Cushings? Of course that's just me guessing out loud. Let us know what you find out.
Well right after I posted we flipped her over and after a through search found 2 fleas. Still took her to see the vet. No way 2 fleas could cause this.I would consider Cushings or even hypothyroid Fence. Scooter has the profile for Cushings, tubby, pot bellied but so far the hair loss does not seem too bad like in thinning around the flanks. Does he drink a lot of water?
Some blood tests should point you in the right direction.
This is all getting a bit distant for me too.
A few less snacks probably would help her also............ COLWell right after I posted we flipped her over and after a through search found 2 fleas. Still took her to see the vet. No way 2 fleas could cause this.
The vet believes it to be a flea allergy.
We don't really have to deal to much with fleas here and apparently the wet weather might be favoring fleas.
Cushing's hasn't been ruled out. Although he said at her age he typically would treat Cushing's with benign neglect. Since it causes little discomfort. Anyways a couple of really through bathings with some expensive shampoo and we'll see.
I did notice she slept all night. No prowling about the house. Maybe she felt better, or maybe just tired from the big day..... thanks, and she would like to perform her trick for y'all....
