Pupdate: February 8, 2014

Asher¬†is starting to grow fur! He’s been scratching himself up a good bit because it’s itchy where it regrows, but hair is slowly starting to fill in all those bald spots. He’s also made his first¬†moves to get up on our furniture with the other dogs after over 5 months with us. His new mom has confirmed that he’ll be allowed on her furniture, so thankfully I don’t need to make him stop. Until this week, I was pretty sure she was going to have to take him to a specialist to get him all fixed up, but with all the new hair I’m suddenly seeing, I think he’s going to do fine on the restricted ingredient diet. It’s taken a long time to get all of those irritating proteins out of his system, but I’m so relieved it’s finally starting to work.

This was previously almost bald and really icky. Look at all that fur!

I feel really bad not giving him treats and all the stuff our dogs get, but we’ve worked out how to mostly hide it from him.
I did switch our dogs to an OTC Fish and Sweet Potato food while we have Asher just in case he gets a few pieces, and since we have had a few food incidents, I’m glad I did.
