Unhappy Harley, what is wrong??

We're at a loss completely with Harley.

The Revolution that we put on her is not helping at all. We've discontinued the use of steroids, as our vet said it's not making anything better.

She's been refusing to even go outside to do her business. She'll do her usual "I'm going to run in a circle because I have to potty," but when we go to let her out, she'll go towards the door and back up.

She's been urinating and deficating in the house. She vomited up grass today.

Nothing we are doing seems to be helping. I called and left a message on the veterinary clinic's answering machine. I'm wondering if it's best if we keep her overnight to see what they can do.

I'm sorry..... If it helps we are still struggling over here, we are now dealing with diarrhea and all Beau and Dakota do is scratch and chew all day.... We took Dakota in to the vet yesterday as Beau get's really bad car sick, anyhow they haven't a clue they think it is a flea allergy and we are now going to try stronghold (u.k. version of revolution) as frontline top spot and the spray aren't working well at all, and we can't get frontline plus here....anyhow they also took some blood from Dakota and that got ran over to the lab, results should come today or tomorrow, we are hoping they don't find anything serious I know and understand your frustration completely too well, and I pray for both you and us that something can be found, because it sure sounds like Harley is going through the exact same thing as Dakota and Beau

I left a message last night at the vet clinic, and they called back today.

We're dropping her off Monday morning. Nothing we are doing is working, and I'm ready to pull all of my hair out.

We took a blacklight to her to see if we could find ringworm (that's how we found the animals at work had it), and there were no glowing spots where the fur was missing, so that's a good sign.

But, it's also bad because we still don't know what's going on. I'm going to also take a stool sample in, see if they can run that. Same time I'll be taking Pumpkin's stool sample in to see if the bacterial infection cleared up.

Kim, did you ever find out the results from the bloodwork? I'm curious to what it is, so I can have Dan suggest they test to see if it's that.

She goes in tomorrow, so I really do hope they find something. Our past week and weekend have been non stop busy. Now, we have more on our plates than ever come tomorrow!

We have to get stuff off the computer, save it to disk, etc. Save favorites, blah blah blah. On top of having to worry about Harley and cleaning the house, etc.....

Well the blood tests came back, and Dakota showed negative on everything they tested for, which is great however it still leaves us clueless for the most part, so the only thing we can go on, is that he and Beau are suffering from a severe flea allergy, after all one flea can do alot of damage

CCL, I am praying all is well with Harley. You must be on pins and needles wondering what could be wrong. Hang in there and let's hope the outcome is positive (meaning good not that there is something wrong).

Went to the vet.

Did another skin scraping and couldn't find anything. They said to try a different food, as it could be allergies.

She's gobbling up the new food like it's no tomorrow. Let's hope that is all it is, although I still think part of it was her scraping along the stuff in the back that needs to be taken out. Lots of weeds and stuff back there.

When we first got home, I looked outside and saw a white thing zip by. Didn't know what the heck it was, a rabbit or whatever.

I went outside to check it out, and along comes this BIG cat!! Harley went nuts and tore into the crap outside. We had fun trying to get her in.

If this food doesn't work, we are demanding a blood test.

I would bet it's an allergy of some sort since nothing else is working. I would ask about a referral to a dermatologist if the food doesn't take care of it. I hope he feels better!

Jade that is a good suggestion about the dermatologist.... I wish we had those here..... I have nothing to put on Beau and Dakota as we have stopped the aloe/baby oil rub downs due to trying out the Stronghold.....
CCL I really hope Harley is feeling better soon, I know ho miserable she must feel

I'm actually going to call another vet tomorrow. I see commercials on tv all the time about a vet that specializes in allergies.

Maybe he can help!

She scratches like crazy! In the house, outside of the house, in the car, etc.

I really think if it was the cat like Dan insists, she wouldn't scratch outside of the house.
