So as stated in my update reply for sleeping patterns, our vet said that if we want to get Toby MRI'd to see if he has CM/SM then she is all for us going. I honestly don't know if what I see in Toby is normal puppy stuff or something more. What I see has been happening for awhile. I have been taking the watch and see approach.
He does scratch in all areas but not bad enough to lose hair or get red spots or sores, it also only last a few seconds or so. He does bite himself usually the back legs but not all the time, he does lick himself, other people, clothes, carpet etc.. He does butt scoot but not everyday and the Dr said his anal glands feel ok. She said its probably that his butt hair is bothering him, its growing but still very short.
So that is the list for now. I also thought of allergies for these things but have not spoken to her yet about that. He is on Taste of the wild dog food which is grain free and we mainly feed ZiwiPeak jerky snacks for treats. But with all of this it is different meat sources.
He is on flea meds (comfortis) but only been on it one month. I do worry about bug bites but I don't see any bumps or sores.
Anyway, I don't know what the first steps are in getting Toby checked for CM/SM. I don't know if he is too young to even be thinking of a specialist. He is 21 weeks old. Do you think its too early? I wish I knew someone who lives around here with dogs that have SM so they can view Toby and see if they think he has it from his patterns.
What do you think?
