There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like tinypic.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, you can post the link back and I can access them.

What can I help you with in regards ***** *****? Are you concerned that you're still seeing some symptoms despite medication?

The rash is my concern?
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 3 months ago.

I understand that and pictures will greatly help me to assist you on that concern. You'd asked if I had had initial feedback with meds and the pneumonia, though. If you are asking if the baytril should be helping with a rash, that depends on what is causing the rash. We often see that dogs with rashes are suffering from allergies, which may be the case here. In this case, no, the antibiotics will likely not help a great deal and treatment specific to the allergies may be needed. If this is a bacterial concern, yes, it should help unless the bacteria causing the rash is not susceptible to bayril. In this case, a skin culture would be advisable to determine the cause of the rash and what antibiotics to use.
