Dog Has Yeast or Mange
Ted, I hope you can help us! Our newfoundland dog we believe has yeast or mange. She has red skin, black spots like pigmentation and scratches until she bleeds. .Also, her hair is falling out, and her skin is VERY dry. We think this started 2 years ago with her ears, they smelled terrible and she shook them nonstop. Her ears still smell, but they don't seem to bother her much. However, she does have a discharge that comes out of her eyes, so each morning her eyes have to be cleaned just so she can see. Our vet says it is due to her hormones and she will get better in time, and this past summer our vet put a flea control on her which seemed to make her problem worse. We've done the mange cure, followed your directions and it seemed to help a little, but was not getting rid of her problem and symptoms. We've also tried ACV, and TKO, and she might seem a little better at first but still scratches and bites at herself. We have started to feed her a complete natural diet with little or no grains. Could you please tell us what else we could try. And what we could use on her skin for the excessiive drying. Would the Milk of Magnesia you've spoke about be good for her? Please respond as soon as possible Thanks G.D. and K.
