07/21/2014: Loraine from Orlando: "Yes Theresa...I was stunned that this worked.... I saw a vet on youtube encouraging people to just wait it out and insisted that most of the time it would heal on its own and it did....of course there are exceptions, that's why you have to closely observe while you are waiting...."

07/21/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Nayibe!

You state that your dog was diagnosed with hypothyroid in 2012 -did your vet at the time prescribe T-4 for her? This is a fairly inexpensive synthetic hormone that when dosed properly gives you a normal dog again. The overweight, the ongoing skin funk - these are all the result of your dog's compromised thyroid; dose the T-4 and these issues will resolve - really.

That said, Ted as usual has some excellent advise:

He also has a dip you can bathe her in for the fungal infection on the skin:

Lastly, in addition to the above, you might consider adding borax to her drinking water - one quarter teaspoon to two liters of water and have that be her drinking water for a week to 10 days."

Everyone is talking about the great healing properties of tumeric for dog skin but I'm unclear if the concoction is dry tumeric (from grocery store) and water or just use tumeric root. What is better dry or fresh?"

She was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2012 after her second rabies vaccine, and since then I only have spent money in different vets: antibiotics, laser, acupuncture, etc. These last four months have been the worst. First a bacterial infection now this week fungal infection on her skin. Feeding her with ground beef and hard boiled eggs. Now she is taking antibiotics again and fluconazole for 14 days. I think it is too much for her. She is also overweight. I don't know what to do, what kind of food I can give her. Please help me . Thank you in advance and GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU. Please respond to me."

07/21/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Pam!

Please read up on seborrhea in dogs:

You mention bathing your dog in medicated shampoo; depending on the shampoo, you may already be doing what is needed to treat the seborrhea. If this were my dog I might continue with the anti-staph dips for another couple of weeks just to ensure the skin is truly clear from any staph or yeast infection.

The beef ribs don't sell as well as the pork ribs, so most grocery stores do not regularly carry them, but most stores are able to place special orders with their suppliers - or you might just cut to the chase and see if Pingels on Main Street carries them."

Thanks for the follow up! How nice to know that you CAN take the 'do nothing' approach in this situation and simply allow the ear to heal in it's own good time!"

07/20/2014: Pam from Shawano, Wi: "So how do I treat the 'secondary seborrhea'. I gave her the Anti staph/anti fungal treatment, should I continue with this? I am also doing the Mange treatment 2 times a week now (it seems to be helping). I bathe her with medicated shampoo and have been rinsing with the diluted ACV. The sores are healed - just no hair yet. Plus she has not gotten any new ones since I started the Mange treatments. I have been giving her water with baking soda also. I gave her a chicken thigh bone and she shredded it in minutes. Will look for beef bone, all the stores here get boneless meat so no one has beef bones, even the restaurants use the boneless meat. Will keep looking for beef bone."

[YEA]  07/20/2014: Loraine from Orlando, FL: "Hey EC....How is everybody doing? A few months ago, I had wrote in to EC asking for help when my cockapoo came down with hematoma in one of his ears....well I had promised to let you guys know what worked for me so here I am.....hopefully this can help someone out there. After much research and some wonderful advice from you guys...I decided not to go ahead with the surgery which was costing me $400.00 plus my dog was going to be in a lot of pain as well, and just wait this thing out as was suggested by this one lady whose name I can't remember.....sorry....anyways, after six weeks, my dog's ear is back to normal...can't believe it even now..all I did was just leave it alone although sometimes, I would put some ice on it and rub a little arnica cream on it but other than that I pretty much leave it as is....a lot of people had said that the one ear would be kinda deformed....not this one...I am so grateful, this dog is my big, this can save someone's dog from surgery, a lot of pain and some money.....thanks for listening..."

Hope this helps.

  Re: Demodex and Blackheads
Sun, 20 Jul 14 19:49:15 -0500

07/20/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Debbie!

I have seen the blackheads on some of my worse demodex cases, so I would agree that the blackheads are dead mites/reaction to decomposing mites.

Demodex in a 3 year old dog is a concern, as demodex typically is associated with an undeveloped immune system. That you have it in a 3 year old may indicate an undiagnosed underlying condition such as hypothyroid.

The sores on the vulva sound like yeast complications - wiping with Ted's anti-fungal/anti-staph will help, or straight Milk of Magnesia or Apple Cider Vinegar. You may wish to alkalize your dog's drinking water - to combat the yeast internally - by giving 1 teaspoon of baking soda into 1 liter of water; this is a crisis dose to be given for 5 days and then drop down to one half or one quarter teaspoon to one liter of water."

07/20/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Pam!

I would offer the raw/rare beef rib bones for the shark mouth; chicken thigh bones are good for the molars, but for pulling out retained shark teeth you need sinew and cartilage, so give a beef bone or T bone if you can.

I think the itching with the collar is normal; I would make sure the collar is smooth on the inside, so there is no irritation caused by the collar. Do keep in mind that any attention you pay to her when she scratches only serves to reinforce the behavior, so ignore her when she has the collar on - she may quit the behavior in a few days if you simply ignore it. Can't hurt to try!

And I think you may be dealing with secondary seborrhea - I posted on it below."

07/20/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Pam!

Sounds like your min-pin has seborrhea:

Your dog's case could be considered 'secondary seborrhea' because it appears in connection with the demodex.

The bloody pustules on the back could be allergies or could be staph. If the scabs are healing over, I would give it time for the hair to come back.

I would certainly continue with the baking soda water as alkalizing often helps overcome some allergy symptoms."

  Re: Question of How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Sun, 20 Jul 14 19:34:55 -0500

07/20/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Rickie!

From EC's page on ACV for dogs:

Dosage and Instructions: Start with a one-teaspoon dose mixed into your dog's food twice a day for a 50 lb dog (adjust accordingly by weight) and if necessary increase up to about 1 tablespoon twice a day for the same size dog. For skin application, you can spray on or rub apple cider in directly, or for sore or open wounds mix the ACV with equal parts water before application to the dog's skin. In the case of pests or parasites, bathe your dog and then apply a 50:50 mix of apple cider vinegar and water. Allow this to air dry on your pet to kill off fleas, ticks, ringworm, etc. and to prevent future infestations and/or infection. You can also spray your dog with apple cider vinegar before going out for a walk, in order to repel fleas and ticks naturally."

  Re: Kitty with a sore ear :-(
Sun, 20 Jul 14 19:33:01 -0500

07/20/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Graeme!

If you have two cats with this condition, it might be ear mites.

First read up on ear infections in pets on EC:

Also look at the ear mite page:

I also DITTO Om's advice on seeking out the vet; treatment with the wrong remedy will only prolong your cat's discomfort which makes treating the painful ear a fight and that much more difficult to cure."

07/20/2014: Pam from Shawano, Wi: "Anybody have any idea what this could be, if it's not Demodectic Mange? She does not itch unless she has collar on. Any ideas as to how to treat this? The Mange treatments seems to be helping, the white areas around her face and eyes are going away but the neck area seems to be worse. Sorry could not get any clear pictures of her double rows of teeth both top and bottom, she refused to cooperate!"
