Kandi goes to the Vet.

Kandi just scratches and scratches. She does not have fleas, or anything I can see. She sleeps with me, and keeps me up during the night trying to help her. I'm getting no rest, and I know she is miserable. I asked my daughter to take us to the Vet. I haven't tried to drive my big truck yet. I think I can, but handle her too is a job. The Vet is in Alverado, Texas about 30 miles from here. I used that one when I lived in Cleburne,Texas. I have taken her to one here in Whitney, but I like the other one better. It is a big place, they have an Equine area also. It was full of little puppies,big dogs and poor little fellers that had been hit by a car. Feel so sorry for them, don't know why anyone would let the dog roam free and take a chance of being hit. To my surprise my Vet. was on a walker. Geesh, he was in worse shape than I was, yet still working. I hadn't seen him before, but he was very kind to Kandi, and me. But, he did the same thing the other Vets did, give her a shot in the butt.He thinks she has allergies. Maybe, he's right. This started after we moved here among the Cedar Tress, and grass with thousands of "stickers".Well it did quiet her down, and she had a good nights sleep. Me, however is a different story. At three am I woke up with a stomach virus. I had the alarm set for six, to go to my doctor for the test. Well, that didn't happen. Had to reset for next week. It turned out good, because it has rained all day, and Cherry would have been driving in this mess. So, I won't know anything until next week when I go for the test. I do feel better and stronger every day and think I will be back to driving my big truck by next week!Thanks again to all my readers for wishing me good luck. It does mean a lot to me to have friends checking up on me!


  1. Our little dachshund, Cooper scratches all the time too. Our vet said we could give him a 1/4 of a Benadryl. He doesn't have fleas either, she thinks it is an allergy to grass and pollen falling from trees in the summer. I must agree because he doesn't do it in the winter. It does really help him, I feel sorry for him that he itches so badly. Maybe you could ask your vet about it. Hope she gets to feeling better soon.

    1. Yes, the Vet did say to give her childrens Benadryl several times a day.

  2. Dog allergies are the worst. So hard to determine what the allergens are. I hope she can get some relief & you as well.
