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

Three year old yellow lab, - is plagued with yeast He has

Three year old yellow lab, Murphy - is plagued with yeastHe has black skin under his neck....The hair on his back grew back after repeated shampoos and rinses with Zymox. I have to clean his ears daily. He now has a cyst between his toes. The vet gave me Rimadyl and simplecef. Is there any natural remedy to be used instead? I've read that Epsom salts soaks,apple cider vinegar ...even pro iodine ...can ward off yeast. Please advise. Murphy does not like the taste of ACV - can he have an ACV pill? I already give him coconut oil.

My pug and schnauzer both have ringworm. The pug was on 2 weeks of an antifungal drug, which didn't seem to work. We are now using ketaconozole shampoo and lime dip plus twice per week. He continues to get new lesions. We have disinfected the house and have him confined to one room. Is there any homeopathic remedies for dogs for ringworm?
