Antibiotic Injection



Liesel was very brave receiving an antibiotic injection yesterday afternoon...and she is not having any side effects. This medication should last two weeks...depending on whether the skin infection clears up...a second dose may be required.

Still No Success



The second antibiotic is giving Liesel the barfies too.
Will talk with our vet tomorrow.

Friday, July 24, 2015


Liesel is not tolerating the antibiotics...vomiting any kibble eaten today. I spoke with our vet & was instructed not to feed her until tomorrow morning...a small meal of white rice & soup broth. We've discontinued the medication & will try another that will hopefully not cause tummy woes.

But for now...just a few sips of water. My poor little whiffet....

Not Mosquito Bites!



But a bacterial skin infection! So glad we visited Dr. Condon at the clinic this morning...cause the little crusties are not bites....but rather a skin infection. Cause...unknown...but apparently common.

So, a round of antibiotics twice daily for 10 days & hopefully that will clear things up...never to come back again!!

Mosquito Bites?



This is one of the worst years for mosquitos that we have experienced. Apparently it is due to the amount of water we had from snow run off...perfect breeding ground.

Liesel has quite a few "crusty" scabs on her chest, belly & her inner back leg areas...they don't seem to itch or bother her...but we're going to pop into the vet clinic tomorrow morning & get them checked out. She does love to run in the grass & lawns when we are out on our walks...so not sure if she is getting bitten then or chewed during potty time.

We've had a number of wet, cool rainy days here too...which doesn't help with the bug situation...hopefully we are back into summer next week!

Doxie Wreath

Mama wants to share a pic of her doxie wreath ordered through a vendor at Wienerfest. She has been to the event when it was held in Thamesford, Ontario...someday maybe we will go...put that on our "bucket list"..



And how about that paw print ribbon? Pretty cute..

Oskar says we should order a wreath with a pie-bald...he's just sayin'...
