So Annie has had a strange rash for a couple of months. Just a couple small spots on her tummy. I’ve been watching them to make sure that it doesn’t get worse. Other things have happened to her ‘dermis’ that I’ve noticed, but never been alerted to. For example the hair behind her ears has been thinning. It’s also been thinning on the back of her legs. No big deal, she’s shedding, its spring, right? Apparently not! Annie has a skin infection that is causing the hair follicles to stop producing hair. OH MY. The red dots on her tummy grew in number the last couple of days and so I took her to the doctor yesterday. My poor tootlebug has Mange. Well at least some form of mange. She doesn’t have any bugs, or at least the Dr. couldn’t find any. No she has an infection of some sort, caused by who knows what! So now she is on an antibiotic and were waiting (up to 4 weeks apparently) to see if it clears up. She was up all night last night itching and scratching and I just feel so bad. I asked the Dr. “Just tell me straight so I can accept it, is this an unhealthy dog”? He said “No, this is an unlucky dog. She is very healthy; she just keeps getting strange ailments”.
