An Itch You Just Can't Scratch ...

Ruby's dental went well and she only had to have two teeth pulled - we worried it might be more. While under anesthesia, the vet took a biopsy of a scaly patch on her ear, which he thinks is related to her ongoing autoimmune issues. As you can see, the itchy stitches are driving Ruby crazy. Fortunately, we will have stitches removed and the biopsy results back later this week. Paws crossed for some answers.
