Max has had some itching problem for a bit that wasn’t responding to standard flea treatments so I took him to the vet. The vet was wearing rain boots and I wonder if this is experience or forethought. Max was diagnosed with Mange, which is like finding out that your kid has lice. He insisted it wasn’t something I did wrong but I felt a little responsible even though the red foxes around my house were probably to blame.
The vet put Max on a parasite treatment and gave him a shot of steroids followed by two prescriptions to help with the itching. Max didn’t flinch at the shot. Sometimes our pets are better people that we are.
