High Maintenance Dog

I love Teddy to pieces, I really, really do. In fact, I tell him all the time that he's the best thing I ever spent money on. But, he's very high maintenance at the moment: he had hot spots he'd scratched to the point where his chest was bleeding and scabby so I took him to the vet. A TON of money later I find out that he has allergies so now I have special dry and wet food for him, an oral steroid to give him twice daily, a topical steroid, a flea preventative because even though he's never had fleas, a small flea bite would be like a huge dog bite to him. I have an anti-yeast medicine where I have to give him three-fourths of a pill once a day, some other medicine to give him twice a day and another one to give him once a day (I'm not even sure what those ones are for anymore.) He now gets Omega-3s daily. He also has ear infections so I have to clean his ears with one thing, and put drops down each one. Oh and did I mention the special shampoo I have to use once a week to help his skin?

To top it all off, as I'm typing this, he just threw up so all the pills he took awhile ago probably came up with it!


  1. So what you really meant to say, my TRIPLET! You no longer have Poor puppy! Once again - you are SUCH an excellent mommy!!!!

  2. Awww.. but he's such a cute little dog. We have a girl one just like him.. Too cute!

  3. OMG I love him!!! He is worth every penny considering he is so handsome!!!

  4. Kelsey, he IS totally worth it. I love him so much - even if he is high maintenance at the moment!
