All summer the temperature in our city was over 100 degrees. As you can tell in the photo, Max was beautiful. He had a thick coat of fur. Max was panting a lot. I decided to take him to Petco to be shaved for the summer so the heat wouldn't bother him so much.
When I picked him up from Petco, I noticed a small bump on his back leg. The groomers told me to take Max to our vet. Maybe he had gotten into our roses bushes or stung by a bee. The next day I took him to our vet.
