Itchy Scratchy…:(

Domo hasn’t been well of late, and it’s extremely worrying. 😦 It all started one night when I was cuddling and patting him, when I felt lumps and bumps over an area on his body. I checked and found that his fur at that area was all tangled and clumpy, and he had a lot of black scabs on his skin. I checked other areas of his body thoroughly and found more slightly bloody tiny black scabs. I panicked, and thought it was an attack of the ticks or fleas. I couldn’t sleep well that night and even had nightmares of fleas eating into Domo’s face and body. Yucks. It was horrible.

Early next day, I brought Domo to the vet and thankfully or not, it was not an attack of the ticks or fleas, but a skin infection that Domo was having. Domo apparantly has sensitive skin (like his owner, goodness! >_<) and it could have been his shampoo or dust, or food that brought on the allergy that led to the infection. Sigh…I guess I felt a bit better that it wasn't fleas. The area most badly affected was shaven off and Domo was given antibiotics and creams to make him feel better.

It’s been a couple of days, and the worst affected area is looking a lot better, but new itchy scratchy spots seem to be coming up and certain areas of his body still looks rather inflammed and uncomfortable. Boo!!!! I’m really worried! I hope he gets well soon. 😦
