    DefaultGood coat = good news

    I had Mira at the vet get some medicine and the vet remarked how great her coat looked (Mira is over 13). She said often a poor coat happens when a dog is fighting cancer or some other illness. So I will not complain any about the yellow fur bunnies all over the hardwood floors!

    Good news! I think coat is a good indicator of general health. When we went to visit Baloo on sunday his coat looked like crap (dull) and he stank. We assumed it was just hospital smell, as he normally doesn't smell at all. But the past two days when we've been to visit him we both noticed how much better he smelled and how his coat had started to look glossy again. I thought maybe it was just me being hopeful and optimistic, but others noticed it as well.

    So I think processing all those toxins was taking a toll on his body and showed through his coat.

    Makes you feel so good when someone notices what a good job you are doing.
    Along the lines of the nasty smell on Baloo, my old lady Twiggy smells bad and I know she has failing health. Poor thing, there's nothing I can do to coax her to eat a better diet. I'm just glad she's eating at all. At 17 yo I cherish each day I still have her.

    Well, good news! That makes sense, as the outer appearance often reflects inner health. Congrats on a good checkup!
