Good News!

The Vet called yesterday and Bailey does not have Lyme disease. Last Friday Bailey started limping and we noticed a sore spot on his side he'd been working on. We called and got a rare last minute Saturday slot to see the Vet and she was concerned he might have contracted Lyme disease and put him on meds after doing some tests. With the holiday there was a delay in getting the labs out and returned. However, we are pleased to know it isn't Lyme.

His limping cleared up quickly, but he still has his rash. She wants to see him if it hasn't cleared up with the meds in 10-14 days. He's very frustrated because he's been forced to wear a t-shirt to keep him from going after his hot spot. He's requested no pictures be taken until he's shirt free.


  1. That is great news. Bailey get better soon and we hope it is not long before you are shirt free. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Bowsers Bailey is sure lucky. We know that Dad would have taken a picture.
