Oh where to begin? I have been so busy.
Zeek (g-pig) is failing, Ike has been sick, and Bug is randomly losing weight. Initially I attributed the weight loss to playing with Hush. I increased Bug’s food and he regained the 4#s he lost. He was feeling skinny to me over the weekend and I weighed him on Monday - he is down 1.5# …. He is still getting the extra food and Hush is gone. I made an appointment to have bloodwork done, which the CVH really wanted me to do after the initial 4# weight loss. Then last night I discovered some sort of skin issue on Bug’s back. Dr. F thinks that is great – he hopes it is a curative skin eruption. I am a wreck due to it coinciding with the weight loss. I am hopeful (ha) it is a hot spot. I have added a cup of oatmeal to Bug’s diet in hopes of getting the weight back on him. I know grains can trigger hot spots. He also had a bath on Saturday. I did blow him dry, but perhaps the two items together caused a hot spot? I have never had to deal with a hot spot, if that is what it is, before and freaked out when I found it last night. It is not in a spot he can reach which should be good in terms of healing.
In other news, we have been attending agility class and just started up with our Rally lessons again after about a month off. We are going to start looking for some matches to attend in the fall, but first I have to get everyone healthy.
