    I posted a few days ago my dog couldn’t stop itching and had a few sores I’ve attached one on his ear. Then he was sick once like yellow Bile and was acting really lethargic and licking his lips a lot and gulping and off food he didn’t touch his biscuits at all . Normal stools and drinking fine.

    Took him to the vets today and he has a slightly raised temp so had an anti sickness injection and antibiotic injection and we took him a course of antibiotics to start tomorrow, penicillin .they said to bring him back tomorrow night if no improvement

    Since getting home seems slightly brighter, had some chicken and some of his biscuits he randomly started eating out of choice which he didn’t have any intrest in yesterday . Constantly lip licking has decreased. Still feels quite warm.

    Has anyone had anything similar to this. The vet doesn’t know the reason at the moment could be related to the bites on his skin or could be unrelated but didn’t seem overly worried at the moment.
    He says tomorrow night to make a decision if we are going to do bloods and keep him in for the night if there isn’t an improvement on these antibiotics. At the moment I don’t see a huge improvement but a small one still seems quite tired and fed up but he only had the injection 10 hrs ago and hasn’t started the full antibiotic course yet..
