Pet Friendly Homes in Boca Raton: Dogs and Allergies in Boca Raton FL

Dogs and Allergies in Boca Raton FL

UPDATE:  The results of Buttons skin test came back and she had a double bacterial infection in the skin of her paws which was resistant to many meds.   3 weeks after this phot and double antibiotics, she is like a new dog.  Her fur has grown back and she is no longer licking them! 


This has been a bad allergy season and, more so, if you are close to the ground.  Buttons' allergies have been especially bad this summer.  Despite several visits to the doggy dermatologist, she has not gotten better.  She licked all the fur off her paws from the knees down.  Dogs and allergies in Boca Raton FL


Today we took her sister to the vet for her eye (also allergy related.)  When the vet saw Buttons' paws, she couldn't believe it.  She immediately took charge asking if it was ok to take her off all meds and switch her to a new one.   She certainly wasn't getting any better, so why not. She soaked her paws in an antiseptic soak, dried and then bandaged them.  She came home and went back the following day for more of the same.   When it rains, it pours!


Her paws are definitely better and not as red.  She even let me put medicine on them. The real test will come when we remove the bandages.  I bought infant socks for her to wear outside.  What's a girl to do?  She is a trooper and does pretty well getting around with the bandages, despite being almost 13 years old.  Please keep her in your thoughts that her paws will heal completely.

I feel your pain or should I say I feel Button's pain.... our dog and cats get better health care than we do... and we do not worry about our own ailments if the pets have something wrong with them... hope Buttons will be back to his normal self soon...Endre

Oh sweet little Buttons, I am definitely keeping her in my prayers.  She's lucky to have you as a Mommy loving and taking care of her.  Hugs!
