Dr.Friz called this morning with the lab's test reults, and the GSD known as "Zeus" is said to be negative for Leishmaniasis
We are taking him in tomorrow for some more blood work, he will be tested for Ehrlichiosis seeing as he was found with alot of large ticks on him, and if that test comes back positive it is still treatable
.... Seeing as Dr.Friz is going to be taking some more blood from him she is going to send off another test for Leishmaniasis as it can't hurt to have a 2nd lab opinion. Although the initial lab that did the test is one of the best around, and she told us in her medical opinion she believes he is fine and that as far as the Leishmaniasis we have nothing to worry about. So now he is beginning his introduction's to the herd. Dante (our malamute) is now out on the back patio with him, and they are doing pretty well, we figured if Dante would except "Zeus" then he might stand up for him if one of the other's chooses not to like him. At first it was sad, Dante walked out with Darren and "Zeus" looked up an started to shake and piddled, poor boy has not been treated well IMO.
We spent a little more one on one time with "Zeus" last night and feel that it's not who the Florida vet thinks it is, he hardly responds to his name at all, once in awhile he perks up, but that could be because he knows the name and it's familiar to him, but it may not necessarily be his. So we may just be changing that as well
Okay just wanted to update you all on the test results
Have A Good One!!!!
