Wednesday evening 24th August

I am late today as it has been one of those days and things kinda went pear shaped.
Our vet visit went OK , lots of ticks in the boxes about weight, teeth and general health. The vet believes the skin problems are allergies due to pollen, grass, seeds or similar and prescribed some tablets we were to give her twice a day for two weeks. We also got some Isoderm which we have used before for Maggie and Maya too, for the times when the tea tree and lavender cream isn’t enough. This cream is recognised by the vet so we shall make sure we always have a good supply of it (currently 7 jars of 50ml as it doesn’t come in anything larger).

We gave her the first tablet this afternoon and while I went shopping, Hubby took her for a walk. This turned out not to be a good idea due to too many people, the heat, and being lethargic to the point of ‘zonked out’. We looked the stuff up on the internet and calculated the sums of dose by weight, and it seemed rather high for a dog less than 12 months, so we rang the vet for advice and guidance. The receptionist checked with him and came back to tell us this reaction was unusual and that he would call us to discuss it later this evening.
His advice was not to give her any more, and to take the remaining 27 tablets back for a refund. Our bill today was £126.80, £73 of which was for these pills, less our discount. That’s a lot of money for something we can’t use, so we are back up there tomorrow after Hubby’s cholesterol reducing injection.
She seems OK now, has had her dinner and is currently dozing at my feet.

Have a lovely evening. Keep safe everyone.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That’s a bit of a worry, I hope Maya’s ok now

    • She seems OK. I’ve taken her for her final walk and she was very good trotting along beside me taking it all in. She’s eaten her dinner and drinking OK
