Tuesday, Day 12

We went to our 3rd vet appointment today. The vet tech and I are starting to believe that the puppies may have some Pembroke Welsh Corgi in them - especially Chance. When he is laying down and his ears are flipped up, he really looks like a Corgi.

When we met with the vet, he seemed shocked as to how well they are doing. They had both gained a little bit of weight and did not have a fever. They both still have a bit of a cough, but other than that they seem good. He prescribed another round of the 3 medicines, but expects them to be well at the end of the week.

He said that they can come out of quarantine as soon as they stop coughing. He said that there is probably only a 20% chance that they will develop the more serious neurological signs of distemper. They should be ready for their regular vaccinations next week.

The following video is of the puppies playing after we gave them a bath. There is no sound. They can get kind of wild at times. Who would have known that they were so ill last week. This video looks a little scary, but I promise they are not always this wild and that they are just playing (you can tell because they are wagging their tails the whole time).

A couple of people have told us that they look bigger in the photos than in real life. Just to give you a reference point, she is about the size of a full grown cat and weighs only 9 pounds. He is slightly larger.
