I thought I would give you all who are interested and have been following along since YouTube an update on how our little furry puppies Sarah and Toby are doing. For those of you who aren’t familiar with our newest family additions, let me introduce you.
Here is Toby
Toby is now five months old. I really need an updated photo of him because he’s gotten much bigger than this.
This Toby’s biological sister Sarah.
Sarah is also five months old and again, I need to take an updated photo of her as she has grown also.
They had a doctor visit this week so Toby could receive his last booster shot and Sarah was kind of penciled in. We noticed on Sarah over the weekend that she was scratching terribly just at the base of her tail on her back. I ran my fingers down into her fur and felt something like scabs. We then shaved the area and saw that’s exactly what it was but we didn’t know what was causing it so we took her in with Toby.
Turns out our little Sarah who we rescued from the disgusting, filthy conditions she was living in has a skin staff infection which she has probably had since we grabbed her a month ago but because her hair is so wiry and black we never noticed it.
Toby this darling boy who can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble yet (ah, puppy hood) also gave himself a slight skin staff infection on his belly where he was neutered last week because he wouldn’t stop licking it. Both Sarah and Toby are on antibiotics and it should clear up soon with the help of the oatmeal and Aloe baths we’ve been giving them.
As for the rest, they are both, besides the slight skin infections in very good health. Growing like weeds. Toby weighed in before he was neutered two weeks ago at 22 pounds and he is now weighing in at a whopping 38.9 pounds!
Sarah my sweet little girl weighed in at her last vet visit the week before at 18.2 pounds has now weighed in at 25.7 pounds!
So they are both growing like weeds, healthy and thriving..As a pet parent you can’t ask for more than that!.
