Well, Momma took me yesterday to see a new vet, Dr. Shawn Messonnier-- he's a holistic vet and pretty famous what with having a newspaper column and books and all... We's still battling my itchies and Momma wants me to be able to go nekkid, seeing as how summer is coming and will be here before ya knows it. Full body armor don't really work in summer, especially in the Texas heat!!
He told Momma to wash me every day-- that's right, pups, every single day-- with aloe and oatmeal organic shampoo. Plus I gots some stuff to detoxify me, and some supplements for dis, some supplements for dat. The whole goal is to get me less itchy.... but since there are all kinds of herbs for that, we might have to tinker with what and how much in order to hit on the right combo of things....
I liked Dr. Shawn... in fact, I went and pulled a Whitley and barked a big dog I saw outside the glass of his office. Momma didn't know what came over me, I doesn't usually bark the big dogs, dat's Whitley's modus operandi. I's still gettin' my allergy shots, cuz they do seems to be helpin' some, fer instance, I no longer gets ear infections. I got them a lot before my shots.
So today I woke up, got a bunch of pills and potions, then after lunch we took a walk, I got a bath, an allergy shot, and then a nap. It was a wunnerful day fer a walk, warm and breezy!!
More pills and potions tonight.
Thanks to Eddie the Westie over on Dogster for pushing Momma to get me to Dr. Shawn... we jest hope he helps me as much as he helped Eddie.
