Sam’s Allergies


It’s nice to see Sam resting like this.  He has suffered from various skin allergies since birth.  The last two or three years have been the worst.  He would startle awake by something causing him to itch and start scratching or licking to make it stop.  His vet said there was nothing that could be done.  The answer to Sam’s stress was really quite simple.  Find a new vet.  Sam has three issues now that he’s getting older.  The skin allergies being one, but now he’s also developing cataracts, and, according to the last vet, is developing cancer.  The new vet says he finds no evidence of Sam having cancer and the developing cataracts may have something to do with his skin infection.  That’s right, skin infection, not allergies.  He gave Sam some antibiotics to treat the skin infection and now he rests comfortably – no more licking or scratching.
