Star Meets Our New Veterinarian!

Hi everyone,

On August 19, 2016 I found a new vet due to personal preference to our old one. Plus, Star had very bad diarrhea with blood in it. The vet diagnosed a bacterial overgrowth in her intestines.  She had a annual physical exam, a 4 way fecal test, fecal testing, antibiotic for 10 days to kill the bacterial overgrowth, and a probiotic for 10 days to keep the good bacteria in. The good news is that Star's medicine is kicking in and the diarrhea is almost completely gone....the bad news is that my wallet is broken. But at least she is okay. ;)

Star loved and I mean LOVED the vet tech. She tried to follow her out the door to check the results on her fecal test.  Star was an absolute angel at the vet, she did not growl, hiss, scratch, or bite and Star has a reputation for an aggressive attitude. Not this time.
This was simply unheard of.
Good Starry Bear Bear!
