The sores on my nose started looking bad again and I started to lose pigment on one spot of my nose so I went to a new vet on Friday that treats a lot of autoimmune diseases, especially Lupus.
I liked this vet office. It smelled nice and they have the best treats ever! LIVER TREATS!!!!!!!
The new vet said there was no need to cut off part of my nose since it was obvious what I have. The vet also told my people that this disease will have good periods and bad periods so what we are seeing is normal.
She said I should be getting Vitamin E, an antioxidant, an immune support powder, and a Chinese herb in my food.
She also said they should use Vitamin E and aloe vera on my nose to help it. And I'm supposed to wear a sunscreen on my nose if I'll be out in the sun.
She also wants my raw diet changed to turkey, chicken, duck, rabbit, and fish but my woman is reluctant to do that. The vet said my blood is too hot and I need cooling and neutral foods.
I don't like rabbit much and this diet would need a lot of vitamins, minerals, and other crap added to it so my woman started looking for other cooling meats. What she found out is very few sources agree on what meats are considered what.
So we're waiting on changing the diet until we see how all the other stuff works.
She said my woman should start using the essential oil blend on me that helps with immune support again.
She said the oil blend for non-healing wounds and the blend for skin issues my woman has been using on my nose were good and to keep using them.
She liked oil blend I get for my joint issues and the one for stress.
My woman was happy that the oil blends were approved because they really help me. The only thing my woman doesn't like about the oils is the customer service - I can't repeat what she says about that because she uses a lot of words that aren't very nice whenever she tries to get information from them.
I started the antioxidant and immune support powder Friday and had an application of the immune support oil blend. My woman also found a Vitamin E that uses sunflowers instead of soy so she ordered that for me.
Saturday we went to a garden center and bought 3 huge orange balls that I picked out --- oh... the millions of orange balls they had, I was so excited I was crying --- and an aloe vera plant. I haven't been able to play with the balls I picked out yet, my people call them "pumpkins."
Sunday the mail truck delivered my Vitamin E and the mail man said I could go in his truck with him! So I started getting Vitamin E to eat on Sunday.
We are still waiting for the herb to come in at the vet office.
Monday my man went back to work for the 1st time since the last week of July. I wasn't happy about that.
Then I scraped my nose on a torn up ball I have and it took about an hour for the bleeding to stop completely. I didn't bleed a lot but my woman had blood all over her hands and on her pants by the time it was done. She told me it would have stopped much quicker if I would have stopped licking my nose.
I was licking my nose because it had blood on it and I don't like to smell like blood. Then she put a stinky, icky tasting oil on my nose to help stop the bleeding. So I had to try to lick that off which would make my nose bleed in 1 spot though it was just kind of oozing after the stop bleeding oil was put on.
