IN CASE YOU DON'T REALIZE IT-- I AM NOT A VET-ERNARIAN....- AND MY EXPERTISE COMES FROM HEAVILY RELYING ON GEORGE...  WHO HAS BEEN KNOWN TO BE CORRECT  OFTEN...

I CAN NOT REMEMBER ALL THE DOGS WHO CURRENTILY HAVE SOMETHING  WIERD GOING ON... MOSTLY SKIN, AND TOES.  AND THESE ARE NOT DOGS LIVING  HERE  BUT ONES WHO LIVE HUNDREDS OF MILES FROM HERE AND ARE NOT NECESSARILY DIRECTLY  RELATED TO EACH OTHER...

MY ASSUMPTION IS ALLERGY'S
I WOULD ALSO CONSIDER-- GREAT DANE PUPS GOING THRU A GROWTH STAGE OFTEN GET SOME SKIN THING  WHICH RESOLVES WITH BASIC CARE.

  CASPER HAS SOME OOZING TOE THING....  THIS DOES NOT EXPLAIN  BAILEY'S TOE---  SHE IS LICKING IT AND I NOTICED   THERE IS ONE PINHOLE WHICH IS DRIPPING OR OOZING BLOOD.  SHE IS 10 YEARS OLD- SO THERE GOES THE PUPPY THEORY..

MOST PEQUILIAR IS THE BIG FOOT THING.... FOR YEARS WE HAD ONE FRONT FOOT SWOLLEN TWICE IT'S SIZE--  TEMP- LETHARGIC- BY THE TIME I GOT ROUND TO GOING TO GEORGE ( 3 DAYS) THEY WERE  OFTEN BETTER...  ONE FRONT FOOT-- NEVER A BACK FOOT-- AND NEVER BOTH FRONT FEET...  ALL  THOSE DOGS WERRE RELATED TO TIFFANY - OF THE BMW KENNEL ( A VERY WELL KNOWN KENNEL--- AND OTHER  DANE PEOPLE HAVE COME  ROUND  IN THE PAST FEW YEARS TO CALLING IT   THE BIG FOOT..

EXCEPT ANN SAYS KARMA HAS A H UGE  BACK FOOT.... AND LAST NIGHT ALICE ( WITH PISTOL) SAID SHE HAS A BACK FOOT-- BOTH THOSE ARE GOING TO THE VET'S TODAY--- I DON'T KNOW...  IT IS NOT MY USUAL BIG FOOT SCEENERIO..

???? GEORGE?????--  SHALL   I GIVE BAILEY A BENEDRYL??

ACTUALLLY  BIAL;EY IS THE ONLY ONE NEAR DANVERS ANIMAL  HOSPITAL- AND THE PINHOLE IS NOT SPURTING ( MY CRITERIOR FOR TAKING HER TO SEE GEORGE) 
 IF I Ran down there with every pinhole around here we  WOULD NEVER BE HOME


 BUT   SOMETHING IS GOING ON....  
************

TODAY 

 LAUREN IS DOING WELL WITH  BORIS-- HE AHS A FEW HANGUPS -- HE IS YOUNG--- THE DEBATE IS -- DO WE SEND THEM HOME TOGETHER??  HE IS RIGHT ON GETTEIN HER  TO HER FEET WHEN SHE FALLS... HE 'S GOT THAT PART...  BUT HIS IS NOT A YEAR YET AND IS THE GAWKY PUPPY AT TIMES.

WE HAVE 47 TONS OF GRANITE TO ORGANIZE, THE FRONT PORCH TO ENCLOOSE AND SORT OUT... 

IN GETTNG THE SHELVING WE WERE ELIGIBLE FOR 2 WEBER GRILLS-- SO WE NOW HAVE 2 OF THOSE IN THE OVERFLOW AREAQS...

THERE WAS A THIRD- I ALREADY FORGOT...

AND HAVOC NEEDS TO TRY THINKING... I NEED TO SPEND TIME WITH HER.  SHE IS NOT LEASH TRAINED BY A LONG SHOT... I THOUGHT I WOLD TRY HAVING HER WALK UP THE LADDER-- JUST AS A VARITEY REQUEST...

AND SO IT GOES...

  1. CARLENE, I HAD A CHOW MIX THAT HAD SKIN AND FOOT ISSUES ALL HIS LIFE. HE LIVED TO A RIPE 13 YEARS OLD. DURING THE HOT SUMMER IT WAS PREDNISONE (WE TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE) THAT WORKED. WHEN THE YEAST/FUR LOSS ISSUES BECAME BAD, WEEKLY OATMEAL BATHS AND WITH THE FOOT I LEARNED IT WAS EITHER A YEAST ISSUE OR HE HAD STEPPED ON A PRICKER BUSH ROOT AND HAD PUNCTURERED IT.

  2. AERO MY LAB HAS JUST RECOVERED FROM SAID FOOT ISSUES... ALL FOUR. SHE HAD YEAST INFECTION WITH SOME BACTERIAL ISSUE AS WELL... THE ONLY THING THAT CURED IT WAS MAL-A-KET FOOT WHIPES, ORAL ANTIBIOTICS AND ORAL YEAST MEDICATION PRESCRIBED BY THE VET. I ALSO MADE SURE SHE COULDN'T KEEP GETTING THOSE FEET WET. I AM SENDING YOU THE BOOTIES THAT WERE TOO LARGE FOR HER. THEY ARE WONDERFUL FOR TRACTION TOO :)

  3. My beagle/shih-tzu always got a skin allergy on her hip every August and she would lick it obsessively until the fur came off and then she still liked it. The vet said it was some kind of skin allergy and prescribed Prednisone. It took awhile but this usually worked. She would usually get her fur back by the following August in time to start all over!
