A few weeks ago, I shared that Sadie was not quite herself--she's been licking off her fur and hiding more often than usual. We took her to the vet to rule out medical issues, and the vet suggested starting her on Prozac.
When the vet gave me the prescription, she said that Sadie was sort of "inbetween" doses because of her weight. If she didn't progress after a few weeks, I could increase the dosage (from 1/4 pill to a 1/2 pill, once daily).
She's been a good girl in pilling, and we've started to see moments of her old self returning. But, I came home from work last Friday to half of the fur on her tail being gone.
I increased her dosage the next day. These kinds of medications take time to work, and I need to remember to be patient. It makes me very sad to see her doing this, and I wish she could tell me what was wrong.
She isn't crazy about allowing photographs lately, but I got one photo using a freeze-dried chicken heart as a bribe. Note how much fur is missing on her flank, bum area, and tail. Her entire belly is bare too.
We love you, baby girl, and hope you feel better very soon.
