I don't have any experience with SA, but I do know poodles get it and that it's a lifelong issue. I believe their are some Yahoo groups that have SA experts in them, if it turns out to be SA you might want to check that out. I really hope it's not that.

I think you are doing such a great job taking care of Sawyer - he's so lucky to have you!

I hope it's not SA, but I know you'll deal with it if it is.

Don't let it get you down - try to enjoy your Christmas with your family (of course that includes the furry variety!).

ps. Love the antlers pic! Though I'm biased - look at my avatar!!!

He got his biopsy done today. Good grief! It cost $560!!!
They did 5...one on the top of his head, one between his shoulders, one on his back, his flank, and groin region.
I'm glad that they're testing for everything now. I was worried it would only be for the SA and thought that would be a giant waste if it wasn't what he had.
Anyone know how long results take?
He already scratched a stitch open, I felt so bad and now he's stuck wearing booties so he can't scratch them anymore
I'm so glad the vets tried to save his bell bottoms I now have to completely shave him with like a 7 to sort of even it out, but he can keep his poofs He looks SOOO pathetic haha
1st pic looks sortra normal right? Then the side view....
JUST when he was growing a nice poof :( lol

I know what you mean, vet bills are shocking. I was pleasantly surprised that when I got Maddy spayed; for the exam, testing, surgery, anaesthetic, pain meds, innoculations, cone and even nail clipping it only cost $200. So I thought, yay! Prices must've come down by a lot! But then when I took Maddy in again because I thought she had a mouth infection (which she didn't), for that exam, Indy's innoculations, the allergy shot and de-worming it cost me $290! Prices are so weird. Anyway, poor Sawyer, that's a lot of biopsies. But I'm glad they're checking for all kinds of things.

wow, they really took some chunks (or at least shaved a lot of hair). Bonnie was tested for SA (for ofa) and they took two little pieces and didn't shave (very minor). It sounds/looks like they are testing Sawyer for much more than SA, which would explain all the biopsy sites and the cost. I hope they figure it out!!

Good news! Boss is letting me take him to work tomorrow so I can keep an eye on him so he doesn't take out his stitches
Right now his head is so itchy and I feel so bad, there's nothing I can do but stop him from scratching and seeing him totally uncomfortable :(
