15 month old Doberman has pustules all over his scrotum.

15 month old Doberman has pustules all over his scrotum. They feel like they are deep in the skin. Also 6 pustules on the top of his nose that are increasing in number. He also has bumps on his neck and back that appear dry. He is not itchy that I can tell. He is on grain free Earthborn Holistic dry food and has been on this food for quite a while with good results until now. He was at vet for scrotum several months ago and a swab showed only white blood cells. They did nothing and now its WAY worse. Cant afford revisit.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the Doberman's name?Customer: Is this a real person? I didnt say anything about flea meds.JA: I'm the Veterinarian's Assistant. I work with them to help customers like you. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Doberman?Customer: Not that I can think of.

My dogs hair is falling out in blotches and skin is turning

My dogs hair is falling out in blotches and skin is turning black in some areas. She is itchy and licks at front paws often. She rubs her rump against furniture to itch herself. She has had problem for over a year. Been to vets several times. Given antibiotics, thyroid pills, etc. Seemed to improve for quite a while and now has returned starting about 2 months or more ago. It now seems to be starting under her left eye. Blood tests showed thyroid problems but don't seem to show what the disease is. Took cephalexin which seemed to help for a while. Her hair grew back OK. She is not on a flea preventative at present. She has been flea and tick free except for recently I have found 2 fleas on her. Do you have any ideas what this could be or what may be a cure? She does not seem to itch all the time. I give her about 12 mg Benadryl at night so she seems to sleep well. Very poor appetite. Doandl WilhelmJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help hair. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about hair?Customer: N. She is a mixed Chihuahua/pug and wighs 18#'s

What is the dog's name and age?Customer: DOG 12JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about DOG?Customer: The hotspot is much better today and possible could be treated with powder only?

He just got a skin allergy he likes to go outside it's hot in Louisiana! Thk u

My girlfriend's dog had a rumbling sound in her stomach and

My girlfriend's dog had a rumbling sound in her stomach and throwing up food yesterday morning. She gave her dog Pedialyte and Tummy Pro by Amber technology. The dog seems to be doing well for over 24 hours. She is active, eating well and drinking just fine. However, she has light blood coming from her urinary tract. She's never had this before, do you know what could cause this? Although, she seems to be doing well. Should we take her to a vet right away or just watch her for another day?

I have a 6 year old Australian labradoodle. For the past 6 months he has been scratching and licking his paws. I changed his food to grain free and administered Benadryl for a few days. He got better but after stopping the Benadryl it seems that the food change hasn't made much difference. He is scratching again and has some redness and small welts and on his lower back. I gave him a bath today and applied cortisone cream and started the Benadryl again
