I think I have my mystery solved.
Poor Zoey has been scratching and itching up a storm. There are scabs on her haunches. I have been looking her over really good. No fleas. Giving her benadryl. Checking all her food. Then as she was sitting there in the kitchen door I finally got a clue. I think it is from the disinfectant they use at the vets when she was boarded. That is why her haunches would be worse and her legs and tummy. Its the only thing I can think of and it started right after we boarded her there the first time. She is scheduled to be boarded again when we go to Omaha.
I am going tomorrow and get her some oatmeal shampoo and then Monday I am going to cancel the appointment at the vets for boarding and bring her to our usual place. Unless the vet will wash down the kennel with just plain water. Maybe bringing her blanket will help. So what do you think. Sound like that may be whats causing it to you guys? I can't think of anything else new. Poor old girl. I also decided I don't want to know how her biopsy turned out until after we get home. We are under enough stress right now.
Talked to MIL today. She is having a good day and BIL is being VERY attentive. If she really does only have a few weeks left how can we tell him to go. And actually she looks pretty good to me right now, but maybe its because I see her everyday. Now to convince hospice. Oh., and MIL refuses respite. She never was good about using common sense. Stubborn woman.
