Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Based on the history and the breed of dog there is very very likely an underlying allergic problem. Either to food or something in the air.

I would recommend that you switch the diet to a veterinary prescription diet designed for food allergy dogs.

In the interim you will want to clear up the skin infections and treat with a short course of anti-itch prednisone.

Then we will wait and see how she responds to the food allergy trial.

Make sense?

Paul

Where can I get the food/medicine?
thank you.
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

You can obtain the food at any veterinary clinic.

And you can request the prednisone from your veterinarian.
