She has had a itching skin problem on and off forever. We always assumed it was allergies, but the Vets could never figure it out. She has been on Steroids, Allergy meds, Antibiotics, special food, special shampoos you name it we have tried it.
So after many tests and a day of "observing" by our Vet, he concluded her itching is a psychological/anxiety problem. The itching has become a habit for her. She itches and itches causing open wounds and then they get infected. It's a cycle that has gone on most her life.
I have a hard time believing it's anxiety.....I know she has had a hard time with the move. She follows me everywhere and cries when we leave. But I keep thinking of when we lived in SLC she had the itching and never had a problem with being alone.
So in the mean time, the coarse of treatment is mild sedation to relax her and hopefully break the habit. And more antibiotics for cure the infection . Booties to stop her hind legs from doing any more damage.
I hope it works cause my baby is suffering. For now she is sleepy but not itching.
