Customer Question
We have a 115...

We have a 115 lb Great Pyrenees that is 1.5 years old. He has been on antibiotics for nearly the entire year because of itchy bumps on his skin. He would improve but then the bumps would come back when he finished the antibiotics. He recently developed a rash-like condition on his belly with bright red sores about the size of dimes and his nose and lips became reddish, chapped and began peeling. He also had green discharge from his nose. Our vet gave him prednisolone for his itching, amoxicillin for his green mucus and SMZ TMP for his skin bumps. Also put him on ketconozole because he smelled like yeast. He has been on the SMZ TMP for over a month but we recently introduced Amoxicillin and he is really disoriented. His feet slip when standing and he stares off into the distance like he's out of it. Completely unlike his normal behavior.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the Great Pyrenees's name?

Marlin. This wasn't for fleas though
