A volunteer writes: So quiet in his kennel all day, each time I passed I thought to myself, here’s a shy scared dog, poor baby. Imagine my surprise when I took Adobo out of his kennel and he changed right before my eyes. He is talkative (doesn’t bark or whine. It’s kind of like a playful grunt–it’s hard to describe), playful dog who greeted the other dog out for a walk with a play bow and some circles, but then wanted to talk to her so he barked at her. ( I guess Adobo was never told that girls don’t like to be barked at, but it was quite cute). Once he quieted down we continued the walk and she and he were happy together. Adobo is handsome, well behaved and sits nicely for treats. If you are looking for a new family member, look no further Adobo is the one for you. Stop by AC&C and meet him.
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Adobo came to our center on 5/10/2015 after a member of the public found him as a stray and attempted to keep him. After a little over a week, finder decided Adobo was too high energy for the family and too strong/rambunctious for the younger children. Adobo lived for the week with an adult and four children, ranging in age from 3 months to 15 years. Adobo pulled hard insdie the building but once outside he walked nicely. Adobo was high energy and hard to position throughout entire assessment. He pulled out three times during attempt at Look item, making it unable to complete this portion of assessment. Adobo jumped up in between each item, making positioning difficult. During Sensitivity, Adobo shoulder rubbed and jumped his body away from assessor. with alot of movement in between Sensitivity passes. Adobo followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, and jumped up on assessor playfully at end of game. Adobo needed time to adjust before Squeeze item, shoulder rubbing and jumping up. Once settled, he placed open mouth on assessor’s hand during both Squeeze attempts, with no pressure and his body leaning away, but did not pull paw back. He had minimal interest in food and rawhide. Adobo placed his body between toy and assessor but remained loose and wiggly. Adobo approached the helper dog with ears forward and tail at spine level. The Behavior Team feels Adobo would do best in an Experienced home with no young children,where he can have daily walks and exercise to positively direct his high energy. He may also benefit from enrichment items such as kongs/nylabones, as well as obedience classes to learn focus and manners regarding jumping. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog is active and focused on the Assessor and all other stimuli available. His body is soft, panting, displays high movement between attempts. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash. Squeeze 1/2: 2. Dog gently places his open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure. Food: 1. Minimal interest in food, dog may smell or lick, then turns away. Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide, dog may smell or lick, then turns away. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip long or neutral.

PUT IN FOR RC WEIGHT AND ADVISE DVM
IF LOST WEIGHT RECOMMEND FULL WORKUP
S/O: Vet check for rechecking weight and further work up if needed. Per ACO, patient has been eating well and intermittently has soft stool
Weight = 43.4 lbs.
Patient is BAR
Integ = erythematous and greasy coat over the left side of the face and at the distal digits on the front paws. Malodorous as well
mm= pink, moist
hydration = slight prolonged skin tent
No nasal/ocular discharge
Abdomen palpates snp – firm but likely compressible mass (patient would not sit still long enough for a good enough palpation) in the caudal dorsal abdomen.
GU = MI
A: Weight loss
Reports of intermittent vomiting and soft stool – r/o GI vs. extra GI
Malodorous greasy coat – r/o yeast vs. bacteria secondary to allergies
CBC/Chemistry performed and showed the following abnormalities:
leukocytosis (18.10 K/uL) Reference: 5.05-16.76
monocytosis (1.88 K/uL) Reference: 0.16 – 1.12
Lipase 176 U/L Reference: 200-1800
2 view abdominal radiographs showed a large amount of ingesta in the intestinal tract. At the caudal most aspect, there appears to be gas in the large intestine and distal to that, there appears to be feces surrounding an oblong opacity. If there is a FB, it should pass given that it is in the large intestines. Given the history of vomiting/diarrhea and weight loss, it is poss. to have a primary GI disease – IBD vs. food hypersensitivity vs. FB vs. intussusception vs. enteritis vs. other.
Recommend New Hope placement for abdominal ultrasound +/- food trial for poss. food allergies.
