My dog (9 years, hybrid and long hair) scratching and nibbling for weeks throughout and yesterday even bloody. Previously, he had severe flea infestation, but it's gone now. Have stayed at the vet and he found nothing but ridiculous "stubble" in the wound. then Gab via syringe an antibiotic and an anti-itch, he scratched and nibbled still further ... am totally clueless
The best answer
What have you given him against fleas? My dog is to the active substances in "frontline" allergic, which are in other flea control products. He tolerates only advantage of Bayer.
Otherwise, it can also be a nutritional problem. perhaps feeding your dry food?
my dog - also a mongrel - was generally severe skin problems. Since I barfe that have become significantly better. In addition, I have made a Allegietest and naturally avoid anything while he's allergic.
As with humans an allergy can also occur in dogs at any time.
Dry food, a slightly more expensive>
It is very likely that the cause !!! For dry food (also grain-free) is indeed declared dog food, but it has nothing to do with appropriate nutrition. - On the contrary: It was man to man developed (keyword convenience), but above all: disease-inducing.
Justification: It is both harmful to the teeth (the starch residues lie down as a viscous, sticky coating on the teeth, which calculus favors) and the kidneys (dry food absorbs water and therefore lowers the liquid level), that is, a dog must ever 4 to 8 times the amount of water extracted fodder take to size in order to keep it, which is not an animal possible. Mach himself to test and dripping water over the dried fodder; you'll see how quickly it absorbs it, and nothing happens in the body of the dog! Thereby the stomach lining loses some of its protective layer and makes him more susceptible to gastrointestinal irritation and inflammation, which can turn into ulcers. Since the feed volume doubled absorbent conditionally, even painful bloating can follow. What added complication: He Starts first drink, has the dehydration (loss) already used - often with serious consequences if he distributed over the years only receives it, such as diabetes, kidney failure and premature death Male animals because of their. long urethra more prone to urinary stones etc .. Furthermore, dry feed is often the cause of obesity, cystitis (as less urination), itching (as dry skin, like your dog), constipation and acidity (which the cancer risk increases), and the by storage time and place of mycotoxins can form (mold toxins), which are not always apparent to us humans. The risk of food mites (allergens) increases with incorrect storage as well - sometimes even raw materials are already contaminated with it!
Although any layman can come by itself it by a little questioning of the facts, or have you ever seen a dog on the Ähren- or potato field? And if so, then possibly to hunt prey. Even to the symptoms of insufficient kidney show until ¾ of the fabric are ruined. Eventually, they are no longer able to compensate for even slight Dehydrationen (z. B. by vomiting), which is why the disease characteristics also can occur very suddenly. to designate a kibble dog as healthy, can thus be faster to misjudgment than you think ...!
What matters worse: His skin problem might already a first indication of CNI (c hronische N ming i nsuffizienz) be ==> see also the second Paragraph of links http://www.naturheilkunde-bei-tieren.de/trockenehaut.html ! ==> The fact is: Through such unhealthy food he suffers a permanent fluid deficit, which is in the truest sense of the word to the kidneys.
. Judging by the fact that the dog is a carnivore, the best choice would either Barfen or wet food administration with high meat content without cereals and sugar, and with 2% Ash Recommended varieties would include the following:
- N * TUR plus
- W * lfsblut
- Pl * tinum
- d * gz fine food and
- R * nti (all available in pet shops)
... Which I would not give fodder with more than 2% Ash exclusively ==> may reduce renal performance and promote bladder stones!
Note therefore: Expensive does not equal good, but really good is always expensive!
I hope that's enough extent of information.
Should he have a Flohbiss allergy? Http://www.hauttierarzt.de/lexikon/flohbissallergie
The veterinarian please address it, he should go to the thing on the reason.
He also has a fever and is a little apathetic
Exactly where right antibiotics that physicians always directly vollpumpen the animals, I do not understand.
- What did you give him for fleas? Possibly he has not tolerated and thereby get skin problems.
- What are you feeding? something also comes often occurring food allergy. Most is the causative agent crop.
- Do you have a new fabric softener or something? Could also be due.
- Does the vet times taken a skin scraping to be examined in the lab?
He also has a fever and is a little apathetic
If I have read: (to have studied course without having previously made an antibiogram or a skin scraping) Heavy flea infestations, then antibiotic and an anti-itch (for simplicity probably a cortisone administration ...) - then that is a veterinarian fairly easily earned money from the disease of your dog !!!
It's only a tip from me: say goodbye times of the whole dog-ready food garbage ... Whether cheap or expensive - try it but simply times the dog to bring a humane and natural feeding closer. Read it all about BARF
or register at www de barfers
I would argue, with more than 3/4 of all applicable healthy dogs, the itching and other skin problems are a sign of a food allergy ...
Your dog will go's better when he gets sufficient food.
