June 26th

I think I am seeing a little fuzz growing some of Bounce's bald areas. I will need to monitor this so I can tell if it is really new growth or if it was there all along and I didn't notice. If he had not become so camera shy I would do a weekly photo journal, but he runs from the camera.

June 9th

I haven't updated this blog for a long time. I haven't had much to say about Bounce. He lost a little more hair on his back and along the inside of his hind legs, but it seems to have stopped, at least for now. 

I put him on antibiotics because I thought it couldn't hurt. The vet gave them to me, but she says he does have an autoimmune disease, regardless of how the blood work looks. She told me three pathologists have confirmed Alopecia. She doesn't believe the infection has anything to do with it. I don't know what to think, but I have tried anything I thought may help. 

I continue with the herbs, but I have no idea if this is helpful or just a placebo for me. I have to admit he has a new name, baldy. He's also a little more bossy with the herd then his usual attitude (which has always been pushy), so I think someone out there called him baldy too. : ) 

I'll get photos of him when I get the chance, but the change is not drastic.
