@weddingbound: God Bless you!! It’s people like you who restore my faith in humanity.
The skin condition – my lab gets it – the vet calls it hot spots so I’m not sure if that’s what Bently has.. Anyway .. I don’t give her antibiotics but I do feed her a grain/ gluten free diet plus I keep her skin dry and her coat clipped on the hot summer. The vet was all ticked when I stopped medicating her the way they wanted but my methods have been way more (100% in fact) effective than theirs were..
Any rate, so glad Bently’s luck has turned around!

@weddingbound: Aww sweet boy! Thank you for fostering, it’s so noble of you, I wish we could.. or honestly, would do it. Maybe I should talk to the hubs about that.

Awww thanks guys for all the positive energy and support….. I love my bees…… You guys rock!
As far as his skin, it’s sort of a trial and error right now. It’s not demodex we do know that. The vet seems to think its a reaction to fleas bc the poor guy was eat up with them at the shelter. He is now on flea prevention and antibiotics to try and clear it up. We will have to see how he responds. He is now on the same food my other dog eats bc we aren’t sure what all he’s had at the shelter or his past life and so far he’s tolerating his food well and we’ve already started seeing slight improvement in his skin in just a few short days!!
He has a respiratory infection as well but that should clear up soon. The heart worm and skin will take more time.
Thanks again bees and say doggie prayers for this guy!

@allyfally: How long did it take to treat the heart worm? I know it depends on how severe it is and can be different in each dog. His isn’t too severe according to the vet. How did your pup do with the treatment?

weddingbound :Aw so sweet! I want to get into fostering, but I have 4 furbabies as it is now! Do you think I could foster? Or would it be too much? I have 2 bullies right now:)

@weddingbound: Well the vet determined that his was pretty far advanced, so the slow method (which only kills the babies) wouldnt do much good. So he got the adulticide kind. He had to stay there for 2 days and was extremely groggy afterwards. He had to stay crate bound for a couple of weeks. He also had two seizures, but the vet said that was common. He’s perfectly healthy now.

oh my goodness that face!!! He is so adorable! And I’m so glad that there are people like you and your husband who help save these guys. I’m all for rescues,and depending on what my upcoming few months look like (finding out soon if I’ll be working on a project), we may get a foster. Both of our dogs are rescues – one is a pure bred pug. Who would be mean to a family of pugs?? (the rescue group took mom, dad, and all the babies from the former owners).
My old dog (a boxer/pit mix) had a few problems when I adopted her. She had red mange and lots of places where fur was missing. I got it to grow back in adn she looked gorgeous. hoping that Bentley starts feeling better soon!!
