On Monday I noticed many more open sores, especially on her tail. Upper part near her butt. When I combed it, clumps of hair fell out. Same with other areas. When I combed it clumps of hair fell out. She has bald spots more and more. I called the vet again, as he wanted an update after a week. told me to continue with the antibiotics, increased thyroid medication., benadryl and this big old vitamin supplement. Told me that by no means should either dog be getting table scraps. Well, you try to give 15 pills a day to a dog who spits them out! I told him I try to hide it in people food. She sometimes finds them and spits them out, other times she puts her nose up and walks away. Sometimes she eats them. We have gotten pretty creative in the pill giving area. He now prescribed a shampoo. So, I picked up the $30 bottle of shampoo. Gave her the bath(which she hates). I was afraid it may be uncomfortable with the open sores as this shampoo has peroxide in it, and the caution said "may bleach towels and rugs". However she seemed much more relaxed and comfortable after. I did a blow dry, which she loves. Says to shampoo 2 - 3 times a week. Things did look a bit better on Tuesday. Wednesday, her eyes seemed so spacy. But I guess when you take 6 benadryl a day anyone would be spacy. Want to stay away from the prendisone, last resort at this time. Causes so much weight gain, the very reason the thyroid test was initially given...overweight! I still have this feeling it is because of the other dog. Wednesday night husband was giving the dogs treats. Chloe would never even take a treat unless you tell her it is ok. Pup jumped up and took it right out of husband's hand. So he said, "no, not nice, go away!" so, Chloe put her head down and walked away. Just wondering if she thinks everytime we say anything negative to the pup if she thinks we are talking to her.
