more problems
May 10, 2010

I've only had Plum for 11 months and in that short time she has had UTI's, colitis, uterus infection, pyometra, heart condition, bacteria infections, yeast infections, chronic ear infections, skin infections, wrinkle infections, food allergies, environmental allergies, behavioral issues, itching, biting, licking, rubbing, chewing herself raw, vomiting,... I know I'm missing several others but I've lost count.

She is back to having some kind of allergic reaction again. This time she is going at her feet and scratching her chin until it bleeds. I suspect an environmental cause as her diet hasn't changed much. I have no idea what the trigger is this time or how to stop it, it may be the spring pollen or grass, or maybe even all the dust that has been kicked up in the house from packing, moving, and cleaning. I don't know but I am just praying when we get to the new place she stablizes again.

Oh I can also add a sty to her long list of ailments. She came up with this one on her eye the other day and then scratched it until it burst.

The next day I woke up with a sty in my eye...in almost the same spot. Which is pretty weird because I haven't had one in about 10 years and I know they aren't Zoonotic. The only other explanation I can come up with is that I'm starting to assimilate pug problems, like a Borg.

God, I hope we can move soon. The stress of living in limbo is starting to take us both down.

Poor Plum and poor Lori
That itching has to be the worst, wish I could help but the only thing that comes to mind is the pollen grass reaction. Lola gets these pimples on her underside that the vet feels is from pollen, at least she does not itch.
Hope things start to happen on the house will be saying some prayers for you and Plum.

Could it be some tiny little bug, like mites, etc? Did you ever try Gentocin for the itching? You get it from the vet. I used it on me last night after something bit me, most likely a mosquito. Could it be mosquitoes biting her? This one got me inside the house. Do you use Advantage, etc? Maybe she is allergic to something like that An oatmeal bath might relieve her itching or a vinegar bath. Hope she feels better soon and you too. Is the move back on, I know you had a halt awhile back on the paperwork.

lori, i'm now washing miko's feet when he comes back in the house, to get the pollen off. it can't hurt, and this way, he's not ingesting as much pollen. he was chewing on his feet like mad, earlier this evening.

Oh no... Poor Plum... I'm sending good thoughts to the both of you!

Poor Plumy! Marlene and I are keeping her in our human & pug thoughts!

Poor Plum! And poor you!

Could be all the seasonal allergies are kicking, you should check out the weather report to see what is bad right now so you get an idea of what she is allergic too?

And i hope the house thing gets settled fast so you can move in your pug farm already!!
