Day 19

Petey has been eating and playing normally, but I had some concerns today that he felt warm to my touch and his belly felt a bit bloated. While we were at the vet for his injection, he also had a basic exam. His heart and lungs sounded perfect; no swelling of his liver or kidneys, and there was NO fluid in his abdomen. His temp was 100.7 and he’s gained another 4.5 ounces since the beginning of the week (he’s eating voraciously!).  His doctor gave him a clean bill of health and is encouraged by the progress he’s made in such a short time. 

His injection today was 1.1ml of shire in the right shoulder but with his additional weight gain, he will increase to 1.2ml starting tomorrow.
