He was licking his (formerly) bad paw a lot today. I thought maybe the spring snow we had last night had irritated it so I took a close look. There's still a stich in there!!! No wonder he was licking it. Called the vet--"yes, it's supposed to come out, sorry we missed it, blah blah blah. Come in this afternoon (right at rush hour of course) and we'll take it out." Grrrr. Phone rings again 5 minutes later--"oh and by the way, the fecal we tested last week for Fitzgerald's annual exam came back positive for giardia." He hasn't been exhibiting any signs so he's probably just a carrier but FOR PETE'S SAKE MAN!!!
