I brought him to the vet this morning and I must say he was more comfortable with not eating than any dog I have ever had. Must be because he was used to not getting fed and he just accepted it as normal.
He was happy just to be riding in the SUV.
They called me at noon and said he was heartworm negative but had round worms, hookworms and whipworms. No wonder he was skinny as a rail!
When I got there pick him up he was so ecstatic to see me, I guess he figures I was gone forever after I dropped him off. But being a typical Basset, he made the best of it making friends with everyone by giving them all that sad eyed look he does so well.
And now he is a neutered and microchipped stud muffin with gorgeous eyes!!!
