Murdock Goes To The Vet..

For the past 6 months or so we have dealt with Murdock licking & scratching himself raw.  It is so sad to watch.  I hate telling him to stop itching [because I can't even to that!] but I hate watching him hurt himself too!  He has lost so much hair!  It breaks my heart!
We've tried.. 
saying no
extra baths
washing everything he comes in contact with
less baths
Benadryl
Prednisone

He's gained weight [now 101 pounds!]
I hate being 'that owner'...you know..the crazy overprotective person...the one who treats her dog better than some children?! Ya her...but I couldn't take it anymore!  So...off to the vet we went [on Saturday]
In a last ditch effort [before allergy testing] he's taking 1 1/2 Claritin each morning, getting bathed twice a week with special shampoo, and special lotion every other day.  

PRAY this works!  I'm tired of seeing him like this & I really don't know that I could give him shots! :(

  3. The shots really do work!! Though it breaks your heart to stick him with a needle, its a lot less painful than all the raw paws, neck, etc. Bad thing is... they cost a FORTUNE! Praying Murdock improves and can't wait for him to come play with his cousin this weekend!! :)
