Boring weekend

We went back to hometown as usual on last weekend. And it had been a really bored weekend. It is really tooooooo hot outside and mom said she rather stay indoor than go out and burn her skin. We went to the vet on Saturday. The lack of vitamin K problem has gone, but the vet said, we have to be careful and alert that this thing might come back. He taught mom to check on me time by time. Mom have to use either a spoon or a coin, put on some baby oil on it, then scratch my tummy, if the place scratched got red like what I had last week, then the thing is back. The vet said I have to consume more protein all the time.

Another thing is that my skin and fur is not in very good condition. Some part of my skin got flaking and scaling. Fur came out patch by patch. The vet gave us a cream to be applied twice a day and he suggested us to have a supplement for skin.

Tadaaa!!!! This is the supplement I have to consume at least for 2 months. One tablet each day. The vet told mom that this thing is tasty to us, dogs. And that mom don't need to force me to take it. Tell you what, this is tasteless!! Mom put it in front of me, I sniff it and check on it, once I put it in my mouth, yukkkkksssssss....I hate it and I throw it out immediately. Mom crunched it and mix it in a piece of bread for me. This is better than. This is what indicated on the description booklet.

You don't look fat little one you look healthy! Too cute you are:) I like what you mentioned about the Dermo Norm, mom is going to check it out with the vet because my fur is really dull and I have flaky dry skin too, so this would work for my skin problem I'm sure. Thank you for sharing this. I like your cushion, it looks comfy! I'm so glad you are feeling better little Goofy:)

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Those are pretty good pix from a 'phone. We don't think you look fat. You might want to ask on the Bone Zone for DWB about the fur/skin probs.

Pleased you are feeling better though. Big kisses and tiny ruffs for you from Pippa.

Hi Goofy,
Glad to see you are doing better pal. We were worried about you. Mama found this link to a site that has a special dog food with lots of zinc in it. She has heard it works well for dogs with skin problems, etc. You might want to check into it:
