Tierce has been scratching… Scratching… SCRATCHING! It started when the serious heat of summer began, so we were thinking that this has something to do with the heat.
We took him to the vet for his annual checkup and he got his rabies shots. The vet said that the scratching was probably an allergy or the heat and to add some fish oil and coat boosters to his food.
However, Tierce has started to scratch at his eyes! Some of the hair has been worn away… I’m hoping that this is a food allergy and a switch to GO! Grain Free will accomplish some improvement. I’m hoping that it’s not demodectic mange or some other real big nasty. However, only a trip back to the vet will tell for sure.
My trainer and Shassi’s breeder say it could be a reaction to the 3 yr rabies shot and to just wait for his immune system to get back up and running. I’m still worried about him. We’re going to try to get him in on Saturday, but it depends on whether I can get an appointment. Otherwise, I’ll probably have to take some time off of work to haul his furry ass into the office.
Wish us luck… 🙁
