Update on Janis! (new spelling of Janis's name)
I am pleased to inform you that Janis came into Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic yesterday for an exam and update on her condition. Dr. Marc Schmidt, owner and Veterinarian, examined Janis. Because Janis had so many ticks embedded in her, we drew some blood to send out a panel to check her for Tick Fever.
Tick Fever is a disease that is transmitted by ticks through tick bites. Janis is at high risk for contracting this disease due to the number of ticks she had. Other than the ticks and recovering from all of the pulling off of the ticks and sheer exhaustion, she looks great and passed her exam with flying colors!
Sheila also chose to have Janis receive her first puppy vaccine! Janis is eating hardily and beginning to act and play like a puppy should! I will continue to update you on her condition. Once our blood test results are in I will let you know. Her treatment and recovery back to health continues! Thank you Dr. Schmidt for caring for Janis and thank you again to Sheila and Phil from Reservation Rewards for caring and rescuing for all of these beautiful babies! You can see Sheila's profile and go to her website on the left hand side of this website, in our "Members" corner. To bring your own pet into Dr. Schmidt, you can call for an appointment at:480-987-4555. His profile is down below, near the bottom of this page.
