Mom Kim here - I was really hoping that I could tell you all that Lord Shiloh's ringworm was just about all cleared up....................
HOWEVER - that would be a lie. If anything it may have rallied itself (the ringworm) and has now spread further - it is now on the inside of his back legs, around his tail and there are small lesions on the outside of his backlegs and also all over his tummy. I still have not heard back from the vet we usually have gone to - in fact when I called him to ask about the test results, he reminded me that he would call me when they came in.
At least me and Lady Shasta are still showing NO lesions.
There is something else I'm not sure I have mentioned before. Lord Shiloh also has a movable lump under his chin - sort of where his head joins his neck. He still eats altho not with his usual Beagle gusto - he is drinking good and pottying good. Last time we were at this same vet - the vet looked at it, moved it around but said he would biopsy that later because he didn't have time right then.
I have been a bit dissatisfied for some time with this vet (I know I have posted about it before). Oh, and after that initial 10-day course of antibiotics was done, I mentioned continuing them or some anti-fungal - this was a no go since the vet said not needed.
What now? We have an appointment with a different vet this afternoon. I have already been told that he will want to do a full exam and likely a skin culture. I also mentioned that lump and it will likely get checked out too. I will try to do an update later today.
Please keep my little man in your thoughts and prayers and send some POTP.
