Okay let me begin with this- my dog is a 7 year old APBT/Staffy mix. I am 15 years old, and my dad is one of those people that very rarely takes their dog to the vet.
Since moving from Ohio to Florida, my dog has had excessive thirst, ear infectiobs, dry skin & licks his paws non stop. Yes, it's really sad to see a dog go through this non stop for 5 years especially when there's nothing I can do. It seems to have gotten worse this past year... Well 3 weeks ago my mom bought blue buffalo wilderness, hoping his allergy was to grain... But it hasn't gotten better yet. So I looked it up online and a cause to the paw problem could be a grass allergy.
A FREAKING GRASS ALLERGY. Ohio uses different grasses than Florida...
I told my mom we could get steroids from the vet that he would have to be on for the rest of his life, which my dad defenitely will not want to pay for.
Or we can take a small section of our yard and lay down a different grass which my dad won't want to pay for.
So I have him wearing the cone of shame hoping he will leave his paws alone. And I will have to have him go to the bathroom in the yard of the abandoned house next door because that house has a different type of grass, which is going to be very "fun" at night. -_- Unless he's allergic to that grass too, IM SCREWED. BUT, if someone moves into that house, WTF am I gonna do?? He won't go potty on the street!!
Basically I just want to let it out because I'm so irritated, mostly at my dad for being such an irresponsible dog owner.
I'm not even going to talk about my 14 year old dog that needs to be put to sleep because of his issues.
