Well, Veronika was not long getting back to us with the result of Hari’s snot swab. It wasn’t strangles (hooray) but another strep infection which is a bit messy, but shouldn’t make her too ill. I am very pleased about this. I have not been allowed to meet her yet, but I think we shall be friends.
She does have to be isolated from all of us for the next 28 days (!), but, the lucky girl, she happens to be with her Mum in a field miles from any of us anyway! So she gets to stay there, eating the grass and enjoying the autumn sunshine until Veronika (my vet) says she is not infectious any more.
