Morning Everyone..

It's another HOT HOT HOT day here in Southwest Florida, we have been in the 90's for the last few weeks and looks like there is no end in sight, I guess a repeat of last year's unusually high temps running thru the entire spring, summer, fall seasons until we dropped to sweatshirt weather for winter. Mother Nature has been readjusting her priorities I guess.

Well just a comment along with a question as well as an update on Miss Ziva's growth.

First of all, I took her to see her vet this week. She has had some little bumps on her head and the top fold of her ears on and off and mostly on of late. Initially I thought they were mosquito bites but have now changed my mind. They are not open or oozing or seeping in anyway... they don't seem to bother her at all.... if I kinda scratch at one it usually will shed a very thing little layer of dried skin with the hair attached (the hair does grow back). The vet took a look and still wasn't 100% sure but felt it could be some bacterial infection & wrote a prescription out and told me to take it to our local Publix Grocery Store and they would fill it for free, which they
did! It was for an antibiotic for bacterial infections. So just wondering if any one else out there has seen this on their V's.

Also in her growth update, she will be a year old on June 26th, she is 48 pounds and apprx. 22 1/2 inches at the shoulders. The vet said she was in perfect health, her coat shines like it's been waxed and is very soft, her eyes are bright and clear and she is very toned and muscled.

So there you have it, my comment, question and update. Hope everyone has a great fun filled weekend with their V's.

I emailed Ziva's breeder today and she hadn't seen what I was describing to her on any of her V's in the past (although she did say they are prone to get cankers on the ends of their ears to which she recommended something called Animax available from your vet) She did say though most of the V owners she knows uses human Selsun Blue Medicated shampoo 2 to 3 times per week for a couple weeks and that usually clears up any skin issues. So I have the anitbiotic from the vet for bacterial infections and I stopped this afternoon and bought a bottle of Selsun Blue... so hopefully we can clear up the bump issue one way or another.... I would much rather be able to deal with it with the shampoo rather than having to give her meds..... for sure.
