Losing my tail feathers!

Well, pals, it looks like I've lost some of my gorgeous tail feathers. but my tail still works! The insides of my back legs are kinda bare too and look like I got a bad haircut. It's more like thinning than fur falling out. The rest of my body looks okay.

Somehow, both my parents ended up calling Dr. Shaw today. Mom talked to one of his nurses and Dad talked to Dr. Shaw. They both thought it was possible that the cause is from the chemo but not the new antibiotic I'm taking. We could go and see my regular vet or wait until my appointment next Friday for them to make an assessment. We decided to wait until next week., since I'm not itching nor acting any different.

I forgot to tell you that I've had to cut back on eating my homemade cookies too because I gained a couple of those pounds I lost! Bummer.

I hope I don't lose any more fur, and really shouldn't, but we'll figure out what caused it.

Hi Doo and Austin! Thanks. I go every other Friday now so no treatment until next week. At least I know I'll get cookies there though!

Love, Quincy

It's going to be hard to shake your tail feathers if they are thinning out, Quincy! I'm glad you don't have the itchies! Have a pawsome weekend.

Quincy! I hope they can find out what is causing your beautiful fur to fall out. Don't worry though buddy, it will grow back. :) Sorry to hear about your cookies....Mom is putting me on a diet this week too. Im getting much too tubby. I told her it's more of me to love, but she didn't fall for that. Hehe. :)
