Finding Relief

I thought I should give an update on Friendie's skin.
This photo was taken this morning.  His neck looks so much better.
His legs looked better....until I gave him the toast he was asking for.  Within a short amount of time he was scratching behind his legs.  Not sure if it is from the dairy in the bread or the wheat at this point.
I am amazed at how quickly his skin flares up....and also how quickly it cleared up when we went 'cold turkey' with the Milk-Free diet.

He is loving the Silk PureAlmond Milk - Dark Chocolate...
at least we found a quick substitute for his 'chocolie chocolie'.

His skin looks so much less angry and sore and weeping. Jolly good work. Dairy and wheat are culprits in a lot of cases. I gave up dairy for a decade or more because it made my joints swell and hurt.

Feel so sorry for the little guy. Must be a challenge to know what to feed him.

What a difference! I've had him on my mind since your last post. It very well could be both wheat and dairy. I'm so glad he found a chocolate milk substitute. :-) Sending lots of good wishes!
