Both the Bug and Ike held their alignments. Thank you, dog gods!! We have an appointment next Wednesday and then we are going to try two weeks out. Dr. Anne wants to play it by ear with Bug and his maintenance schedule.
It is funny, Bug is so happy with Anne. He wagged on the TABLE at her. He totally gets that she makes him feel better. Very cool!
Last week when I went to see Anne I told her that Bug seemed to have an ear infection and was showing some brown staining near his lower lip. My suspicion was a food intolerance of some sort. Due to Ike's distressed GI tract I had been feeding a fair amount of beef. Well, wouldn't you know it - Bug isn't tolerating the beef. Sunday I noticed Bug had a very red scabby on his chin! He hadn't taken a header or done anything else scary or stupid lately. hmmm....I called Katrin and she said that frequently happens to Niche when he is not tolerating a certain food.
So, no more beef for the Bug. When I told Anne about the scab on his chin she asked what sort of bowl I am using to feed him. I told her it is stainless steel. She tested him and suggested I switch to ceramic and stop using Kongs because of the plastic. Argh!! What am I going to do?! No kongs? I might have a mutiny in my house!
