Sponsor Animal Update: Marty
2nd Quarter 2011
Marty’s foster mother made a recent appointment for him to be seen by an Animal League veterinarian because she noticed his skin was a little dry and he seemed to be scratching it a lot. She wanted to make sure that he wasn't developing allergies like his roommate, dog Rolfie. Allergies are a common problem in Golden Retrievers. At this point, they don't think Marty has allergies. He was given a prescription for derma caps which should help with his skin and his foster mother also started adding olive oil in his food which he seems to love. Marty developed a recent ear infection which took over a week to resolve with a prescription of Ottomax. Although Marty doesn't seem to mind the cold, he and his foster mother are very much looking forward to the warmer weather so they can both enjoy days at the park!
