Update on Chel's Vet Visit

On Friday, we went to the vet to deal with the itchy skin issue.

Fortunately, she does not have red, irritated skin or open sores, but unfortunately, it makes the source of the itchiness difficult to pinpoint. My vet and I both agreed medicating her would not be appropriate, as there are no signs of infection or open wounds. We left with omega 3 fatty acid pills to help her skin (I have to puncture the capsule and squeeze on to her food every morning) and some shampoo to use if the itching gets bad. I am also supposed to wipe her down when comes in from doing her thing, to remove any allergens that might have been on her.

Overall, I am satisfied with the options, and hope it helps. She seems to be better, but hard to tell if it was just too damn hot to itch this weekend. Thanks to everyone who has asked.
