Mika's vet visit

Mika had a routine veterinary exam today. This was a new vet's office, the one where we took Wall-e when we first got him. We really like this vet because she specializes in holistic practices. We discussed some things with the vet, including possible allergies (Mika has been licking her paw for the past week and a half). The vet thinks that Mika might be allergic to ragweed and/or other things in the environment...her symptoms aren't too bad, though, and the itchiness on her paw seems to have been decreasing, so she doesn't need treatment. Anyway, we aren't sure if it's really allergies -- it could be some kind of infection, or something else. I don't want to treat something if I don't know what it is.

We bought some digestive enzymes too (in a powder format) for adding to their meals.Then
she got her heart worm test -- negative, that's always a relief!



  1. When it gets real dry and dusty here Dad washes our paws. Something about upset stomachs, eating grass and cleaning up grass balls.

  2. Glad the heartwork test was negative, that sound such a scary thing!

  3. It's great to know that Mika is fine after her vet visit! Love your black and white photos too!

    Leaving soon for the nationals? Good luck! We'll be thinking about you and looking forward to hearing all about it!

  4. We love our holistic vet, they can be every so helpful in finding things and treating with safer practices. We take digestive enzymes too! Thanks for stopping by Raise A Green Dog!
