MANUEL - SA treatment, MANUEL-development

No skin-specialst

So I did exactly what I advice others not to do. I went to a non-specialist, a vet who isn’t a dermatologist .
I guess I wanted it to be mite so when I was told by the receptionist that “our” veterinarian didn’t have any free appointments for two weeks I wanted to believe this was something a general vet would handle, especially since we had flees at the doggy day-care just a few weeks ago.

I feel really really embarrassed since she found that the tail was very dry and flaky too. When we checked the ears, they where very very dry.

I hadn’t noticed.

Usually I have control of any/every change connected to Manuel. What can I say? He still had a thick beautiful fur on his tail. His head wasn’t fully coated but that was just normal according to how his coat grows after the summer.

When the vet tried to clean one spot of the tail, the hair came off. It was only glued to the tail by dried skin-flakes and plasma. Then she scraped for mite – I thought, but it so happened she did not want to scrape that much since the skin was in a bad state (?!).

So WHAT did I pay for?  Well I guess I paid for getting  a new appointment the next week to the correct vet and for a useless prescription for antibiotics which I never collected.

Niklas, our vet is very experienced within the skin- and Akita-area. He was very much involved, when Kumi  she got her allergy diagnosis. He has a lot of patience both with Akitas and their humans. I always have a lot of questions and thoughts – he has no problem with that.

The areas that now were naked and irritated I “treated” with Laktacort (cortisone ointment with antibacterial agent) and the dry areas with oil.
