Good advice from Marj, it may not be as hopeless as it looks.

I guess I don't fully understand why you are so upset over this. Are you feeling guilty because you think that if you don't take him, no one else will? You're worried no one else will take care of him and he'll live out his last years in misery? If that's it, then I get it... but you have to understand it is totally ok if you do not keep him. *hugs*

We can only do what we can do. I think you're a hero for what you've done so far, I can't imagine taking care of three little ones plus a fourth that requires so much extra care.

I don't see anything wrong with discussing with the rescue what options there are-or finding out if another home (even if temporary) would open up for him down the road. Are you having to pay all of his vet bills right now? I hope not but I'm not familiar with how fostering works either.

Oh Lynne, I'm so sorry about all this. I was wondering if an holistic vet might be able to help and in a less 'costly' and maybe less time consuming manner? I have read that with skin allergies just something as simple rinses in vinegar and water can work wonders as well as addition of fish oil supplements. Also colostrum which helps boost the immune system might help.

Sometimes all the 'chemical preps' ( shampoos, rinses, etc) aren't necessary..but reg vets tend to have these as their only source of treatment.

I understand how upset you are and how frustrating this all is but I think when you've had a chance to 'catch your breath" .. that a satisfactory solution just might pop up! Will certainly be praying that is the case!

Nope -- he's in New Mexico.

Terry and Marj -- I need to find some time to do more research on the web. I too have thought about trying holistic route and need to research all the stuff they sent home with me today.

I'm trying to remain positive and see if I can't come up with some old fashioned holistic remedies to help. I really don't think this medicated shampoo is necessary except maybe during an extreme outbreak -- but that's just my opinion. I think the Pure Paw Oatmeal and Aloe did wonders for him.

Right now I am paying for all of his vet bills because I know how short of money this rescue group is and I made the offer. I also know that they will not have the funds to help pay towards his monthly medical bills.

I look at his eyes and the love he has and how he just wants to be loved back and it breaks my heart because -- except for the allergies -- he's perfect to find a forever family. No behavior issues, completely trained and housebroken, great manners, not shy or frightened, willing to please, knows his name and what "no" means, etc. etc. He would make someone a perfect compaignion if not for the medical costs and treatments. If I could even just get him down to taking a steriod pill each day (not my preferred option), even with prescription food, he might be placeable.

Maybe once I do more research, I will find something helpful as I don't know much about allergies in fluffs -- I've never had a fluff with allergies except for a mild occassinal one in the Spring or Fall where the feet itch and the eyes tear more.

I could tell you what Gus is on for his allergies....

Wish you were in AZ ... would take you to see Dr. Julie.

You could try Emu oil and aloe on his skin.

Naturals have worked well for my two... so it's definitely worth a shot.

Many of the medicated shampoos and sprays ... they mean well but the chemicals can have side effects that may be causing some issues.

Hugs to you and your fluffs.... Will keep praying.
