Meet my Wolfie
Photo of my Wolfie was taken on Sunday walk through the forest. He is only 5 months old, so he gets tired very quickly.
He is a very nice puppy. The cutest thing - he has chosen me as his favourite person from his pack.
Wolfie isn't lucky with health - he has some terrible skin allergies (his belly and legs are in bad rashes). Summary of our 3 months together: 12 visits at the vet, 3x 10 days of antibiotics, 1 x steroids, now daily antihistamines.
We hope it is only food allergy, they are the easiest to handle.
Vet said that the tests for allergy are reliable only when dogs are at 8-12 months old... so we can not test him until now.
We are now buying one of the most expensive foods available:
(only Canadian food is good enough for Mr. Wolfie, he refused English, German and Swiss dog food :)
He is already a bit better. But it was so sad few weeks ago, he had so many side effects from antibiotics that he looked so ill as our previous dog, few months before passing away.
I love Wolfie. But I am really sure that he is the last dog of my life. Too many things can go wrong, too many worries...
