We have an Akita that has come down with something on his

We have an Akita that has come down with something on his toes. They are red to pink on the bottom and between the nails. Sometimes that bleeds a little. We took him to a vet but they didn't know what it was unless they put in down under a general. He is not to up to having his feet played with except by me and I don't want him under a general unless absolutely necessary. Is there a product we can spray on his feet to clean and disinfect them. This has moved from a front foot to all. but subsides for the most part, except for today his left front foot is really bothering him. Any suggestions are appreciated.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: His name is ***** ***** he is six years old.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chewy?Customer: No he is healthy, friendly and loves to play. A great dog. He is very smart and does not like going to the vet probably due to remembering he gets shots there.

I have a beagle/ mix and his skin is irritated to the point

I have a beagle/***** ***** mix and his skin is irritated to the point that he scratches his fur off. His skin seems tender too. I thought it was fleas and tried various shampoos, but to no avail. I took him to a vet and they did a scrape and said it was bacterial. I paid a fortune, the medicine helped for awhile, but the condition reoccurred after the medicine ran out. He looks awful and I don't know what to do for him. He seems to suffer and I'd like a recommended. I can't afford to keep taking him to vet for the same condition, especially if it's going to return after his last pill.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. How old is russell?Customer: He's about two years, I would say.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about russell?Customer: No. I've had him since he was weaned and this has been an ongoing problem.
