Monday..phooey

Hi evfurry..well it’s Monday that means i am off to the vets AGAIN tomorrow..

It was my birthday on Saturday..i turned 13..did i get a cake…NO..

Did Granny do a blog…NO..

Did i have fun..well sort of..

I have not been well..here’s the thing Granny and Grandad have been trying so hard with the vets to find out why i am itching all the time..

I had mange shots..it did not go away..so i do not have mange..

I have had my diet changed to fresh meat and my special muesli mix and Granny has even been picking fresh Kale and drying it slowly in the oven then crushing it up in her hands..looks like something she could be arrested for having BOL..and she sprinkles that on my and Forrests meals..still itching..

She has put apple cider vinegar in my water..still itching..and i mean all the time!

I am getting red and so very tired because i am not sleeping properly..so last visit i saw Dr Bruce he gave me a full blood test and a peemail test..

I had some white blood cells in my wee and my bloods so i am on antibiotics..for a wee infection ..plus i am on a herbal version of steroids for two months with TURMERIC in it..

Plus a probiotic in my food..

So i am also off my food every now and then..Grandad has been bathing me in a very dilute mix of the apple cider vinegar/water and green tea..nup still itching..

My bloods apart from the white cell count were perfect..not only for my age but any aged pooch..so we go tomorrow again and try and see what we can do..this has been going on for a month now and i am tired of it ..

So i got no food treats for my special day..nada..zip..zero..

Granny is getting really down about it..see i am her heart boy..and she hates to see me so unhappy..the heat and humidity does not help either..and we have a lot of things going on here too so she is behind in all things blog…

So please can you send some POTP for me as i really miss being myself..Granny and Grandad did buy me a new toy for my birthday and for awhile i forgot i was itchy and just flew like i always do.

I may be a senior and classed as GERIATRIC..how RUDE…but i got the moves like Jagger..

I got the moves like Jagger and can bend it like Beckham still BOL

  1. Doc, I’m so sad this itching will not go away and it was even there as you celebrated your barkday…I hope so much that your vet can solve that mystery and he will find the reason and a perfect treatment…I was allergic on special grass in spring, maybe there is some weed in your area what’s brandnew this year?

  2. oh you poor baby!!! We feel so bad for you 😦 Happy Belated Birthday though anyway. Did the Vet say anything about it possibly being an allergy that is “environmental”? That is what Cody has. He gets those “hot spots” that were previously thought to be related to food, now the Vet thinks for sure they are due to an environmental irritant………….probably my Mom……..BOL BOL BOL!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    1. Dakota thankyou and Happy Birthday to you too ! 🙂 Granny is going to speak about doing an allergy test..nothing has changed here outside..and inside Granny uses all non toxic non animal tested cleaning stuffs even for washing our bedding the same as always..so she will ask again tomorrow about what can be done..she wonders if now i am scratching because it is irritated from scratching..so going in circles..i may be allergic to her too BOL ..paw pats Doc xx

    1. Miss Ellen thankyou…the vet is pretty sure the kibble was the issue..although we have never changed it the vet said companies tweek the recipe sometimes and it triggers problems..granny went nuts..she uses the same cleaning stuff always..eco friendly vegan even..no animal testing etc…our bedding is not that new and also regularly washed and dried in the dryer with no other stuff..no new perfume or aftershave even bol….nothing new in the garden..so the vet said a lot of allergy starts in the gut..so the new diet which i love is working and the herbal supplements too..the antibiotics kicked the peemail infection and i got a spray for my itchy parts..its not cortisone as the vet wants to see if we can be gentle with my skin…and today i have hardly scratched! So granny says i am a work in progress 🙂 paw pats and loves Doc xxxx

  3. I really feel for you, Doc. I, too, am constantly itchy. My Mom had an allergy test done on me and a normal allergy shows in the range of something like 12-20. I was at 212 for fleas! So, if a flea is even in the same zip code as me, I’m itching. Maybe your grandma or grandpa should try shaving your furs until their very little. That helps me with my itching. Hey, maybe I’m allergic to fur??? Anywho, I hope you feel better soon! *ear licks* Noodle

  4. Gosh Doc………I’m sorry you have the “won’t leave me alone itchies” – that has to be pretty darn miserable. Wonder what’s causing it? Some kinda environmental thingie I ‘spose. I’m glad your new toy made you forget about it for a little while and I’m sending you a PILE of POTP that you get RID of those nasty itchies ASAP!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Sammy thankyou so much…we are sure it is a dietary allergy and to get my system back on track will take about 6 weeks..today i hardly scratched as the vet gave us a spray that will help..not as aggressive as cortisone and it seems to be working…my new diet i really enjoy…we just do not know why all of a sudden this started..the vet said sometimes companies buy other companies and tweek the recipes in the kibble and bang…allergies..so on the right track..we hope 😉 Hugs and paw pats Doc xxx

Dezi and Lexi thankyou…sorry we have been away and not visiting much..granny gets on then her back sings and off she goes…it’s not hotspots and most likely dietary so it will take a while for the new diet and supplements to kick in..the vet has given us a spray that is not as aggressive as a cortisone treatment and touch paws today my itching is much less..so we hope soon all will be back to normal…whatever that means granny says bol….paw pats Doc xxxx

  8. Shame Doc. Itching like that can be so bad and it’s quite yucky. Ask Simba. He is allergic to grass and get’s hayfever just like me. Also, the fact that we’re all getting older doesn’t help much either. Our immune systems is not as strong as it used to be. I am glad Granny and Granddad are taking so good care of you. I wish Simba still had those moves. 😆 You are looking good there! 😀 ♥

    1. Siddhartha Henry…yes Granny and the vet have me on herbal stuffs..i have finished a short course of antibiotics to kick the peemail infection ..my diet is now the BARF diet so gluten free…we think it is allergy and the stomach is the source of allergy..so u have probiotics once a day..a flavanoid tablet with turmeric and the vet has given Granny a spray to treat the redness as we think i am scratching because i have scratched bol…and today i am not scratching as much! So it will take about 6 weeks to get my gut under control as allergens take awhile to leave…so i am glad we have been able to avoid steroids and nasty stuff…been a rough ride …bol…paw pats and loves Doc xxx

  13. Sorry I’m late, Doc, but also having issues with human over blogging!! That is very rough having the itches when no one can find out why and put it right!! You certainly have the power of my paw, buddy and we crossing all of them that they find out what’s causing it, or better still, it just goes away!! A belated happy birthday to you xoxox
