  1. Celebrating - no more demodex!

    Herman had his final visit on Friday for demodex mange and he is still negative! The vet was so proud of him and so am I He did it! He lasted over a month on his medication (well of course, nightly treats of peanut butter, pumpkin, cream cheese and apple sauce to feed him his meds), took it stress-free and easy (ppffftt!) and really fought off those little buggers

  2. Is the demodex gone???

    Herman just came back from the vet, and she said she didnt "see anything" when she did his scrape. Hallelujah! We're going back in 2 more weeks to get another scraping.

But we didnt make it. I'm sure it was a madhouse there yesterday. What's cool about that particular location is that the owners have an English Bulldog! I was hoping she'd be there.

    I'm looking forward to taking him there in the future to see what type of goodies they have.

    I'll stay ...
