Hi Jeff!

Thank you for your question!

Looking at the pictures that you submitted and based on the symptoms of the animal, it is best to have a veterinarian look at the animal right away. Unfortunately, without seeing the animal in person I can not give any other advice. The veterinarian should also be able to help with the testing you are looking for.

There are several vets in the area that could help. Here are links to a couple that I found close to Eagle Point.
