Jada paws are extremely infected, irritated, raw and dry. My vet, (her name is Dr. Mary Lombardo, V.M.D. and she has been wonderful with the treatment of Jada with all her issues. Actually the entire staff at the Mahoning Valley Animal Hospital has been nothing but helpful to us! I don't know what I would do without them!!), indicated she has never seen paws like this and that a major intervention was needed. She advised me that if this regimen of medications does not give Jada any relief, she may want to biopsy her pads to see if there is an immune system issue. Dr. Mary also mentioned about a possible Zinc deficiency; however she should be getting that all in her prescription food. As of right now, she is unsure of a definite diagnosis. Jada's condition will be treated several ways and each way is needed in her situation:
I've been through so much with Jada, this is just another mountain to climb. This time is seems a lot more challenging but I will do what I can for Jada. I will take the 110% initiative to get her through this and get her back to healthy. I made a promise to Jada and I won't let her down!
