My Scottie has several severe scabs on her head. She is up
My Scottie has several severe scabs on her head. She is up to date on all her shots and monthly meds. I took her to my vet and he said there is nothing wrong but I can't keep her from scratching them raw. She has "vet shampoo" also. Is there anything else I can do for her?
I just received a negative lab report two year
I just received a negative lab report for SA for my two year old standard poodle. My vet and I are not convinced. Can you think of a reason the punch biopsies would have been negative? JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: He has hair loss and skin scaling. In some areas, the hair has castes on it and in other areas, it has black ends like a dead follicle. His hair is very brittle and the only place where his hair curled was on his head. He has suffered repeatedly from ear infections and last summer developed his first hot spot. He lost all the hair on his tail at Christmas and 6 weeks later, has hair regrowth. I have done a lot of reading and plan to start on a skin cleansing regiment of anti-seborrhea shampoo, followed by oil treatment, followed by dawn, and then a moisturizing conditioner. But I can't understand the negative punch results. JA: OK got it.

My Goldendoodle has a very shiny, healthy coat from mid trunk to her nose. However, from mid trunk to her rump is very dull and dry and grows very slowly. I give her Merrick grain free and salmon oil. What could cause half the coat to be very healthy and half to be almost dead like? Her skin looks fine and she doesn't scratch at all. She is one yr old

Customer: My name is ***** *****, I have a Samoyede and since moving to country Victoria 4 years ago, he has developed a skin problem. He is now 10 and he is itchy, scratching and loses hair and his coat is smelly. I brush him once a week and find particles that look like fawn dandruff but it is very greasy. He has had skin scrapings biopsies blood tests changed diet and now the only thing the vet can say is she saw a flea on him, which I was shocked and she said it is probably flea related. He has been shaved and I used medicated shampoo plus he was given Macrolone 20 which makes him drink so much water. I was worried and vet said 'he either dies of kidney problem or suffer the itching' I was upset and this has cost me $2300 in a few years and I was off work with cancer for a long time. Can you suggest something as I am far away from specialists for my Hilton JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: My boy has been given Cephalexin Tablets 600mg plus Macrolone 20mg Nizoral Tablets 200mg skin scrape and micro exam, permoxin 250ml. In house bloods T4 and cholesterol and Cytology a few times and not a clue. He is now having Supercoat (fish) for sensitive skin and vegetables. I have tried washing him Malaseb he looks good for a short time but he has got to the stage he is scared of baths now. I do not blame him JA: OK got it.

my 2 year old pomeranian had a beautiful black coat, buy now it is so thin . His silver full tail started to lose hair first and now it is so thin I don't know what to do. I have tried so many things and nothing helps. He is a happy dog that just loves to run and run. So we take him to the dog park. The vet said he looks great but his coat is getting thinner and thinner. My other Pom has a beautiful thick coat and they eat the same diet. He is a well behaved dog. Can you help me, I love him so much. Jeanne
My 9 year old Neutered Toy Poodle has thinning hair on his
My 9 year old Neutered Toy Poodle has thinning hair on his body, neck and chest that has also changed color from black to gray. Just a year ago, he was thick full and black---now he is thin sparse and gray--only his lower legs and head are still black. He also has a monkey butt. I had blood work done. His thyroid is on the lowest end of normal. Liver and kidney tests were normal. What is causing this? What can I do?
