Another happy face on this rainy wednesday 🥰
Ok, so...confession time. I've been feeling so bad for Jarv, and really blamed myself for it. I should've noticed it earlier, I should've pushed it with my vet some more to see if we found the source then already.
It all started this somewhere between mid/late summer. I felt some small bumps when I was petting Jarv. It wasn't bothering him, but it bothered me that it was there😂 We showed it to the vet, and she wasn't concerned either. So...all ok, right? In about 4 weeks time I became more worried. He got more bumps, and was clearly itchy. Even if I just moved my fingers through his coat, he twitched his skin. He began getting a lot of skin flakes, and to top it all off his coat reacted with giving me a "big summer blowout". I tried finding the cause. Was it weather related? Just bad shedding? Food? All of a sudden I saw it...a flea🤦🏼♀️
One. Damn. Flea.
But where there's one, there's more. They weren't all on him (I've seen two at most, and no poop), but they were in our envoirement. We've been fighting the fleas ever since I discovered them, and some weeks late finally feel like we're getting somewhere. The itch is gone, the skin flakes are almost gone too. I changed my flea treatment tactic and gave a new dose sooner than I'd usually do. He is getting fish mix premade raw now, and a spray to hydrate the skin to help it heal again.
It's working, but man...I've never felt so bad before towards my pets. I never thought of fleas at the start, and because of that it was able to escalate😩
