My dog has bumps/pimples, icthing, peeling of the skin, hair loss spots or thinning. what is it?

My dog was treated for a bacterial infection about a month and a half ago and she is still showing signs of the infection. Its red near her abdominal. she is losing her hair in certain spots or in patches. She is biting her tail, back area, and so forth. she was giving oral antibiotics, giving fish protein to mix in her food, and a shampoo to was her three times a week for three weeks. everything was done and given to her but she still has this problem. The vet didnt really know what her problem is he took her skin graph and still nothing showed up, what is the problem? Until i get her back to the vet what could I do to stop the itching?

Hmm that sounds like what my Lab was going thorough. Nothing to freak out about. It sounds like Mange or Allergies. You should keep the dog clean don't leave her outside. Itching is most likely the allergies. She might be allergic to something outside or some thing inside like a type of Cleaner. Change some of the stuff to see if anything changes.

You can give the dog benadryl....its sounds like an allergic reaction....a friend of mine went through it recently....it took months to get it daignosed that hes allergic to grass....now she has to keep it mowed very short and hose him off after he plays in it, but he did get better. The vet told her benadryl was fine.

Sounds like sarcoptic mange. Some of our pups picked this up at the vet's office a couple of years ago. When they started having symptoms, I took them to the vet and he didn't find the mange, a couple of weeks later, I took them to another vet and she said it was the mange. It is a bugger to get rid of.



Sarcoptic mange, commonly known as canine scabies is caused by the parasite Sarcoptes scabiei. These microscopic mites can invade the skin of healthy dogs or puppies and create a variety of skin problems, the most common of which is hair loss and severe itching. While they will infect other animals and even humans, they prefer to live their short lives on dogs. Fortunately, there are several good treatments for this parasite and the disease can be easily controlled.

Your dog has the mange when we had our dog and she started doing that especially losing the hair my dad rubbed some motor oil on her coat everyday and it actually worked and her coat grew back she stopped biting and her coat was healthier than it was before she started losing her hair

Some dogs have food allergies, particularly to corn which is in most dog foods. You can give 1mg per pound of Benadryl twice daily and see if that helps the itching, but it sounds like the skin infection started because of a food allergy, Science Diet makes a food called D/D in a variety of different flavors. This contains different protiens in it that your dog may not be allergic to. I would ask my vet about it because it is a prescription diet. Z/D ultra is another hills food that is hypo-allergenic. If its not a food allergy it could be a flea allergy. where if a flea bites your dog then it has an allergic reaction. Frontline is a flea and tick prevention that is a once a month topical preventative. it is best i\used in conjunction with Interceptor a heartworm prevention. It will be neccessary to have a heartworm test done prior to givin the interceptor to make sure your dog doesnt already have them. but overall your dog most likely has some kind of allergy. have a good day

for all the time it took you to write this, you could have found another vet. If your vet doesn't 'know', why not take your dog elsewhere? even if it was for just this problem. No shame in talking to someone else if your dog is miserable.

your dog may have mange my dog had the same thing and if thats what it is its a possibility your dog may not make it so get it to the best vet in town my dog had mange so bad it would bleed it itched it so bad so we had to put her to sleep u could go to a pet store for dogs and get some anti itch creme that may help

CHANGE HER FOOD TO NUTRO'S LAMB AND RICE WITH LINATONE FOR GREAT SKIN AND SHINY HAIR. MY DOG WAS JUST LIKE YOURS AND WITHIN A MONTH IS OSO SHINY AND THICK WITH NO MORE SHEDDING. FOODS WITH "CHICKEN BY PRODUCES" HAVE THE FEET, BEAK SKIN, FEATHERS! ALL THAT USELESS JUNK THAT CAUSES THESE KINDS OF SKIN PROBLEMS. TRY IT YOU WILL BE SO PLEASED. IT WORKED ON ALL 4 OF MY DANES.

She could be allergic to something, her food brand, bedding,



her shampoo.See if you can find what she is coming into contact with that is causing this, if she scratches more, on the carpet or in her little bed etc... For the itching use Benadryl. Yes, the same kind we humans use, it is safe and will stop the itching. Try this and see if it helps
