Case 11


Now that Rintu appears stable, a warm bath with liquid dishwashing detergent is indicated to remove the flea product from his coat. Once he is bathed and dried, his temperature is 100.2 F (37.9 C). You place an intravenous catheter and begin maintenance crystalloid fluid therapy so you can keep Rintu hydrated while you monitor his recovery.

Rintu's CBC and serum chemistry profile results show no abnormalities other than a mild neutrophilia, which is likely stress-related.
