Ring Worm Scare

Poor poor Napoleon. My little guy always seems to have problems. Monday night I got real scared becasue he had all these flaky cicular bumps all over his back that had a red spot in the middle. First thing that popped into my mind was RINGWORM! So we looked up info online and it kinda looked like ringworm and had almost the same symptomes (sp?). So I gave hima bath and called the emergency vet. They were no help what so ever. Since ringworm is contagious (sp?) to other animals and humans I didn't want to chance it. So poor nola had to sleep out in the living room. And then my roommate is telling me all kinds of things that were wrong about ringworm like that it comes out the dog's butt and lays eggs and it is in their poop and looks like worms...she was way off but freaked me out good. So tuesday I woke up and decided to take Nola right to the vet.

The results...Allergies. My poor guy. They took a sample to the lab just to double check on the ringworm. So now he is hyped up on antiboitics and steroids. I feel so bad for him.

Good news thou....Nola lost weight!!! He is now 28lbs!!! Better than 32. Owed all to morbiddk for getting on my case about giving him treats. Hopefully he can lose some more by our next visit in July for shots :)
