    Marie, Iím afraid the PCR test wonít have a fast turn around time. That is a very specialized test and will likely have to be forwarded to a reference laboratory. I wonder if a swab of the mouth would yield any more WBCís. Not definitive, but lymphocytes are associated with viral infection while neutrophils (PMN) are associated with bacterial infection.

    A CBC with differential (Complete Blood Count) might be helpful. A break down of the WBCís might be a clue. In addition to getting a count of lymphocytes and neutrophils you would also get a count of eosinophils. High Eosinophil counts are associated with allergic reactions or parasites.

    Long day; and yes no luck with labs here locally. I have a number for a referral lab the DVM in MD uses . They were closed today , but Iíll check first thing in am . Dr. Emerson was also unavailable today, but they said I could try tomorrow. Iím basically just accepting all I can do is treat what can be treated ( with antibiotics) and hope for the best with what canít be fixed ( viral ) . Just going to keep her clean, nourished , and loved and hope for best . Thank you for all the suggestions; will
    stay in touch , off next few days thankfully !

    Glad Doodles is feeling better! Did you ever figure out what was going? You treated with AB and pain meds?

    We are very relieved , and yes just followed the antibiotic guidelines and just a few doses of Meloxicam in the very beginning. I also followed as many of the Pox treatments as I could, that came from here and also from a perfectly timed gift ( that amazing Wild Baby Mammals book!!) I never was able to acquire all the ingredients to make the nut paste
    that was in the link , but I did follow the lesion cleaning and isolation suggestions from that amazing pox thread. None of the others ever caught it Not even 100% sure thatís what it was (?) but sure was suspiciously similar to some of the pics I saw. Maybe just wasnít the full blown deal ,
    Just glad sheís well!

    Marie I really really don't think that was Pox. But either way I'm thrilled she's back to her beautiful little self. And please know the ingredients are only meant to boost the immune system so whether it was or wasn't pox nothing was going to hurt her.

    When I have a wild that struggling I feed them the "pox nut balls" just to boost them. Once they eat them around is astounding.

    Soooo happy to see this!

    My sweet Scooter, my darling Hami... YOU brought that magic in my life. You've changed the way I see all things around me now and, because of you, I want to be a better person. This is not goodbye, my sweethearts. You be at peace, your work here on earth is done now and you can enjoy your freedom. We'll meet at the Bridge again some day... and I will always love you.
