Scabs and itches!

Hello! So I had to go to the vet last week! Here's what happened, fortunately it wasn't too bad!

A few weeks ago I started getting some scabs which itched; so I'd go licking and scratching them. At first mom & dad thought I was just scratching myself when playing in the park, as there are a lot of twigs and branches. However these things kept appearing, and I'd been mostly playing in grassy, open areas, so no chance I'd get scratches there.

So they decided to send me to the vet; I walked there with mom, and the vet gave me a good check. She said it was not a parasite, rather it was some sort of bacterial infection that was causing my skin to scab. She gave me some antibiotics, and prescribed some fish oil to improve my coat, because she saw my coat was dull and my skin was quite dry. I have pretty coarse fur, so mom & dad thought it was just how I was, but the vet said it wasn't normal.

So now I'm taking all these medicines and I'm already a lot less itchy! hopefully the oil will also help me have a nice and shiny coat, to match Tallulah's, now that she had a bath she's all soft and shiny!

Well, off to take some more fish oil! See you!

Fish oil, I hope that you don't smell like fish.

Hi Riley,

Luckily I don't smell like fish, and I'm already doing better. Hope you're doing OK too! Cheers!
