Jill had a suspected URI last week and we tried a couple of antibiotics which made her have terrible diarrhea and a very small loss of appetite. She had a course of metronidazole which didn't work. We've been off the URI antibiotics (Clavamox and azithromycin) since Saturday and started Albon on Saturday for the diarrhea. Today is the first day she hasn't had any diarrhea. But her butt has been a mess and she had a big hard poop stuck to it which I could not get off, so we went to the vet today. In the process of them cleaning her up, they wrapped her in a towel and when they brought her back to me I noticed that she had several large clumps of fur that had fallen off, maybe where they were holding her. It looks like she got waxed. The fur came clear off. The vet had no idea why it would have happened. She has skin issues - benign growth and a pigmented plaque were removed in August. And she often gets scabby bits that come off but never anything like this. Had anyone seen this before? Could this be cushing's? She also had developed a very balloon-like belly over the past 8-10 months. Thanks for any insight. I am freaking out a bit right now because I feel so bad for her and I know something's going on, just don't know what.
