thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. I will let you know asap about the results - they didn't tell me how long it would take to get the results and he did take extra samples in case its negative for SA so that he could find out what is going on.

So sorry to hear Teddy is vomiting. I think it best to call the vet to consult with him. I hope you can get in touch with him soon! Feel better, Teddy!

Poor Teddy. I will remain praying for him and you. I sure hope the test results come back negative. I hope he is feeling better now. I can be of no help about the procedure. Did you talk to Anita? Interested to hear her thoughts.

I'm so sorry that Teddy isn't feeling too well. I'm hopeful the biopsy will return negative. We had a dog with SA many years ago, a couple of them actually. It's certainly nothing fatal. However, it is a good idea to consult with a groomer to create a solid plan of action for keeping the dog's pores clear and exfoliating the skin often if by some chance Teddy is diagnosed with SA.

We had a black spoo named Francesca who had a pretty bad case of SA. I will tell you that one of the best forms of treatment is to wash the dog with a hypoallergenic shampoo first, dry them off, and then rub/massage the dog down with a good oil, then let the oil seep into the dog's skin, exfoliate the dog's skin with your hands, and then finally wash the dog with a good dishwashing liquid like Dawn. We found this helped a lot and that her hair would grow back. You'd want to do this every two weeks if you can. In terms of oils, you can use Kerry lotion oil or a good oil like Avon oil that can help exfoliate the skin. This type of treatment was certainly effective for Francesca. Again, it also depends on how severe the SA is. Fresca had a pretty severe case. Before this treatment, her head was almost completely bald and she had patches of hair missing from her legs as well. The treatment grew almost all of the hair back.

However, I'll keep my fingers crossed that Teddy is just fine. I just wanted to try and put your mind at ease that SA can be managed without a big fuss.

that sounds like a good treatment - the problem is that I can't physically bathe him that often - I have a very bad back - I can't afford to take him to the groomer either that often - I just don't know what i am going to do if he has SA - I tried walking the two of them yesterday and I suffered for it later and today - he has so much energy that he can't help pulling me evenwhen he is in heel - I just can't walk very fast! lol I don't suppose the couple who are interested in him will take him if he has SA and that puts me back to where I was with him needing more exercise. Anita said they would not be able to rehome him if he has SA. I just wish I could still do a good brisk walk for a mile like I used to! Its so hard being limited this way! Oh I am whining now - sorry! I will jsut have to believe that it will all work out

Pamela: I so wish things were easier for you! Please just be careful not to injure yourself while trying to exercise Teddy. Depending on what the test results reveal, we can focus on other alternatives. Yes, it could prove tough to re-home a poodle with SA poodle--some rescues won't as a matter of policy, but I also hear some will, though it could take a long time. Once again I ask you to try not to despair, hard as it is! I remain convinced there's enough good will and inventiveness here to somehow help you and Teddy. I'm so very sorry for the difficult time you're having. I wish I lived nearby so I could help you more! Thinking of you and hoping for the best.

Is there a possibility you could create a run area or exercise area for him where you could just let him loose with his energy?

Thanks for the encouragement - my son put a bag of salt on my porch with a cup to put on the ice on steps and Teddy got into and ripped it up now the salt is all over - I swept it up and tried to put a baby gate across that area - lets see if he manages to get that over too! lol he is so high energy!!!!
