Our poor dog...

We have an older dog named Fletcher. He's about 9 and lives with LaVaughn's mom (my aunt). He's lived with her for the past 7 years now. The reason for that is, when we moved back in '03, the landlord said we couldn't have animals because the would mess up the yard, bla, bla, bla... Well anyway, she calls us up Saturday and says he's sick and she thinks he might have Distemper. So we went over to her house and looked at him. He didn't look very good at all. He kept walking around coughing and just acted like he didn't feel good. But at the time, none of the animal hospitals were open. So we looked up some stuff on Distemper. So to us it didn't sound like that at all. When we told her that, she felt a little better. He seemed ok for the rest of the evening and night, but then Sunday she called and told us that he wasn't doing any better. So we offered to take him to the vet for her. Well bright and early Monday morning we called the Fredericktown animal hospital and got him in around 8:20. Well I'm not gonna go into complete details of what the vet said, other than it was all good news. He confirmed that he does not have Distemper or Heartworms, yay! And while we were there we got all of his shots. The vet also gave him and antibiotic and a cough pill. So hopefully he gets better really soon or we'll have to take him back to the vet, lol. - Megan
