔️
Once Winston finishes his antibiotics and receives a normal CBC, he will then undergo his neuter surgery. Until then, he’s pulling typical puppy antics in his foster home in Berkeley Lake, Georgia 💜
