    randall here,
    TOBY's improvement has just gone so far and seems to have stalled.
    Bought more "Vetzymn" tablets from the Pet Shop and the lady suggested "SUDACREM" - we did and are trying it but after the holiday Monday he is definitely going to the vets.
    Just thought I would keep you up to date.
    God bless.

    That happens sometimes. All you can do is keep trying. Thanks for
    letting us know.

    I'm sure you can conquer this.

    Hugs!

    Dear Valerie,
    Another update on TOBY.
    He started to get worse again.
    Not biting at the old place on his right rump - incidentally, the absolutely bare circle of about one and a half inches has now got thick black - jet black - hair growing healthily there now.
    The intolerable itch seemed to be coming from between the two hind legs and up his belly. It was bare and almost raw.
    He was beside himself with itch/pain/heat - who knows; isn't it a pity they can't talk.
    I had tried the "Germoline" then the Pet Shop lady suggested "SUDACREM" used for babies nappy rash.
    THEN the "postie" (POSTMAN) who has avery bad stutter, suggested a treatment his wife had discovered in desperation with their dog - roughly the same symptons - she started to use "Head And Shoulder" hair shampoo - I have used it all my life because it had a strong antiseptic smell and every day, coming home from my apprenticeship working all day in the tiny engierooms of fishing boats, you literally stank of fishy smells and diesel oil (gas oil some call it)
    Not at all nice.
    It was the only thing that not only seemed to get my hair clean but the "clean smell" that went with its use made you feel confidentally clean; important to a teenager, I suppose.
    But, all of a sudden after trying all these things, my wife decided to take him back to the vet that had produced the best results.
    Everything we had used she claimed was very good (including the cream for cows udders but, of course, being a farmers daughter, she used a different name.) depending on the severity of the condition - the white flakes were pouring off him.
    She said that basicaly it was a yeast growing on his skin and that likely he would have to be on tablets for the rest of his life.
    She gave him an ijection for immediate relief and said that the shampoo she gave was almost exactly like "Head And Shoulders" only about twice as strong.
    So we have a calm, happy, contented doggy,sleeping on the bed with my wife at the present moment- - Easter Sunday, no Sunday School (which is actually in a ordinary school at the back of our house in the middle of a housing estate - school holidays means it is not available for Sunday School either.
    So she is getting a well deserved lie in as she has spent most of the week either going to funerals (I said that everyone around us seems to be dying lately) and driving friends to Aberdeeen Royal Infirmary or Woolmanhill Hospital to see their husbands, mothers or friends. etc.
    Thanks again for your interest and I hope that these other treatments mentioned above and definitely approved by a vet may help some other person with their doggy troubles..
    PS Concerning the jet black patch the vet said that some of her acquaintances who lost their hair through chemotherapy treatment for cancer also found that their hair grew back jet black no matter what the original colour was???? Fist I've heard of it.
    God bless
    randall.

    Here is an update on TOBY'S condition.
    You really all deserve it after all the efforts you put into advising us what to do.
    There is little doubt we went to the right vet at last.
    He is coming on fine in the past few months on a very low dose, half a tablet every two days of some steroid named (on the bottle ) "MEDRONE V 2MG TABLETS"
    Yesterday his hairdresser, the lady cuts and washes him with "Head And Shoulders" shampoo once a month, mentioned that his coat was coming back very much thicker.
    He certainly looks as if he is having a much happier life.
    Thanks for all your kind advice.
    God bless you all.

    Oh Randall

    I just finished reading this complete thread

    I'm so glad your Toby is feeling better!

    I have a chihuahua named Buster. He is a short-haired fawn-colored 4 1/2 pound little boy. I too would do anything to keep him healthy and comfortable.

    After all, he's my best buddy

    And may God bless you too, Randall
    Live Life with
    PASSION
    !
