find a dermatologist


Suttree Update

Yesterday, we got about 11" of snow. It’s supposed to snow more today and on Monday. Suttree seems to really enjoy it for the 5 minutes he can stay out before he starts shaking like crazy. I flipped this photo to B&W so you cannot see how pink and red his underside and legs are. 🙁

To read what Suttree has been going through for the past year (almost), check here and here.

Well, Suttree has been eating the extremely expensive and tasteless Purina HA for over a month now. It’s not helping and he still needs to gain weight. He got over his Staph infection in about a week, but the dermatologist kept him on the antibiotics for 3 weeks, just to be on the safe side. When I pulled him off the prednisone (about 2 weeks into the prednisone/antibiotic combo), he started itching and turning red again. Since then, I have been giving him 10mg of prednisone a day, just to keep him sane and from getting infected again.

At this point, I think it’s time to do an overall allergy test and run blood work with the dermatologist, or perhaps, try a third opinion. (I worked with my vet in Arizona for 6 months with this before working with the dermatologist in Missouri for the last 5 months.) I haven’t done this yet because the dermatologist was set on this being a food allergy, but now that we have exhausted every hypoallergenic recipe and food and he’s still not getting better, I’m thinking it’s not a food allergy. So, I think it’s time to bite the bullet and pay for the big tests and *hope* we get an answer to the problem.

That being said, I am still running a 50% off sale of *everything* in my Etsy to help pay for some of these ongoing vet/dermatologist bills. The link to my Etsy can be found on my profile. Just message me before purchasing and I will change the price. Also, if there happens to be anything on my stream you would like a print of, just let me know and I will charge half the cost of what I normally charge.

For those of you who have helped already, THANK YOU SO MUCH. Words cannot express my (our) gratitude.
