Just a quick update on my dog. We went to the vet this moring. This is vet #4 mind you. OK, did a skin scraping and it is NOT menge. Vet thinks it is allergies. So now we are on a plan of a steroid shot a month for the rest of his life. Also he is on "better" dog food. For those who are wondering, he is 11 years old and so the quality of life is more important than prolonging his life. If those shots make him feel better, then by all means, that is what I have to do for him.
