"Our pets' heads are falling off"

     Okay, well it's not a Dumb and Dumber situation, but our pets' hair is falling out. And it has been for several months. I don't know if you remember when Mosby started losing hair and had bald spots all over him. I posted about it here. He was on medication that stopped most of the hair loss and he no longer had patches. So, we gave him a fish oil supplement and thought all was better. When we moved back to Crosby we noticed some serious thinning going on, so I just took him back to the vet. They think he has an infection that causes him to itch and when he scratches his hair falls out. Whatever. They gave us an antibiotic, a steroid, a cortisone shot, and an antibacterial shampoo.

He likes the air conditioner to blow right in his nose

Here we go

All sudsy. We had to wait 15 minutes before it could
be rinsed off. He kept trying to lick it. Yuck.

My mom's dog (who was mine before Mom stole her but Bella's better anyway so whatever) occasionally loses patches of hair, too. We used to worry it was cancer or something crazy like that, but thankfully it was just an allergy. I hope this works for Mosby! Itching is no fun.
