Dog Veterinarian: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no
Dog Veterinarian: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Ok, first I need to know a few things

1. Is he eating?

2. Is he vomiting or having any other problems besides the discomfort with the skin?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no... he has not eat today.... eat part of it last night
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
he vomit all the water and stuff up just little will ago
Dog Veterinarian: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

If he is not having any other problems that are significant you can apply some of the Prednisone cream to his skin. But make sure you wear gloves. If he continues to vomit and feel unwell then you will have to take him to an ER today as he can get dehydrated and his electrolytes can get out of whack and this can make him very sick. Also it is very likely he has a skin infection based on what you have described and this will need to be dealt with especially after using prednisone cream.

I have been doing dermatology for 26 years and there is a high likelihood that your dog has a food allergy based on breed alone and that is very under diagnosed at vet hospitals. My best suggestion to you would be to see a vet dermatologist and I can help you find one. I hope this helps you but please let me know if you have further questions or concerns. I check my computer every night so you can leave questions here even later and I will get back to you. Sincerely, DRB
