Just wanted to let you all know that we're still fine. Cases are rising in Uganda, but still no deaths and we're just crossing the 800 case threshold here, so still relatively low.
Perry's still enjoying hanging out on his bed in my office - though he's developed an ability to tell time - and if I stay at my desk much past 4pm he starts throwing toys and chewies at me and making grumbling sounds
We're also looking at wrapping things up and hope that regular flights open before August when we need to pack up the house and move.
In the meantime, I had a question for everyone -- Perry has been very itchy the last few weeks. The problem - nothing has changed so I am at a loss as to what it might be. Pretty much everything is exactly the same as it's been for the past almost 4 years since he joined our family. He gets the same food (only difference is that I switched breakfast and dinner- now Fromm kibble in the morning and Stella & Chewy freeze dried patties at night because I wanted the stella/chewy patties to soak longer and that's easier to do for dinner) - same variation of flavours as we've been doing for 4 years... nothing new outside - same yard and no sprays or anything in the yard. Same heartworm and flea/ tick meds (no fleas to cause the itching - I've checked him thoroughly). Same probiotic and joint supplement that we've used for years. Same treats.
Same shampoo (exact same because I got a big bottle years ago so am still using the same one) - though I've also switched to an oatmeal one I also had (and did use before with no problem, same one that his groomer in the US uses) after the itching started because I wanted to see if the oatmeal might help.
I've added benadryl - but it's only slightly helping. He's not to a level where he's scratched hair off or irritated it by scratching too much (yet), but he's so itchy in the morning that he barely walks a few steps before he sits down to scratch himself (and I think he can't reach all the spots
Any recommendations on what I can add/ give him? I don't have any confidence in the vets here for this sort of thing - it's not at such a serious level, no hair falling out or anything, so I don't really want to deal with a vet for it right now, so any suggestions on things I could do/ give him would be great. thanks.
