My dog (11 year old Maltese, male, 8 lbs), has always been
My dog (11 year old Maltese, male, 8 lbs), has always been healthy and has never had stinky dog smell. In the last few months, he has started to have a bad odor. I'm not sure where it's coming from. I just get whiffs of it. I tried to pinpoint it, and it doesn't seem to be his ears. His breath does stink, but this is a separate/different odor. He gets groomed regularly, and he used to always smell good, and had a "different" odor when he was due for a groom, but not unpleasant. This kind of seems like it's coming from his skin. He kind of seems like he's licking himself more than he used to, but not an alarming amount. He was just groomed yesterday, and I'm already smelling this odor faintly.

I have a 6 year old (about to be 7 in January) German
I have a 6 year old (about to be 7 in January) German Shepherd mix. We don't know what he's mixed with. He was diagnosed with skin allergies a few years ago. He was ok on ketoconazole for about 7-9 months of the year but then every summer he would need a steroid as well. The vet switched him to apoquel last year and he did great on it until this summer. Ketoconazole and steroids did not help this time either. The vet is at a loss for what to do. I need to help him somehow and I feel helpless. He has almost no hair, crusty skin, he was itchy but that has subsided, he has lost a decent amount of weight, and it almost seems like his joints are hurting him. He doesn't want to sit down when I ask him to, like it causes him pain to do so. He looks terrible and he is miserable and I don't know what to do. I have him on fish oil and probiotics now and he's back on apoquel but I can't help but wonder if something else is affecting him and it's undiagnosed.

About a month ago my dog( 7 year old English springer
About a month ago my dog( 7 year old English springer spaniel) developed a fever of 105.3 I also noticed he had a lump on his back. Shortly after his first vet appointment he developed lesions all over his body mostly in his head and ears but also onto his back. We did blood test and everything looked fine, we did chest x-rays those looked fine, we have done biopsies on three of the lumps and those came back inconclusive. We's we have also checked for lymphoma and that is also negative. He is on prednisone, ciprofloxacin, and we just started an antifungal-ketoconazole this week and nothing seems to be working. The vet says he has no idea what's wrong with him. Please help, thank you
