October 17, 2017 – The vet was pleased with Pogo’s progress in terms of his skin. We will continue his course of antibiotics for another few weeks and reassess. We will also continue his daily cleaning of his folds – this will be an ongoing maintenance issue. His ear cleaning and medicated baths will be reduced to 1-2 times per week. While at the vet, they took blood and expressed his anal glands. Next steps will include dental surgery, trialing an anti-inflammatory for his hind leg, and possibly starting a hypoallergenic diet. Pogo is taking it all in stride and was quite pleased with himself today. Come and meet Pogo this Sunday, October 22 at the Howl.O.Ween Pawty at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre in Ottawa from 12 to 330PM.
October 1, 2017 – Pogo has settled well here. I have been soaking his food which he enjoys and his appetite has been good. Only one accident in the house, so I’d say house training is good. Pogo was at the vet on Tuesday September 26 and we are starting the following regime with a plan to reassess on October 11:
– Twice daily oral antibiotics
– Daily ear drop
-Daily cleaning of folds, toes & groin with antibiotic gel
– Three times weekly medicated bath
– Ear cleaning every two days
Pogo is very friendly and enjoys other pets. He does like having his crate for a little downtime.
September 24, 2017 – Pogo came in yesterday. He was surrendered by his owner. Pogo is 13 1/2 years old and he is neutered. His skin is in very bad shape with hot spots and scabs all over his body. Despite his condition, Pogo is a real sweetheart. He gets along well with other dogs and he’s the sweetest boy. Upon his arrival, he had a nice bath and we were able to cut his nails without any fuss from Mr. Pogo. Pogo is going to the vet this coming Tuesday for a complete check up and blood work. Stay tuned for more on this exquisite furry boy.
