    DefaultUpdate on Spike

    Spike seems to be doing ok. No new blood test yet but I'll keep you posted. Had an interesting awakening the other day. Had put Advantix on him and besides finding 2 ticks on him just noticed he was itchy (noticed this previously too but just shrugged it off) and he was droopy. I watched alittle more closely and it just wasn't "right" so after a couple of days I brought him to the groomer and had them wash him in Dawn. He came home happy, bright eyed and ran laps in the yard. For now he's off a preventative for another 3 weeks until we try something new. Got the yard treated and since it's a large yard he will be ok without walks. I'll be anxious to see how his next blood test comes back. The vet kept saying that she thought a toxin was involved but we couldn't pinpoint it. I wonder...
