I'm taking my little Shih Tzu Pebbles to the vet today. The regular wonderful vet is not going to see her, it's the new person and she's not bad, but she doesn't meet the standards I set for myself with customer service. I may have to make a 2nd appointment to see the regular guy.
Does anyone have experience with a dog with chronic skin condition that itches and leaves bumps on the skin, which when popped use black? Truly black like eyeliner or mascara.
I'm hoping this veterinarian today does not just prescribe a medication without being sure of what the disease is. My Beauty, a rescue from similar circumstances of overbreeding and neglect had a skin condition that took 4 months before a veterinarian who was covering for the regular guy did a swab and the lab test showed 2 types of resistant staph. I'm going to be proactive and assertive as I don't want to spend months looking for the answer and giving Pebbles ineffective treatments, which is what happened with Beauty. Big waste of time and money.
