Hello all! Devi here. So, I ended up at the vet this morning. Why? Well, I have a rash over various parts of my body, and we are trying to figure out what it is.
They took some swabs and samples from where I have the bumps, and they will be examined today to figure out if the rash is due to some sort of infection, either bacterial, yeast, or fungus. The vet doesn't think it is due to a parasite, because we don't go outside and no one else is affected. Similarly, she doesn't think it's ringworm because no one else is affected.
If the swabs all come back negative, then it's probably an allergic reaction to something, which means trying to figure out exactly what I'm allergic to! Most likely would be something food-related, but environmental allergies are also a possibility.
Hopefully they figure out what it is! The rash doesn't appear to bother me - it doesn't hurt when the bumps are touched, and I'm not scratching at them, but it sure doesn't look very nice!
They tried to bribe me at the vet with some treats and Cheez Whiz. I liked the treats, but not the Cheez Whiz (silly Merlin loves the Cheez Whiz). I did step in the Cheez Whiz, though, so here I am cleaning it off of my paw.
We will keep you updated to let you know what's going on! And we will have the results of Dragonheart's birthday contest for you on Thursday!
