Back from the vet again..

Prepared to go back to hometown on last Saturday.
When we reached hometown, grandma told us that Scooby isn't doing well. He seems having difficulty breathing. So Aunt Janei and mom decided to bring him to the vet on Sunday. Mom said I will be going along too, to have the vet to check my skin and fur. All the while my skin and fur is not in good condition. I shed real lot and I scratch alot. Mom thought this is my kibbles problem. So she bought me some nice holistic kibbles expecting me to do well with it. But there's no really any improvement. Since Scooby is going to the vet, we go along to have a check too.
Scooby's condition is due to his body weight! The vet told us that Scooby is a little overweighted, and caused he had this problem. And the vet did told us that Scooby is coming to cough too. He has quite some flam in his troat. So the vet gave him some antibiotic and a cough medicine, in case he really started cough.
As for me. The vet said, I have to go thru a 'monitoring process', to check out what does my coat in this condition. We have to check what I'm allergic to. So it started by, feeding me chicken and rice only, for 5 days!!! Real food, pals!!! That would be more delicious than kibbles right? Along goes with 2 kinds of allergic pills. After 5 days, if my coat goes nice, I would have to start back my kibbles. If the other way happened, after 5 days, my coat still in that condition, that would mean chicken and rice is not going to be my food anymore. We have to check step by step, to see what I'm allergic to. And pals..... The bad news is, my treats have to be stopped for AT LEAST these 5 days!!!!!!!
Anyway, no worries, pals... This is actually a good news for me. Real chicken and rice for 5 days!!! I'll be out of those plain kibbles for 5 days!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!
Mom: This little boy really have lots of problems since I've adopted him. Parvo Virus was the 1st and the most horrible time I had with him. Thanks God, Goofy has gone thru that safely. Then comes his long term lack of vitamin problem. Every now and then, I have to do skin test on his skin. And all the while, his skin and coat is not in good condition. I did have problems with my parents when I adopted him back due to all these problems Goofy is having. But Goofy have his way to win their heart (but not always, b'coz Goofy is quite mischevious in hometown with them :P). Other than all these. This little boy is a real active dog. A real hyper active one. He really makes me happy!!!

Poor Goofy,
We hope they figure out your allergies soon. You probably aren't allergic to rice, but could be to chicken. Or it could be the preservatives, etc. that goes into some dog foods. Going with a holistic, no preservative dog food is wise. Be sure to check what ingredients are in your treats also. You should ask your vet about having a teaspoon of salmon oil each day. If they don't find your allergy, you might just be dry. Salmon oil is very good for the skin & coat. We have it every day, yummy! We hope you feel better soon.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
