|A2122661||Monday, 01 February, 2021||Rocky is a very sweet and friendly dog, even while suffering from multiple health concerns. He cries, barks and whines constantly in his run. He has a strong desire for attention and will cry as loud as he can if you walk past him. He has some difficulty walking on the leash. He walks slowly but is terrified of everything and keeps his tail tucked. He currently has a cone around his neck which may contribute to his fearfulness and dissorientation. Out in the yard, he will happily run over to you to be pet and shows affection.||Monday, 01 February, 2021 1:10PM||Behavior|

|A2122661||Sunday, 28 February, 2021||Per foster: Sneezing and Coughing for a week. Nasal d/c-yellow color, no sign of watery eyes. Behavior-BAR. Does bark/growl due to being threaten by strangers and not the foster family. Had Rocky for a week and Rocky has been learning very slowly to trust and also learning about discipline by the fosters.
Had to change the food; became a picky eater, but appetite good. Bowl movements normal. Vomits sometimes at the end of the day as per foster; possible gets into something. Taking medication: Clavamox 375mg and 250mg (each tab BID), Omeprazole (SID), apoquel (BID). Hairloss rear area- hair is growing back but slowly. Has not given a bath yet!
G000517- took a look at the pet.
as per vet:
Send home- Doxycycline 150mg tab- Give 1 2/3 tablet PO SID x 10 days. qty: 17 tablets.
Interceptor (25-50lb) + (2-6lb.) and Nexgard (24-60lb.)- Give all the prevention tomorrow (due date). qty: 3 tablets total (one of each prevention due to size)
Medicated Shampoo- apply and lather 5-10 minutes and rinse it well, air dry only (no towel use). Use as needed. qty: 3 bottles.
(in spanish) Advised foster how to give medication to Rocky (spits out the apoquel) to give with cheese, wet food (into a meatball), or peanut butter. Also, how to work on Rocky's behavior when disciplining him and rewarding with a treat when he is obedient and being a good boy. I did tell foster it will take time to train him and have him learn about what is right and wrong and to be patient with Rocky due to his traumatic past.
Foster family was very understanding and understood what to work on Rocky until next visit. Also, monitor Rocky of not eating stuff that he should not eat that would make Rocky vomit.||Friday, 05 March, 2021 10:21AM||Medical|
|A2122661||Sunday, 21 March, 2021||Foster states that Rocky is doing well. He still is coughing and has mild nasal discharge at times but doing better as per foster. The last Doxycycline pill was finished about 1 week ago. Foster is now able to trick him into eating his Apoquel (Refill needed).
Doxycycline 150 mg: 1 2/3 tabs PO SID until finished #10ct.
Apoquel 16 mg: 1 tab PO SID #25.
Interceptor 50 - 100 lbs: Instructed to give orally on 03/28/21 #1ct.
