I have a 8month old female beagle. Kandy has a red rash on her body and she is losing her hair. I took her to the vet and they said their was nothing wrong and gave her some anit-itch meds. Kandy is getting worse I dont want to take her back to the vet and spend that much money again for something thats not going to work. I changed her diet like they said and I also have been giving her oatmeal baths if some one could please help me I love her so much and I dont know what to do I have pictures if you would like see Please Help us.

Kylene: So sad to see Kandy in this condition.. I have Max, a 4months++ old Beag pup, recently been scratchin and scratchin NON STOP till it became reddish and seems to bleed!! i went to my vet, she had his fur under the microscope, found out that it's due to fungal infection! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif she gave me some (xpensive) liquid as well as advised me to give fish oil, cod liver oil (Omega3 content) in capsules for Max's fur as it was shedding and rough (even when he is just a pup). Besides, I've been feeding Max dog food with the ingredients Chicken + Rice but was been told to alter his diet to LAMB which is better for his skin. The vet also advised me to buy a medicated shampoo called "MALASEB", good for fungal and bacteria infections. So far, Max is on his normal diet and oatmeal shampoo, but am definitely gonna send him to the vet if his problem still persists because i do not want it to become a BIGGER health problem for him.. Maybe you can seek your nearby pet shop or vet about MALASEB before trying it out, but BEST advice will be the 2nd trip to the vet before it gets worst!!
Good luck!

WooHoo! Another Arizonan!

I'd take her to another vet to see what they say.

I once had a dog that had a certain type of mite on him. The vet ended up giving use some liquid to add to a bath, and it killed the mites living on him. Worked perfectly.

It could probably be a number of things. The vet should probably do a skin scrape.

Let us know what turns up! and welcome to BW!
