He was actually doing pretty good w/ allergies this year but last night he was itching, scratching, biting, pacing, panting a good part of the night. I thought I was going to be taking him straight to the vet at 7:30 am! I put him outside around 4 am & he fell asleep outside in the 20 min he was out there!! WTH?? I let him in & he did fall asleep for a bit. Then I heard him get up, but he laid back down & at 7am he was sleeping like a baby- he was still sleeping when I left for work! I get home from lunch...he had thrown up at least twice! Once on the bedroom carpet & once on the linoleum in the hallway! In the hallway he had walked through it multiple times, so it was spread all over! So I cleaned carpets & scrubbed floors at lunch. But HE looked like he was feeling much better! After work tonight he slept quite a bit & now he is up & at um! I just fed him a little bit & he gobbled it down, so hopefully it will stay down this time & he SLEEPS good tonight!! I did grab 1 can of an off brand of canned dog food by mistake & I gave that too him last night & today. Maybe that was a mistake. Also I gave him his flea/tick treatment a couple days ago & last month a day or 2 after his flea treatment he got sick. Maybe that has something to do with it too. I dunno, but I hope he gets better & not worse!!!
I'm sorry to hear Buster has had such a tough time. Praying for him, friend. Harlowe & I are sending lots of get well soon ((hugs)) to him & you.

It's so hard to see them sick & not know what is causing it 💛

Does he take allergy meds?

Please keep us posted.

So all you medical specialists, what do you think is wrong with it? Should I go to the doc or just wait it out? You have to know I do not like my doc, but when you have a doc you are not allowed to change because we have such a shortage right now. His diagnoses for most everything wrong with me is , loose weight. Plus, I hate going to the doc, he just might tell me something is actually wrong, and I really do not want to hear that after finally getting a second job!

Praying your knee feels better after some rest!!

There is some work I need to get caught up on, as usual.

Be MERRY!!!
Hope you get plenty of rest tonight!

On top of that, my surgeon looked at a mole on my arm and told me that I am going to need it removed. Precancerous. It's a little scary considering I am only 22!

At least tomorrow is a new day...and Friday at that!



Keeping you in my prayers. Like Snowflake said though, it's better that they caught the mole now.

Hopefully it works out that you can get that and then maybe pick up some extra hours on the floor!!
