Patches is Such a Good Boy

Patches licking granuloma is very nearly totally healed - hair has grown back and there is just a tiny line to fill in. The technique we finally used was to put the Benadryl anti-itch cream on the granuloma and then immediately take patches on a 20 minute on leash walk. We walked quickly and he couldn't take time to reach and lick on the granuloma. By the time we had returned home the anti-itch had taken effect and he had forgotten about licking off the Benadryl - we did this faithfully since my last entry and it worked very well.

Patches caught kennel cough from Sasha and/or Brandy. I knew what it was and started him on anti-biotics right away. Of course it was Saturday so couldn't get to the vet until Tuesday after the Memorial Day Holiday. But there was no doubt what it was so just swiped some of Sasha's antibiotics and got him started. So he has had a far easier case than the others. Went to the vet without him Tuesday and of course the vet agreed that is what he had and gave him his own course of antibiotics and we paid back Sasha's pills. His coughing is very minimal by now.
