Extensive Dermal testing – Sebaceous Adenitis
Breed: Standard Poodle
Sex: Spayed female
Foster home: Julie
The shelter thought I just had a bad case of flea allergies. The veterinarian thought it was likely, too. But after a couple of months, my skin is only a little bit better and the hair on most of my body keeps breaking off in little pieces. Now the nice dog doctor wants to see me a few more times so that they can check some things out at a special laboratory. Yikes! Those places need quite a bit of money to find out what is wrong with me! Since everyone thinks I am such a nice girl and I act spunky and healthy, they all think I should have this done so that maybe they can fix me.
Do you want to help me with my mystery skin “thing”? I would be very thankful for any help you can give! Hopefully I can post an update in April and let everyone know when I will be available for adoption.
Lots of tests were run on me but everything was negative. They were afraid I had Sebaceous Adenitis so I was tested for that. The test result came back as inconclusive. But most everyone agrees that is probably what I have especially since standard poodles are one of the most common breeds to come down with this.
The good news is that I can be adopted. The bad news is that I had quite a vet bill for all the tests. If you can help me with those, I would be very grateful!
