They had to get rid of him because the wife was throwing a fit about him pottying on their new carpet. Guh. I hate people. Anyway, so the guy gives me Charlie, his food, bowls, and a bag full of shampoos and pills and sprays and tells me he's on pills for a parasite, needs to be dewormed via the other pill, and that he has ringworm and needs daily sprays and weekly baths. But he said that he wasn't contagious... :O I was shocked, since ringworm is so contagious, so I called the vet. Receptionist tells me that he's still highly contagious and to pick up his poop, put lyme over the spot. I was so confused by this point. I called the director and told her everything I knew, so she called the fosters and the vet back. We got it all straightened out.
Apparently Charlie had ringworm, and is still recovering from that, but it should not be too contagious any more. We're still limiting his contact with Frag to be on the safe side. He also had roundworms, but those have been taken care of for the most part, I have another de-worming pill to give him today. He also has coccidia, a nasty parasite, and that is what the pills and lyme is for... "/ So, we have to go out and buy lyme, and be very careful about cleaning up his poop. Yaaaay.
Other than all of his issues, he's a good dog. Fairly quiet, decent eater, walks OKAY on leash, and comes to his name most of the time. I'm excited to see how long he's hear and how he does with us.
