That's a HUGE improvement!

The diet with the antibiotics, so glad you found something that is making the difference!

Wow, that is unbelievable! thumbup

Kailor had a similar transformation but it took months of raw plus Chinese herbs and weekly baths. I can't believe how quickly Mason has changed.

Let's just start off by saying that it has been nice not having to visit this thread so much!! smile

Mason continues to do well on his raw diet. His itchiness has been reduced soooooooooo much, I never thought it would be possible. His excess shedding has also decreased and his coat is continuing to do good....no more dry itchy skin!!

His 3 week course of antibiotics has been completed, his medicated baths every 3 days are done and his skin and fur are looking great.

Pollen levels have been very high here lately, and I think he is doing great considering...


Here he is now (#3)....(#1- before raw, #2- 3wks on raw, #3- taken today)




So, how do you think he looks??!

Let's hope everything continues down this path!

Just wanted to stop by here and update!

Mason is doing well and looks great! No more intense itching, even after being outside all day in the grass. His fur is soft and silky. I have been giving him frequent baths too. It's really nice because his ears are completely healed and look perfect and the spots on his elbows where he had a tendency to itch open when he got itchy, are all healed over and look nice. The little thin haired spots on his back legs that I thought would never fill in, have filled in and I notice that he is getting darker in ceratin places.
Although he doesn't always eat every meal, especially when its really hot out, I believe he is enjoying being on raw and it has helped him cover leaps and bounds! smile

Here is a picture of him from today!




I think he looks good...what about you?
