Young Fredds is actually teaching my two oldies some manners!! They have always become quite hysterical when I do any vacuuming and attack the vacuum cleaner ferociously, this has been going on for 13 years....but Fredds, who is scared of many things, doesn’t mind the vacuum cleaner and my other two are beginning to be much calmer around it too! 0002.gif]

Taking Fredds to the vet this morning as he has had a sore foot for a couple of days and has been hopping along on three legs (it hasn’t stopped him enjoying his short walks though!). But mainly I want to get his itching dealt with as it is sometimes quite bad and he spends a lot of time chewing his feet....
Feeling somewhat trepidatious about the visit, and am very grateful to lovely Helen who is coming with me to provide moral (and possibly physical!) support!!
Will let you know what happens.... :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

Hi Shoura, of course, I don't know what is causing Fredds itching, so hope the vet can tell you. Just a thought though, what are you feeding him? Sometimes, feeding raw can help with skin and tummy problems, so do bear this in mind if you aren't already doing that. I have fed my dogs raw for some years now, and swear by it. Let us know how you get on with the terror x

Well I’m happy to report that all went well! Fredds was obviously very scared but he let the lovely vet (Jessie at EG veterinary hospital) put the muzzle on him and didn’t make a fuss as she examined him. He didn’t like having his anal glands checked (they were fine) but didn’t snarl or snap at all angel13.gif]
Jessie was great with him, very gentle, and has given him Apoquel for the summer. If it’s grass allergy we can try weaning him off it in the autumn/winter and see how he gets on.
Good boy Fredds! And thank you Helen for coming with us, I’d been dreading this moment for weeks and it couldn’t have gone any better really! love4.gif
Regarding raw food, I’m not very keen for some reason... I did try my other two on it some years ago but they didn’t really like it. But at the time I was getting it from a local butcher so maybe it wasn’t very good quality?? I will look into it again. Ideally I would like them all having the same thing, it would make life so much easier 😂😂

My terrier has done really well on Apoquel - no more itching and no side effects! Good luck, hope it works.

I have fed raw for 15 yrs now and wouldnt use anything else ....you can buy raw food with veggies included from pets at home ....alot easier with 3 small dogs ...i buy the meat and cook my own veggies grate raw fruit add oats ...it does take more effort than kibble feed but as Teresa says..i too swear by it ...the health benefits outweigh the extra time needed ...
Great news Fredds was such a good boy at the vets ...he seems to be settling in very well :thanks.gif: woo.gif] love4.gif

Fredds was amazing - I was so proud of him. What I loved especially was the way he stuck close to Shoura all the time. I took him for a quick sniff of the vet car park afterwards but when he heard Shoura's voice he just wanted to go back inside the building. I am just so happy he has found his forever home. He is so happy - just gives you a lovely warm feeling to see him with Shoura and his new family. :smiley-bounce016.gi: :smiley-bounce016.gi: :smiley-bounce016.gi:
