My dog keeps shaking his head and digging at his ears. I had

My dog keeps shaking his head and digging at his ears. I had him in in February for this and they washed his ears but found nothing and gave him a short dose of an antibiotic and general. Said it was an allergy. I have since kept up the benadryl and ear wash. Had him groomed yesterday and it started all over again. Back on benadryl. Vet won't give anymore antibiotic which really seemed to help the most. My charge was $590 for this one visit. We are both retired and that hurt. What can be wrong that it keeps returning? He is a super clean dog and lives indoors all the time. I just had him groomed yesterday and they cleaned his ears. I forgot to mention he is a yellow lab. Really sweet dog. Help please!

My wheaten terrier is 5 now is is having major hot spots.

Hello, my wheaten terrier is 5 now is is having major hot spots. May have a fungal yeast infection. Chews at paw, his underside around his penis and inner thighs are covered in now black yeasty bumps or scabs.I switche vets recently after being dissatisfied with antibiotic rounds that were not getting rid of problem. Every time Tahoe came back from being groomed, he would have another skin issue. I recently switched to a raw food diet thinking that would help and I now have a holistic vet. We are working on it but I'd love your opinion.Allison
