Poor poor poor Sophie! She is so embarrassed and miserable, just look at that face! Sophie is suffering from allergies and her skin is pink and itchy. She has had this problem all her life and the vets can never figure out what she is allergic to. She is seeing a specialist in dermatology ( that sounds so la dee da!) hopefully he can figure it out. She scratches do much that it breaks the skin and gets infected from her licking and scratching. But I know I'm no vet but he is treating the infection first and then we will look into the cause of the itch. Okay but it's getting infected because of the itching so doesn't it make sense to stop the itching? He does not want her on cortisone so she is being treated with antibiotics and a antihistamine. Needless to say she is walking around here like Eeyore with her head down low and a look of "why bother"! Poor Sophie!
