Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello,I'm sorry to hear you and your Yorkie are going through this. Some additional information will be helpful.What kind of tests has your vet done: allergy tests, x-rays, blood work, etc.?Are antibiotics the only treatment they have tried?What do you feed your dog (brand names of the foods)?
What are the names of the OTC products you've tried?Thank you.Anna
They have not done these. last year they gave me a prescription anithistimine. My last visit in Jan 2013 vet prescribed the antibiotics for an ear infection (from scratching his ears). she suggested x-ray of the throat because to make sure the trachea is not collasped, but unfortunately my dog fund was tapped out. I feed they only human food -meat and veggies and apples. i started this 2 years ago when he wouldn't eat the deer/brown rice diet that the vet suggested. I actually have 2 yorkies - they are purebreds - litter mates. he is the runt. i also have his brother - who is bigger and has no apparent problems - except pottie training - he just won't get it. smaller brother definately got the brains of the litter. he is smart and clever and gets his training quickly.
Thank you for your detailed and well researched answer. I hope something you suggested helps. It's hard to believe your dog is on so many medications. They really work their way into your heart, don't they?
