Long story short, Bella now has a topical cream to be applied twice daily to her hind end which will hopefully stop what Sam thinks may be a minor infection. And Joe has some antibiotics to help settle his stomach. Sam gave a fancy name that I don't remember but she thinks he has some doggy illness (likely arrived with it) that we'll treat. Ha, and here I thought I needed to change his dog food.
I should know in 7-10 days if both treatments worked. If they don't, we'll monkey with the dog food in case of allergies.
