Great pics of a gorgeous pup.
Sheba and Juliet
He has been doing a lot better on the itching thank goodness, and has gotten almost all his hair back, lol poor baby had a naked butt for about a month while I was narrowing this mess down. I think if he got one more oatmeal bath he was gonna pack his blanket and binkie and run away from his mean momma.
Funny but I was able to figure out some of what he was reacting to with my toddlers help 😉 he would scratch alot more after my son would “share” different snacks. Not the most scientific way to go about it but heck I’ll take it. lol
I am not sure what all my vet tested for in the mange and skin problem area, just know that he didn’t have any of it. I’ll admit I started glazing over a little when she told me he didn’t have this that or the other and didn’t appear to have any ideas on what it could be. lol
Hound Dog Mom and Shawna and Pugdogmomsandy,
Just joined and wanted to thank you for all your very useful information!!!! I am in the research stage of trying to move my fuzzy babies over to a more healthy diet and ya’ll have been just priceless with the time and research ya’ll have been willing to share. I have a 7 month old great dane, and 2 shelter pups. I think the chihuahua mix is 7ish and my big girl (? part mastiff) is 5ish. They weren’t sure how old either wwas when I got them or and real guess on breed at the shelter.
Started checking out the different kibbles when Hercules (baby dane) was scratching himself raw and starting to look like a hairless Great Dane. Took him to the vet and had him checked for mange etc, though my other pups seemed fine. Thought mange was contagoius so didn’t know how only he could have it. After his tests she told me she didn’t know what was wrong with him and I figured he must be allergic to something so started switching out kibbles to see….this site has been a sanity saver with all the info on the kibble and …… and the info ya’ll have shared about feeding raw has been a god send.
Sorry about rambling and as I keep figuring it out I am sure I will drive ya’ll crazy with questions
