Hey, ya'll - sorry I'm late, being the host and all, but this has been one crazy, jam-packed week of stuff. Birthdays, anniversary, parties... And now it's time to get back on track.
I wanted to see your pets close up. I will actually only focus on my dogs this time, because Revan (pictured below) was the inadvertent inspiration for this topic.
We tried a antimicrobial and bathing, thinking it was maybe ringworm or just some weird dermatitis... But the fact that it was everywhere, even his big 'ol paws made me wonder.
He was feeling much more normal, resuming his greeting duties and lap-warming duties with lots of enthusiasm. But then he started with the scratching and licking again.. His skin was starting to go red again, and after reapplying the antimicrobial, I realized that his hair was definitely getting in the way of applying medication. So I decided to shave him.
He feels so much better now! No more licking or scratching. I'm putting the antimicrobial on him every night, which appears to have stopped the re-infection. He'll be a lot easier to bathe now too.
And this is Kida...
