Kona's vet visit

Kona went to the vet yesterday. They did some skin scrapings, and didn't find any mites. Then they took some skin biopsies, so hopefully that will show something. It could be anything from extreme zinc deficiency to an autoimmune disorder. The biopsy should give us some information.

The results won't be back for about a week. So, as soon as I hear anything, I will let you know. Mom and dad are REALLY hoping for an answer. There is no way any human, even the usual stoopid ones, can look at that poor dog and NOT think there is something wrong!

I promise to have new pics of me this weekend. Mom finally got the Kodak software working, so I promise new pics!!

I sure hope the vets figure out what is wrong with handsome Kona. I hate that he is going through whatever this turns out to be. Give him a kiss for me!

Poor Kona--he looks so miserable! I hope the vet finds an answer soon. In the meantime, Holly, I hope you're giving him lots of love and affection.

We'll keep our paws crossed that the results are good ones!

Good luck to Kona and to EZ picture sharing! We don't have a program like that. Good thing your humans could figure it out!
