    Default Vegas hates me!

    Over the last 48 hours, he did not get an allergy shot so he is itchy, he did get an internal anal gland expression ,

    He was doped up from the allergy pill, got his face, feet and butt scrubbed with the new yeast medication that he hated, got his ears flushed then got antibiotic ear drops, then last but not least his new lubricating eye drops.

    It is official, he just sits in his crate stoned out of his mind on this new medication trying to wish me dead!! He will not even come to me when I call him, he just sits there (When he is awake) and stares at me. (I can't blame him, every time he comes out it is something else done to him)

    When he does come out of his crate he runs from me. It makes me want to :crying: I am suppose to give him this pill 3x a day, I only gave him one yesterday and that is all I will be giving him today to help with his itchys.

    I am going to make him hate me even more because in a little bit we are going bye-bye to get his nails dremeled, I have one bully!!

    Did you get an appointment with a different vet? I think that's what he needs.

    poor Vegas and mama! Have you considered a different vet? I know this one is new to you and maybe she just isn't right. It's terrible that he is so itchy and also that he is so drugged up. That is not a way to go through life. I read your last post about why she doesn't want to give him allergy shots anymore ,but at a certain point I think it's worth considering quality of life vs. quantity. Maybe once he adjusts to the new meds they won't make him so loopy and he will be back to loving his mama. Good luck.
    If tears could build a staircase and happy memories a lane, I could walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again!

    Everytime I do something to VegasR or O that requires touching them for reasons other that to dish out love..they get a treat. They get the treat after the "mean touching" is done. Yesterday, Vegas got ear drops. As soon as I was done (daddy held him down) he jumped up and ran for the treat jar. Orion gets her eye drops twice daily. We give them right before breakfast and dinner. So her reward is still food. Same with the nails or the vet. When O was in the vet with the eye ulcer, it cracked me up. They would touch her to take her temp. As soon as they were done..she turned to me. Luckily I had treats in my pocket. Same with the eye exam. As soon as the Dr moved away to get something, she would turn to me. I did forget once. Oh man, she was not happy. Dr. Larsen did have treats, but they weren't 'good' ones. I feed the low calorie Charlie Bear treats.

    Hugs to VegasB.
    And to you.

    yuo are just doing what he needs or should I say what you can for him for now. I would call and explain to the new vet and maybe they could work him in sooner? Hugs to you it will be okay! You are a wonderful mommy so don't ever doubt that!!!

    @LariP, yes he goes next Friday to a new vet, I could not get him in any sooner. It is a brand new Small animal hospital.
    @Libra926, Vegas runs like a bolt of lightning to the kitchen for his treat when I have done something unusual to him, so he is rewarded with treats when I have to do all this.
    @Dieselbaby, My retired vet was her vet, so the both of us are in search of a new vet, I told her about the one I found and she told me about one that is an EB expert. We are both looking together since we live so close. We both loved our retired vet. He was old fashioned but he got the job done and was excellent with Vegas.

    He will forgive you soon. I can' wait until you see another vet. I have interviewed and gone through 5 since I have had Abby. Finally found a good one. Believe it or not the 5 I went through had different opinions on Eye surgery, Hip surgery, allergy shots etc....I got so fed up, I just went by what I knew helped and how Abby was doing. Like I said before, never had the eye surgery and just now is having drops for dry eye. Never had the hip surgery and until she got old, did what she wanted to. Allery shots are rare since I figured out what she was allergic to.

    maybe getting him a treat and the pill in some food. Once he does come out, lay on the floor and love on him. He just wants lovin for now.

    Always with me

    i was wondering if you could try a new allergy med for the itching like zyrtec or benadryl. sarah could not tolerate the hydroxyzine either the vet gave us. i give her zyrtec mostly now. she does well on it doesnt drug her up. sarah had the exact opposite problem on it. she would hump me for hours afterwardneedless to say i changed allergy meds. sarah also gives me the stink eye when i have to do her regimen for her yeast but she gets over it. hang in there it will get better.

    Poor you ... I have the same thing with my foster bully, Tinkerbell. She is on 3 different eye meds and two for her ears. She runs into her cage and sits right at the back as far away from me as possible.

    I have found a wonderful way of stopping this, and now Tinkerbell doesn't "hate" me anymore.

    I get my daughter to do it all!!!

    What is the dose of hydroxyzine? Lucy is 55 lbs and gets 60 MG twice a day and only gets it 3 times a day on really bad days. (which is rare) Lucy never gets groggy. That med may not be working for him. Poor baby. Wish I could give more info to help.
