slinky062216_1Slinky will be 6 years old in August (DOB 8/28/2010). He is neutered, up to date on rabies (due 4/4/17), yearly vaccines, and monthly preventatives. He has been having a few skin issues we initially thought were a result of food allergies. We’ve started Slinky on an elimination diet, and so far the only proteins he can have are kangaroo and beef, and the only treats he can have, aside from his approved kibble, are vegetable based treats, sweet potatoes, green beans, and all-beef hotdogs. We also sent bloodwork to see if his skin issues are a result of a thyroid issue. He does need a bath in ketoconazole/chlorhexadine shampoo about every 2 weeks to help with his rashes and itching, which have drastically improved. Slinky does well with people, and likes to chase tennis balls, but cannot go to a home with another dog or a home with cats, as he doesn’t get along with other dogs, and has a prey drive with cats.  Contact 6/22/16
