Well, tis the season for T-Bone's biannual check up. Boy, was he thrilled...not! I had to carry him back to the exam room as he decided he was not voluntarily going any further than the waiting room.
He's been an itchy son of a gun lately. NON STOP SCRATCHING AND LICKING HIS FEET!! I feel so bad AND it's so annoying. He's on Claritin daily to try to help what allergies may be causing irritation. The vet game him some prednisone to help give an extra boost and that has done pretty well, but perhaps its effects are starting to wear off :( But we go back in another week so we shall address his issue again. In the meantime, he's getting his medicated bath and I'm powdering his feet and belly. On a not so good note, the doc noticed something in his ear. He said he has a mass growing in the ear canal - eek! He's never seen it in there before. So, that's why we are going back to get it rechecked. Hopefully it hasn't grown any more and best of all, it be gone. But, we shall see. So, send T-Bone happy thoughts!
Stella also headed in for a 6 month check up on her kidney enzymes. They were high back when we were doing some blood work and testing for Cushing's. Thankfully, she had a good report that levels were normal. Woohoo!! She'll have her biannual check in April so they'll check again to make sure all is staying normal.
Sarge has nothing to report. He's just a happy fat boy who loves all the acorns that are still in the yard. I tell him not to eat them (probably another reason my vocal chords have nodules) and get him away from the trees but that boy is determined!
