Scratching our heads...

I got the results of Dax's blood tests back yesterday. She's perfect. Not fine, not okay, not even iffy. She's absolutely perfect.
So why is her fur falling out? Why is she always freezing? Why did she get snarky with her dog friends at class?
I'm planning to talk to a vet here who's into canine nutrition, holistic stuff, etc. She also does acupuncture, rehab, etc. I took Roc to play on her underwater treadmill when he had an issue this year.
If she doesn't have any suggestions for us, I'm planning to blame it all on Tessa.

Just a quick in and out to see what you have all been up to while I have been out of blogland.

Loved the photos... sorry to hear you were under the weather as well as having computer woes... hope Dax is feeling better soon...

Have a wonderful holiday!

Hmm... Tessa was on the phone the other day, giggling. When I came in the room, she said "e-shay is-shay ere-hay. Ey-bay Ax-Day."

Make of it what you will.

I think the holistic route is a good idea. She can be low normal, and still be showing the symptoms. Tessa is low normal, and she's on a holistic remedy our vet suggested. It has bugleweed, kelp and a few other things in it.

Tessa lost phone and internet privileges...

I agree. Targ was "normal" but was still trying to kill his siblings. (I'm not kidding.. literally trying to kill them.. we almost euthanized him).

The holistic route is definately the way to go.. and of course, I'd still send a sample to Jean Dodds. But then I'm a bit of a Dodds worshiper.

Wow, I hope you find out what can help! We are all for the holistic direction.

Hope you had a great Christmas and have a pawsome New Year!

BTW - Mum's new business Pawsible Marketing, is coming along! More prospects for the New Year too! Did I tell you thank you for that? Well I can say it again, and again, and again.....
