I am sorry to hear you are worried about Champ. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Since I can't see and examine him, some additional information would help. Can you get copies of the blood tests that were done, so I can see what was (and was not) tested for?
I see he is limping; was the leg he is limping on Xrayed?
Does he go outside?
Is he taking any medication besides the antibiotics?
Hope to hear from you soon. Rebecca

Yes, I am here.
I did not see you mention a stroke in your first post; when did that happen? How is he treated for it? Do you know what caused the stroke, like high blood pressure?
