The Great Bare Spot Saga Continues

Chuck: "Stop trying to take photos of my starfish!"

Chucky's March 18th visit to the veterinarian resulted in his tailio being shaved a little bit so they could take his blood pressure.  Then he developed a sore on that spot, which he licked and messed with until The Hubby shaved all of the way around his tail to affix bandages.

Poor Chuck still has The Great Bare Spot!  Neighbors have even stopped me, to ask 'what is wrong with Chuck's tail?'  Oh, the humanity, and the embarrassment! Not mine...Chuck's!

Our next vet visit is Tuesday, August 1, and the vet can see with her own eyes that Chuck's tail fur is lagging behind.  I actually try to rub the area, thinking that some blood flow might help, but Chuck isn't a bit fan of that action.  He would prefer if we just leave his dang-ol' tailio alone and find something else to do with our time.

  7. Oh Chuck, I hate that for you and of course you don't want the spot rubbed. Insult to injury, right?

  11. Oh no, Chuck! We hope that little tailio is back to normal soon.

  12. Whoa! Maybe your fur is like certain woofies who can't grow more hair. Perhaps he need a toupee or a hairshirt.

  13. Poor Chuck. I hope his tail fur grows back before the cold weather comes.

  14. Poor Chuck. We hope his tailio fur grows soon - raw egg is something that we have heard helps thick, glossy fur condition but we don't know if it helps growth. Sampo loves it.
