I don't know what's up with this, but I've been really licking and digging at my genital area for over a week or so and even though Mom has gotten down on the floor and tried to dig through all my hair to see what was wrong, she couldn't find anything...and I kept itching and digging!
My Dad gave me a bath on Friday, but it didn't stop the itching (just made me all fluffy and clean)!
Well, my folks got worried about it over last weekend, so Dad took me to the vet (AGAIN!) on Monday and the vet said he thought (hoped) it was an allergic reaction to something (and not a larger problem on the inside!). The vet gave me a cortisone shot (I'm really good about getting shots Mom & Dad say) and a ten day supply of antibiotics, which I get morning and night. Also, the vet said to give me 2 Benadryls in the morning and 2 at night.
Mom and Dad think (pray) it's getting better now as I'm not going "down there" as much. If it clears up, Mom and Dad (and ME) will be so happy...otherwise, I'll have to go back to the vet and possibly have surgery to see what's up on the inside...please GOD, NO!!!!
But, it's looking pretty good after a few days of the medication now, so we're all encouraged and hoping this will be the end of it!
WOOF at y'all later!
