Excessive shedding and other things :(
« on: July 22, 2009, 01:31:18 pm »
About 2 weeks ago I noticed my 2 year old Saints (Decker) back legs were shedding a bit. I figured no big deal and brushed him. Well 2 weeks later most of the fur is gone off his back end, as well as his tail. Hes got a thin layer of fur on his back legs...but its not much. I can feel his skin when I pet him.  I'm not sure what is wrong with him. Today he is not drinking (unless I force him) and he wouldn't take treats (not not not normal)  He has an appointment at the vet tomorrow.

 Here is a pic so you can see what I mean...notice all the dog hair on the floor, I can vacuum every day but by the next morning it looks like I didn't touch it in 3 weeks.

When the last fish has been caught and the last tree has been cut down...Only then will man realize that he cannot eat money.
