I took Mirra and Scarlette to the vet today (Helen and Sydnee go on Friday) for vaccinations, heart worm testing, and for Mirra to have allergy testing done and have a bump examined on her nose (not only am I worrying about Scarlette having tumors, Mirra has some type of lump on the bridge of her nose
). I noticed since spring has rolled around she has really had a bad flare up. She had a couple of ear infections this winter but we put that Zymox Otic in them and they clear up. Now both of her ears look like crap and she digs them so much that they bleed. Her feet are red from licking and she's got a nasty rash in the thigh/groin area. I said enough is enough, do the allergy testing so they drew some blood today.
My question is this: What if the tests come back inconclusive? Jeff's cousin has a Lab that has terrible allergies. She's constantly itching and scratching but her tests came back inconclusive so the dog is constantly on steroids because they don't know what she's allergic to.
What if the test comes back as dust mites, pollen, ect? How do you protect your dog from that stuff?
Maybe I should stop worrying about it until I get the test results back (which could be up to 2 weeks).
Why oh why do I keep getting more dogs. Between Scarlette's tumors, Mirra's apparent allergies, Helen being a psychotic couch nazi, and Sydnee just being a little snot......I NEED A VACATION!
