Oh my gosh Dyan, you are so right about the perils of searching the net. It's such a great tool, but can certainly overload
eople like me and in my situation. Last night my husband said "look, she's now got bumps on her chest too" and this morning I said "honey, come feel this" I felt a lump internally right where her ribcage ends. He said "okay, you're starting to overreact now". Ya think??? I know he's worried too though.
I looked at her tummy this morning and it's just so bad. The area we originally started treating for pseudo and staph (belly area) now has welts again. That's the area they said only Cipro and Clindamycin would work on and if it didn't, there were no other oral antibiotics that would work. So not sure what we're going to do about that. I tried putting the Ketachlor shampoo on and she was okay for the tummy, but when I got to the yeast area (vulva), she freaked out and jumped up. I couldn't even get the shampoo off. As you know, when they decide they're done...they're done.
The vet said she thought they could do the biopsy with local anesthesia, but I'm going to tell them to sedate her. I just don't think she's going to hold still to have three areas cut and sutured and I want her to be comfortable.
Janice - You know, they've never done blood work on her other than for her thyroid, so for all I know she could be anemic or have other issues. I think I should ask for a complete blood work-up, don't you?
