    Oreo was just itching so bad and shaking his head
    going nuts and woke me up Tuesday night ,He was about to cut his throat.I took him to the vet.(I had been trying to get an app.with Ali to get his hair cut but I still can't get him in until next Thurs.)
    The vet saids he has allergies and he had earmites.He gave him a shot for the itching and a shot for his neck where he has scratched it and something for the mites.He has been so mad at me and not feeling well either.He and Cheyenne has an early walk and he seems better and nots so mad at me.

    Glenda, Benadryl will help him with the itchy alergies the same way it does for humans. Buy it at Dollar General or Walmart, the Vet will give you the same thing but charge more. We put one in a marshmallow and give them to Rambo.

    Aww, poor li'l Oreo.
    Glad the vet could help him to feel more comfortable, Glenda.
    I know your heart is easier, it's so hard to see our furkids feeling bad.

    Sorry to hear that Oreo hasn't been feeling too good Glenda. I hope the treatment the vet gave him has sorted out his problems.

    Thanks everyone. He is still drooping around a little but I think its now just a temper fit.He sleeps with me but at the foot with his back to me.Breaks my heart for him to be mad at
    me.

    Just pick him up and give him a big hug and tell him it was for his own good and stop being mad. Dooley

    Poor Oreo, I imagine he was quite uncomfortable with all those earmites. He wasn't mad at you Glenda. Will you post a pic of the newly-groomed Oreo next week?
