Brodie's test came back negative for any tick born illnesses. So good news, but no diagnosis either. I did not dose him with the anti-inflammatory last night or the Gabapentin as I was away from the house and even crated, I would not want to dose him with new stuff and then leave him alone. This morning he is bursting with energy - he hasn't been on a walk since Sunday, his swelling is down but not 100% gone, he's had no exercise so is busting to do something. He is using his paw more, I carried him out to do his business and he is using it but still a slight limp. Good news on no sprain, no Lyme's but also no diagnosis so no reasons behind it to point to. We go back for a recheck next week. He is supposed to be on R & R for at least 2 weeks but out of agility for at least the next 6 (4 weeks left in session then a 2 week break). No walks, no stairs, no jumping (my pogo stick dog....), no frisbee, no play with Deacon or Kooper until doctor approved because they rough house so bad.
