Gus Update

Many of woo have been asking about Gus. We figured it was time for an update! He still has scar tissue on his nose and around his mouth, but for the most part they are scabbed over. The hole on the inside of his mouth is completely closed, which is good. He's been on antibiotics to make sure there wasn't any infection, and it hasn't been swollen since the day after the attack.


On Friday, I took both boys to the park next to our house, and he and Waldo were playing with the frisbee and he opened the biggest spot on his lip (far left in the pic) so it started bleeding again. So, on Saturday I took Waldo by himself to the Dogfest. Pics of that to come soon!

Edited to add: I came home to find 3 large piles of Gus puke. :( Poor boy isn't feeling as good as I thought. We'll probably fast him tonight, then reintroduce food with some chicken and rice. Not sure what is causing the puking.

Lots of times the medication can cause the tummy to upset...not when initially administered but after a period of time. If you think of it, give a little plain yogurt with the meds. Soothes the tummy and also replaces the good bacteria that the biotics totally kill.

Poor Gus, I am sending good healing vibes his way =)

THose are some mean looking scars there Gus. Sorry about that whole puke thing. CHicken and rice should fix you right up.
