the dreaded green eye boogies!
ugh poor Link. he has puppy acne going on, allergies to his food, loosing teeth, and now conjunctivitis. at least im 90% sure thats what it is. boy was i right when i said "there is no such thing as a 'free' dog". the teeth is normal, i can deal with that. but the smelly "blood breath" i could do without. the puppy acne, normal and we are dealing with it. the food allergy, i can tell you i can not wait to get him off of this food. they had been feeding him purina pro plan and its not good at all for him. (and im not saying this juse because i dont like purina) his hair is a little sparse in places from licking and scratching, his poops arent really good, and his skin/coat could be a lot better. it just stinks, they gave us a 20lb container of food when they dropped him. i dont have the heart to throw the food out while there are starving dogs out there. so he has been eating it and i have been giving Chloe some of it to try to make it go faster (since she never has any issues with food).
but today i wake up and look at him and he has the dreaded green eye boogies. ugh... great. im darn sure its conjunctivitis. his lower lid is a little red and inflamed too. at the moment we are just flushing it a few times a day and seeing where it goes from there. he has an appointment on the 4th at the vet so we will see what happens until then.
arg..... why..... 1 week ive had him and its already starting!
