    Yesterday

    Good morning all:bighug: Elmo ate well over night and again this AM. He came down to 172 before bed so makes me wonder where he surfed last night... Dr Rusty comes this afternoon and I’m thrilled to be getting a local source for antibiotics to pulse for Elmo’s gums and treat for any flare ups. Such a blessing to have a vet that listens , trusts owner judgement and willing to come here, even tho Elmo is not a cow :joyful: Blessings and prayers offered to any person or kitty who needs them ❤️

    Good morning Beth! Wow! Elmo might have gone for a little dip in the lagoon! He sure looks beautiful sitting on the beach this morning!
    So nice of your vet to come over and doesn't discriminate between cows and Elmo! :joyful: Don't forget to tell him we think he's a GREAT VET! :kiss:
    Have a wonderful day! :bighug:

    Thanks, Carla :bighug: Praying the exam is brief ( think he’s on his way to a farm call ) and Elmo is calm . Just a relief to have source for antibiotics for his gums.

Got call from vet office asking what I wanted him to do and what to bring :) His office manager has become a good friend over the years...I believe she’s the neck that turns the head:)

    Hearing about your vet kind of reminds me of James Herriot from the All Creatures Great and Small series. Loved watching that program so much! You and Elmo are so lucky to have such a great vet!

    I'm glad Elmo's vettie home visit went well. Isn't it wonderful to have a vet that see's him/herself as a partner and listens to the owner? I hope the antibiotics help with Elmo's dental issues and that he's back to his old self soon.

    El-moo is all set. Hopefully, the antibygotics will help get those numbers down.
