You read that right: it is Wendell Wednesday again!
A couple years ago Wendell got sick. His hair began to fall out, he scratched constantly, and no one could tell us what was wrong. We tried everything natural we could think of and yet he continued to suffer. So we took him to vets and tried what they recommended. Some things would help, but eventually the itch always returned. Then after we moved, we got a new vet and he couldn’t figure it out either, though he had an idea. Maybe it was scabies. Apparently, these little jerks can bury themselves deep in the skin so that they are really difficult to detect in skin scrapes (of which we have done several). This diagnosis has not been confirmed, but that is what we’re treating him for and, by golly, Wendell is doing really well and we wanted to share! It has been a hard couple years for our beloved pup, and it just feels really good to have him back. So, Wendell Wednesday, indeed!
