The Rumpster is sick.
Yesterday morning while we were walking, Rumpy produced a particularly stinky poo.
When I got home for lunch, he’d had an accident in the laundry room. It smelled awful. I switched him to a bland diet, but he continued to have diarrhea today, and this afternoon there was blood in the discharge.
So off to the vet we went.
Rumpy’s ear canal was raw and infected. Dr. Gillespie cleaned out his ear, then put some medicine inside.
Dr. Gillespie shaved the Rumpster’s behind to get the poo off his bottom.
The vet said Rumpy’s gut bacteria are out of whack. So a steroid shot and prescription meds, and he should be back on track in a few days.
I’m not sure what’s the cause of Rumpy’s gastric distress, but the vet wanted to know if he’s eaten any human food. I told him sure, every chance he gets.
But he won’t be eating anymore anytime soon.
