Hello everyone! I planned on updating sooner today, but I was soooo tired… Because I did not sleep much at all last night. Maybe two hours and those not in one go either. I got up this morning with dark circles and red eyes 😅
Our appointment was sheduled for 11am, but an emergency came in before us, so we had to wait a bit longer. I took a short walk with Murli, because she doesn’t like when she has to wait somewhere, without anything happening. She is much happier when I walk around with her. Thankfully it did not rain today! Instead it was sunny, even though a cold wind was blowing.
When we went back into the Vet office, we didn’t have to wait long anymore. All in all, it wasn’t even 30 minutes that we had to wait.
After we got called in, the Vet (a very kind female Vet) looked at Murlis skin problem, which is right before the ears and on the outside of the ears. Typical parasites have been ruled out, and it doesn’t look anything like it either. Her ears on the inside are wonderfully healthy and astonishingly clean. The rest of her skin is fine. No itchiness or anywhere else.
It’s atopic dermatitis, caused by something her body is reacting too. Food is often the cause of it, but in our case it’s not very likely, as the dermatitis doesn’t seem to react to any change. The answer must lie somewhere in the fact that it doesn’t appear very often. The first time was in 2014, in April. The second time, is now. It appears quite suddenly and I will instantly notice, because Murli starts scratching heavily the area before her ears. Also, Murlis case is very mild. The treatment with the medicine, the coconut oil and the “Käsepappel Tee” (=Malvae folium) things are going to be fine. Both, the coconut oil (totally organic and edible) and the Malvae folium tea, I already have at home, because I use it for myself too. But I have to try and figure out what could possibly cause the allergic reaction.
Murli also got the usual check up and her vaccination shots.
I’m so glad we have this Vet, it’s truly the kindest Vet I have been to, like ever. But, we were both happy to be on our way home again. Murli because she was done, and I because she is fine.
The first thing I did after getting home, after letting Murli jump out of her buggy of course, was to get on with cooking her most favorite food in the world: Cooked chicken breast. And while that was cooking slowly, there were cuddles and comforting and treats for Murli.
After she ate, she went right to sleep. Murli is tired of course. She always is after the vaccination shots.
I’m very very tired myself and despite all the stuff I’d like to do, like talking with all our dear furpals and humanpals on twitter and here, I have to go lay down. But here are a couple more photos from today:
Thank you all for reading! Sorry for the late update. Hope you all have a wonderful day and a comfy warm night 💕
