It's been about 7 months when I had Sable shaved down and noticed she had patches of hair loss.
On her tail too.
She's also getting these patches which are crusty and a bit tacky and I can pull out wads of her hair.
She has one spot on her back and several on her under belly like these.
The end of November I took her to the vet and was prescribed this, Soloxine, for a thyroid condition,
I was also told to use this shampoo on her weekly.
Well, I was out of town for a couple of weeks in December and didn't do the follow up appointment. I have noticed no results after the month of meds and several weeks of shampooing. It's time for her annual visit and shots so I will take her to the vet again in a week or so but in the mean time...do you have suggestions of what could be the cause of these skin problems? Have you seen any similar skin conditions on dogs? Lucy and Joe have not shown any signs of skin problems. Sable will be 10 years old in November. Let me know what you think.
After a week or more of Seattle type weather, it is finally clear and dry. Yeah, Texas definitely needs the rain but my babies were getting cabin fever. Hopefully, we can get to the dog park over the weekend. They deserve a chance to play. We hope you have a great weekend.
Sometimes Lucy breaks my heart. I often find her by herself. While I work in the yard, yeah I know just look at all those winter weeds, Joe and Sable are constantly under foot or running the fence. When I look for Lucy, I find her kicked back just watching. Maybe she doesn't feel good or maybe she just likes to watch me piddle and ponder?
As I've said before, I'm glad I don't have children. I'd be saying snap out of it or I'd be feeding them sweets or something. I'm too much of a control freak I suppose.
I just don't like to see her look so sad and lonely.
