Can You Help Daisy Combat An Unusual Skin Condition?
I had a recent call from an old friend who has a problem with her 5-year old Bedlington bitch. "Daisy" is one of our Sevray puppies, and the problems she's having aren't something I can recall in any of our own, so I can't suggest any ideas which might help in this case. Daisy occasionally develops a very itchy condition around her mouth and chin, and she scratches to the extent that she makes it bleed. The vet has been trying to discover the cause for ages, and has used various treatments, both conventional and alternative (homoeopathy etc) to help when the condition flares up. There's no obvious cause so far, so everyone is baffled. It doesn't seem to be "seasonal" or related to diet etc. The latest consideration is thrush, so treatment is in hand for that, but if anyone has any suggestions, please let us know. If anyone else has had similar problems, what did you do? Thanks for any help and suggestion, Viv
Thanks Viv this is certainly an unusual skin condition. I wonder if Daisy may be putting her nose or mouth into something in the garden that may cause irritation. It does not sound like a usual allergic reaction as it is just infects her mouth and chin.
