Hey everyone, so for quite some time now my 4 month old puppy has had a skin rash. A little while after we brought him home we noticed that on the bare part of his belly by his "boy parts", he had dark splotches. We thought they were dirt and tried wiping it off and it wouldn't come off. A few weeks later we noticed him constantly scratching himself all over non-stop. We noticed he had flees. We went to the vet and got him the comfortis pill. The flees disappeared quickly but there was absolutely no relief with his itching. So we took him to our vet, at that time we were also dealing with some parasites that he had gotten a week or so before, so we were doing follow up fecal test for that and they decided to see if maybe he still had parasites that were causing the skin problems. They did the fecal, and found no parasites. So then they did a skin scraping for mites or any kind of bugs. Nothing. I believe they may have done two skin scrapings thus far. Both ending up negative. So our vet then came to the conclusion that it must be something bacterial, maybe he was allergic to something or rolled around in something and he got the outbreak. So our vet has him on some antibiotics now. Boone (our puppy) has been on it for I believe one and a half or two weeks and the rash is still there, and is not showing ANY signs of clearing up. The rash starts out as pus filled, little red bumps and as it scabs up it turns brown. Its under on his tummy, inside of his legs, I think it's on his elbows as well because he itches them quite a bit (although I haven't actually seen bumps on his elbows, but I'm sure if he's itching then it's there also), and the backs of his legs. I have taken quite a lot of antibiotics myself, and I know from my experiences, once I start taking them the illness/outbreak or whatever the problem is clears up almost immediately. I'm not an expert at dog medicine but it seems like it would be getting pretty cleared up by now. We still have about 4 or 5 pills left to give him, and were not scheduled back for another visit for a couple weeks, when he'll get his last set of vaccinations, but I just wanted to ask you guys, who most of you I know have owned quite a few dogs, and have been through experiences like this, am I'm right about these antibiotics not doing a thing? I'm thinking I'm gonna call the vet tomorrow and tell them we want something else done or were going elsewhere because I hate seeing my dog be uncomfortable and I hate wasting my time there. Do you think we should find a better vet? What would y'all do? I know this is really pretty long, and I REALLY appreciate it if you read all of it or even skimmed it Have a great night!
