My dog charlie has a yeast issue in one ear. I've used the

my dog charlie has a yeast issue in one ear. I've used the products bought by at the vet. One vet wanted to put him on predisone a drug I can not use on any member of my family. He the said there was nothing he could do. I've tried some home made vineger solutions as well. Charlie weighs 211 so he is not so keen on having his ears messed with but we do clean them daily. They usually have very little debris in them but what the vet said was yeast. Isn't there medication to tackle yeast with out giving a dog steroids.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. How old is charlie?Customer: Six next monthJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about charlie?Customer: Charlie had a skin problem last spring. I was told it was a severe problem here in the area. It required medicated shampoo and two weeks of antibiotics. He has had a cyst removed from the lower lid of his eye and in the fall and spring appears to have allergys just like his owners.

We are adopting a dog from a shelter. All is ready to pick

We are adopting a dog from a shelter. All is ready to pick her up and she is a real love needing affection. She was a stray and by adult daughter with me has dog allergies and cat allergies. This dog is a mutt and we had hoped for a mini.schnauzer. She may be part terrier, schnauzer or a little ??. Problem: On 2 visits she loves to kiss and lick your cheeks. Our other two dogs did not do this very much at all. We are making a hard decision. When the dog kissed my daughter on the cheeks and kisses her so much..they bonded but Laura became very itchy from her saliva.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 terrier's name?Customer: She has no specific name. The shelter only refers to her as Debbie Hairy..as she had such long hair from being neglected and they actually had to nearly shave her backside ..it was so matted. She is bleck and tan and only 11 lbs. What are the chances that we would not be able to keep her..Sad in Worcester, MAJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the stray terrier?Customer: She was treated for an ear infection when she was brought from animal control to a shelter in MA..ALSO Was treated from testing positive to lime disease and then developed kennel cough. When well enough she was spay yesterday as she underwent surgery for that and also microchip for us.

My female dog is almost 4, and for the past year she has hot

Hi Dr Andy,My female dog is almost 4, and for the past year she has hot flashes at night which are getting worse. They will last up to 30 minutes, and they seem to center around any itchy right ear which she scratches vigorously. Benadryl relaxes her and changing her diet to hypoallergenic Science Diet seems to have helped somewhat.She was spayed early in life. Our Vet thinks it may be related to an outer ear infection, but I am not sure that the infection is not related to scratching it.It is almost as if she might have hormonal problems, but we are not sure what the possibilities might be or how to proceed.Any thoughts? Bob

Ruby is starting to pick up and has had a drink by herself

Good morning, Ruby is starting to pick up and has had a drink by herself this morning but I am still carrying on either the Ranitidine and DiorolyteDifferent question now about her ears ... Ruby has Keats had an issue with her right ear as got a small ear canal and had infections. She was put onto a steroid and was on it for 7 years with previous owner. I have weened her off the but she has now got issues with other ear. She has a large build up of wax and you can hear the fluid inside. Like I said before, we are using homeopathic remedies but nothing seems to be working all the time and she seems to become resilient to any pills after about 2/3 weeks. I try to clean era out (but no too often) with antiseptic wash and the rubbish is thick red/black that comes out. Skin allergy test came back negative to everything! ... any recommendations?Regards Helen
