My Aussie's Skin Problems
He is a lovely red Merle. At about 7 years old, he developed, after boarding, 2 red sores or lesions that would look like a bite from either a snake or another dog. They began to run and develop bloody puss. These lesions then spread to other parts of his body, including his chest. Took him to a Dog Dermatologist, and she cultured the sores, saying that it was a micro bacterial problem regarding treatment with Minocycline, a powerful and high dosage antibiotic. Nothing cleared the sores. Then, I took him to another Vet who pronounced that it was an autoimmune disorder, and put him on Prednisone with Niacin. This actually cured the sores for about 6 months, then they are back again, and he won't respond to either treatment. The Prednisone made him crazy: anxious, howling at night, and aggressive. Never, ever, use this. Has anyone experienced this skin problem? If so, any homeopathic remedies suggested? Help!
