Well, the good news is that he doesn't have anything terrible like mange. The bad news is, it's just hypersensitivity due to his allergies. He is no longer eating anything that is on his food allergy list, which means it has to be environmental. We'll keep giving him the zinc supplements too. Anydog know of any good herbal remidies for hypersensative skin allergies? We need a good supplement to help with this. Mom even bought some biotin supplements since it is suppose to help with skin and hair.
Mom did buy some new laundry soap this week that is hypoallergenic (Arm & Hammer has one) and started to wash all the doggie blankets, and blankets that cover the couches, and bedding to see if that might help a little too. They also have to start giving him baths in a special shampoo (Keratolux). He's gonna love that!
So, it looks like he will be back to the steroids. Only positive thing about that, is he might actually feel like eating again.
I'll keep you all updated as we go along with this. I sure wish it was a more specific diagnosis. Poor guy.
(glad it's not me)
