Thanks Norma & Shay Charlie is soooooooooo playful now and actually wants to go for walks and huffs when I bring him home
It does make me wonder just how much of his discomfort has been related to his allergies & now that the treatment for them has finally kicked in, he's showing his true self. I've also clipped all of his coat off (except his ears and tail of course) as he was pulling his fur out around the blisters - he's stopped that now too
Maxx also has SM but he copes really well, bless him. He is on 20mg Frusemide and 1ml dilute Tagamet a day. Since Charlie wants to play, Maxx has now started to play with him and they now spend their resting time snuggled up in one bed together - something I never thought would happen!!!!
Norma, how's your delicious Arne? He's such a handsome boy - possibly THE most handsome B&T I've ever seen
