I didn't realize just how bad Sable's skin condition had got till I saw her out in the bright sun light the other day. I had been putting the ointment for "hot spots" on her but it apparently is of no help. Her hair has only grown back in spots after being groomed in June.
So I got a chance to take her to the vet this week. They reaffirm that it is her thyroid that is causing this hair loss. In addition, she had ear infections in both ears. I don't mind saying that I resent it when they will only give me two weeks of meds wanting to see her again. When I drive up to the vet office I see Cadillac Escalades and Range Rovers in the parking lot and they see $$$ signs when they see me. They wouldn't bat an eye to charging me, or anyone else, $2000 a month if I'd keep going. I told her that I wanted 3 months supply of thyroid meds the next time I come back. We'll see how it goes? I might be looking for a new vet after 10 years.
