Default Skin complaint / infection

Thanks Natty Boh. He is already improving. Maybe the vet is right and he just needs the fur out of the way so as to allow the medicated shampoo to get to it properly.

In any event, we are going to change his food to something more natural and use unscented detergent etc for his bedding.

Thanks

Celiac disease is a digestive disorder (genetic, and fouond in dogs and humans) that is characterized by the inability to digest gluten. It would not show up on a skin scrape.

"Celiac disease can lead to skin problems, including hair loss, bumps or lesions, itching and flaking, dry skin. The lesions usually show up on the dog's feet, head, neck, ears and stomach. Other signs include secondary skin infections and chronic ear infections."

Archie improving very well. Daily baths with antibacterial shampoo (pictured below, trying to escape in the second one!). Hopefully the hair grows back!!

We've found that beagles' hair grows rather slowly. I am glad the baths are helping.

Skin infection has cleared up quite well on Archie's back but it still rears its head in other areas from time to time, particularly on the back of his hind legs. He's still on antibiotics. We are of the view now that its some kind of contact allergy and we are now trying to identify what it might be by process of elimination. It's becoming a right pain in the backside but we'll get there in the end!!

Also, we've started giving him evening primrose oil capsules and his coat looks great apart from the uneven area where it still hasn't fully grown back!

Do you notice any odor? Have they checked for yeast? I dealt with horrible infections and hair loss with Sammie and low and behold it was a yeast infection. I hope you find out the cause.....

Any updates on the handsome Archie? I certainly hope you have seen a lot of improvement.
