So we just took him out. It looks like the vet cleaned him pretty thoroughly so we were just going to give him a mealie with the medicine and play with him a bit, but he started doing the weird thing he was doing the other night and now it's getting a bit concerning. I should probably post a separate thread on this, but I'm worried that this is all horribly related.

The other night he suddenly stopped playing then sat in the same spot for like five minutes smelling frantically, and then the next time I picked him up he bit me really hard (and broke skin). Tonight (after a really awkward mishap where after he unballed and he started trying to burrow directly inbetween my legs while licking and biting at my thigh) he just sat still on the fleece smelling moving his nose like crazy for like five minutes and baring his teeth. We we really afraid he was going to bite me again because this was the same sort of behavior as before so we put him back.

It's especially weird because he's only done this the past two nights =[

I can't help but wonder if they injected him with Ivermectin.
I'm sorry I should have clarified. He was sedated to take a skin scraping and quill sample. He was also applied with Revolution while I was in the room, later.

Also as best we could see there was no rash on his stomach and his ears looked crusty not scabby.
