New poster/ Hair issues
Hello, my name is Louis, I have two beautiful GS. My oldest is Lucas, he is a little over 9 years old, I also have his son who is about 1 1/2 years old. They are truly the kids I never had. But I have a big problem, Had I known of this site a long time ago I would have been reaching out for help. My oldest (Lucas) has been losing his hair for a long time. He has been losing hair all year long for that last 3 years. It is a rate of loss that is abnormal and has always been a concern for me. He scratches and bites all over himself to the point he leaves wet spots on the ground around him. I will sweep the floor one day and I swear I just swept up a poodle. Then I will sweep the next day and have the same amount. once he starts losing the hair above the tail I take him to the vet and he gets a shot and some pills and he is back to normal again for a few months and then it all starts over again. I have been feeding him Pedigree from Costco. I might be hurting him instead of helping him.
But now here is the other issue I have. Hi is a little over 9 years old and he looks like he is 15. In the last year he has falling apart. He gets up real slow, he stinks really bad, and today I noticed that his teeth are either grinding away or falling out. He had them all about 6 months ago when I looked in his mouth. I am just at a loss. I really don't know what to do. Please help me!
