Hi everyone,

Sorry we have not made an updated  for a while we are in the middle of moving to Ontario. Chaos has been doing great, other then the fact it seems like he is a little more antisocial lately. He use to lay on the couch with us and just hang out with the family but now he is always going into his room by himself. While he is in there he is giving himself hot spots, he licks himself until his skin is raw. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to kick this habit?

But other then that he is doing great. We understand that it is just reality that this cancer will take over someday but we are very happy with our decision and he will live a longer, happier life. We just bought a house in Ontario that has No stairs and a huge fenced in backyard so that will make him very happy. Where we live now there’s no back yard and about 27 stairs to get in the house.  Thank you for caring about how our big guy is doing. We will post some pictures very soon.

Lots Of Love Chaos’s Family

    Hotspots… well we used to use a product called HB101 for hotspots, (it contains hydrocortisone and Burrow’s solution). I worked as a vet tech for many years… then I decided to make my own homemade similar (and much cheaper) product.

    I buy a bottle of hydrocortisone spray (usually 0.5 or 1%) in the pet store or human pharmacy… then I put it in a spray bottle and add witch hazel (a 1:3 or 1:4 mixture). I spray it on all the hot spots at least twice daily. It works awsomely! My other dog Wolfie, gets them from time to time. Witch hazel works similarly to the Burrow’s solution… which is used in animala and humans to treat weaping wounds.

    If Chaos is licking while you are treating the hot spots, then you’ll definitely have to put an E-collar on him to prevent him from doing more damage.

    Good luck with the hot spots… and congratulations on your new ‘tripawd-friendly’ home!!

    Keep us posted on Chaos!
