So good to hear things are clearing up. Seems like a lot of dogs with white base coats also tend toward skin problems.

Thanks Kathy and jesse girl. There’s so much good stuff there. One thing though on the ideal blood glucose range... the shape of the curve doesn’t matter. You just want to have your dog in that range for most of the day Sounds easy, but it takes time and patience to get there and to keep them there.

Well, Lily’s crusty bacterial skin infection has returned, along with a bacterial ear infection The dermatologist treated her prior infections topically, so this time around, she is also getting antibiotics. She goes back in 2 weeks for a recheck.

Looking at her here, you’d think she was fine. But the skin infection is on her abdomen and chest.
