Itchy Bum

Lee has been obsessively licking her bum at night. I think only at night because she has been too tired from camp. It wakes her up in the night, it wakes us up . . . we let it go a couple days (don't want to rush if things aren't serious) and then I took her to the vet. Given that she was at camp, I was afraid she had picked something up.

We drive in rush hour across the city . . . the 20 minute drive took 1 hour 5 minutes. We were late. The vet still saw us (Thanks Woody). Lee hated being there. She was so stressed. She has lost .5 kg at day camp!

I must say she did a very good job at tolerating an anal exam. She was desperate to get out of the room when done and scratched and barked. Woody's exam found nothing. Her anal glads seem fine. No swelling, no redness, nothing. Everything seems good. Of course it does. This is what we are trying:

1) Stool sample to rule out parasites. I was unable to take a stool sample today (I missed her going this morning when I was checking the skunk traps . . . no catching last night)

2) Try antihistamines to rule out allergies.

So that is what we are doing. Hailey just didn't want to be left out of the chaos of trying to get ready for the move.

2 weeks . . . . . .
