Please take your dog to your vet as she obviously has a difficult skin infection, etc. Any delay in treatment will just make the problem worse and more expensive to treat.

I've had my dog to several vets, spent tons of money on tests and pills like Prednisone and allergy which is bad for the liver, and lotions. Still comes back. Changed to expensive food, nothing. I've tried every holistic remedy under the sun. It all happened when I moved from Arizona to Illinois. We don't have grass where we lived in Arizona. It's worse in summer. I'm now trying coconut oil, hemp oil, Omega-3 and allergy pills. It helps but still bad in places.

Perhaps but maybe not. My dog has has dry flakey skin, and gets crusty spots.


It has bee. Like that,since he was 6 weeks old. He licks hair off his tail. Used no chew, and get confirmed no fleas, no skin infection.

My Maltese also has this skin condition, he's had it now for about 3 years.
His is only on his back, the vets can't figure out what it is. They told me that it has bacteria but they don't know the cause. They put him on Antibiotics 3 times back to back. Didn't do anything. So here I am on these sites just like everyone else looking for help.

My dog got a yeast inf after eating grain free food. Lots of the GFF is loaded with potatoes and other products that turn to sugars in the digestive system which in turn over load our pups and they cant take the extra sugars. This sets them up for a yeast scenario. My dog got it bad. He had it in his ears/ eyes/ skin/ coming from the inside out!! My vet could hardly believe it himself!!


Dont take no for an answer! Ask you vet to test for yeast. I did after reading on a natural vet website and it paid off.
My dog is still suffering the consequences of this food! Be careful what you feed your animals. What goes IN makes ALL The Difference In Their Health!!! I found out the hard way & My poor baby is suffering bc of this JUNK they are putting in and I was feeding a very high $ brand that is a PRIMARY COLOR!
