Give a girl a break....geez

Well, Ched's rash/skin irritation hasn't gotten better. Even being on a high dose of Cephalexin (again) it has gotten worse...so back to the vet yesterday.

So, I had a giant list of areas to point out that were itchified/flaky and some questions. In addition to the skin thing, I am really concerned that her little front dainty-girlie wrist sure gets contorted in weird directions with her movement.

Asside -> Illustration:
1. Hold your hand out palm down.
2. Rotate your fingers 90 degrees clockwise
3. Rotate your palm down, pinky first 10 degrees.

WELL....with each hop Cheddar takes when going a slower pace, this is how her foot lands on the ground. Now you see what I am talking about.

So, I asked the doctor to make some recommendations on what to do...and we ordered a carpal brace fit to her footie. Nothing intense, just something for a little support. Hope it works. :)

That brings me to something else. Why is it that you don't get the information you really need to support your pet ahead of time or even at all? If I did not ask the 8 zillion questions that I do, I would be floundering and my kid would suffer. Thank goodness, once again for my friend, D and her 3-legged Vizsla, Ch Razn the Bar JH "Bart" and the online boards and the REAL advice that has made life smoother.

I think next I will work on a supply list of all the crapola I know of that has helped make life easier....hmmmm....

  1. Cheddar, if your Mom makes that list, we'd love to see it on Tripawds.com. It would be so great to share it with other Tripawd pawrents there! Thanks for considering it.
