Mr. Miserable Itchy Guy


Please don't laugh at me in my booties. This is NO laughing matter. I am having a bad allergy attack. I'm itching all over and can't help scratching and biting my legs, paws and back. To stop me ripping my skin and bloodying myself, Mom insists on putting on these ridiculous booties. They tried to cheer me up by giving me a peanut butter kong, but I wasn't in a licking mood.

This morning I went to visit the vet lady. She felt very bad for me. She said my whole body was inflamed and infected, and I had a bad ear infection.

We were sent home with antibiotics, Predisone cortisone pills and ear wash stuff and ointment. And a high vet bill.
The Predisone is supposed to make me drink a lot and pee, but I've peed ONCE all day and I just do not feel like going out to make pee-pees. Frankly friends, I'm pretty depressed. I hope these drugs kick in real soon....

Until then, I am staying on my spot on the couch trying not to lick, bite and scratch. But boy it's hard...

It is so sad Axel.... I don't know what to say....I hope you will feel better soon....

MMM said...

Poor Ax! But how'd you get an ear infection?
Have you considered wearing the booties year-round? Besides being fetching (so to speak), they'd keep you from scratching your skin off.

Eric said...

Axel, paw you. I'm sad for you - having the itchies and infection must be horrid. Aw, I hope all the pills and potions do the trick for you and soon.

Wiry wags of sympathy. Eric

Dear Axel,

It must be the water. I have a terrible bout with the itchies myself. Mom has changed my food thinking it might be my food that's causing me to bite and scratch. I hope my Mom doesn't see your blog otherwise I might be sporting something similar to those booties.

Hope you feel better soon.
