Lovng Life at the Beach #FueltheCure #FueltheLove

Loving Life at the Beach

This dog loves the beautiful blue ocean, or maybe just the soft sand under his paws. He's not so fond of getting wet, though. Still, there's tons of fun to be had at the sea side besides swimming. There are holes to be dug, sand crabs to capture, and lots of open space to run.

What is Wrong With the Dog?

I was worried about Max. 

What is wrong with dog? #dogs #doghealth #itchy #dogfood #grainfree #fleaprevention

My dog, Max, became so itchy again recently. He has a history of being a very itchy dog, but he had been doing fantastic for a long time. And then he rubbed and chewed his poor little back up. I bathed him in a soothing oatmeal pet shampoo, sprayed stuff on him daily that is supposed to relieve the itch and keep him from chewing, but nothing was working.

He had been looking so good and it all went downhill so fast. I put a shirt on him, but it didn't quite cover his whole back, so didn't help much. He was not looking in good shape at all. His scratching was keeping us up at night.

It took me a while to think of what was bothering him. For one his flea medicine was soon to run out, but it wasn't quite time for a new flea pill, yet. However, I have noticed it lose effectiveness shortly before the next pill is due. If he even gets one bite, he has a rash all over. But the worst part, I realized, was that I had bought him the wrong food!

I had purchased a natural food that was filled with all the nutrition I normally look for in dry dog food, but I mistakenly bought him some that was not grain free. I immedietly went out and got him the right grain free dog food and after a few days his itchiness was so much better. Now he's finally looking fabulous again. All his hair has grown back in that he had chewed off. No more scabs and red spots. I took him to the vet to get him a new round of flea pills. The topical stuff doesn't work on him and though we keep our home flea free as much as possible, there is no avoiding the occasional little beast.

Phew, so glad Max feels better. It's heart breaking to know he is so uncontrollably itchy!
