I'm itchy. *hiss* I mean I'm REALLY ITCHY. I've had this issue before, but mom thought I was doing better. The last few days have been a huge flare-up. I thought that if I took my sand-paper tongue and removed the fur in the offending areas that I might be able to get to the itch and make it stop. But, it keeps itching so I keep licking. When momma came home today she was upset to find that my sandpaper tongue also works well to remove skin. I have some sores now and she's afraid I'm going to get an infection. Now she tells me I have to go to a dermatologi-somethin.' I have a suspicion its going to be annoying like the vet. Can you believe mom took photos of my naked belly and sent them to my vet in our other city? I told her this was embarrassing, but she says Doc needs to know how it's going and that we need a referral. Again- "HISSES" I say. "Hisses."
Oh Calista, I hope the dermatologist helps you and you feel better soon! Being itchy is no fun!
Thank you Ivy. I hope you're feeling better too!
Calista, is it allergies? I have allergies. Are you a member of the allergy group? It might help.
Mom keeps flea meds and my allergy pills on hand. And I eat nothing but chicken and turkey.
Hope they can fix you up, the itchy scratchy are never fun.
Mom and my regular vet think it's allergies. Mom wants me to see the dermatologist to rule out any other causes. The vet thought environmental, mom thinks I have both environmental and food. When the allergy alerts are high in our area, especially molds--I have more trouble breathing, but it doesn't seem to correlate with my itchys. Mom has been trying to move me over to more canned food (only grain-free). Yes, we did just join the allergy group, but they don't seem active, unless mom didn't look in the right spot. Are you a member? Do other meats bother you? She did give me duck and venison, which I found quite yummy. These issues started mildly almost 2 years ago. I've had asthma and urinary crystal issues for most of my life...mom wishes I wouldn't keep adding to the list!
