Cursed

I'm beginning to think I'm cursed.  Perhaps I'm just crazy collecting animals like there's no tomorrow.  Today, I went into the vet's to pay my latest bill (and yes, what I spend at the vet's would likely feed a poor nation), while I was there I asked Sam about some of the dog issues that having been coming up.  Issues like Bella's continued and excessive butt scootching.  Issues like Joe's nasty diarrhea.  (I have a pretty hardy stomach but cleaning up after the poor soul makes me gag.)  

Long story short, Bella now has a topical cream to be applied twice daily to her hind end which will hopefully stop what Sam thinks may be a minor infection.  And Joe has some antibiotics to help settle his stomach.  Sam gave a fancy name that I don't remember but she thinks he has some doggy illness (likely arrived with it) that we'll treat.  Ha, and here I thought I needed to change his dog food.  

I should know in 7-10 days if both treatments worked.  If they don't, we'll monkey with the dog food in case of allergies.

I agree with Canadian... good momma you are! One thing I've dealt with in my cattle dog is anal gland infections (sorry)... so I get the vet to clear them out every time I go in... has your vet done this?

Sadly, yes, my dog's have had their anal glands done, and even more sadly is Bella's post vet-check butt scootching. An anal infection (poor dog!!) is what the vet thinks it is - hence the cream.

Lucky me - swiping her ass twice a day. lol

:)

If there's still a problem Sam (the vet) will be out on the 7th to preg check Whiskey, so I can have her check again.
