So I'm feeling like a terrible mom to my 3 year old Rottie right now. We were away for the long weekend and low and behold we get a phone call from our trainer who happens to own and opperate the kennel that we take Fry to Saturday afternoon. Apparently when she went to take him out for his morning walk she is greated by a Rottie with a completely swollen and scabbed up nose. Long story short I give her the okay to take him to her vet that afternoon to get checked out. Turns out our precious fur baby is allergic to bug bites (we don't know what bit him so we can't say for sure what he's allergic to). In the two hours he was by himself the poor babe managed to itch his nose raw which caused a bacterial infection. Vet give him antibiotics for the infection, prednisone for swelling and a steriod cream to help with the itching.
We get home on Monday take the poor baby home (he's a drama queen about everything, I call him my 120lb cream puff). He hates the cream which I can't touch because of the steriods and the antibiotics are making him sick to his stomach.
DH and I keep stopping him from itching at his nose and I just feel awful because I have no way of explaining to him why and you can just see how miserable he is right now. I've spent half the day going back and forth with the vet on the phone to try and figure out how to avoid the antibiotics causing Fry to throw up and now DH just called to tell me that skunk got in our backyard and sprayed Fry!

Well at least it's good training for when LO is here....sigh(
