Default skin disease

About a year and a half ago I posted to this group Our dog Susie, an
Australian Shepherd, has a bad skin disease. Her skin erupts in kind of
blisters and they give her a terrible itch. She scratches the blisters
open and get bloody spots, mostly on her back and chest, her legs are
swollen and itchy. So far we have visited 5 different vets and nobody
has ever seen this before. We just about eliminate food as a cause, our
house is clean, furniture and carpets cleaned. She has a bloodiest,
which gave no indication of a disease, thyroid OK.Part of her body is
shaved to make treatment easier. She has had any kind of pill on the
market. Nobody comes up with a cause. Our vet bill for meds, food, tests
etc has become very high, although that is not an issue.
If anyone can give us some kind of clue, please.

Thanks,

Case

have you gone to see an actual veterinary dermatologist? depending on
where you live, you might have to travel some, and it'll be more
expensive than seeing a regular vet, but i think it would really be
worth it to find out what's really going on.

you can find one he

If you don't find one in your state, also check with animal
specialist clinics; they may have visiting dermatologists that
aren't resident. When Dylan had an unexplained rash, we took her
to a clinic in Albuquerque that was visited by a dermatologist
who flew in from Phoenix once a week. Evidently NM doesn't have
any of its own.

I hope you (OP) can find a doc who can figure this out.

Just curious how you eliminated diet as a cause? I've read of many
cases of dogs having skin problems from corn in their diet. How did
you change her diet to check? I also once had a dog who turned out to
be allergic to grass.

Our vet has a great variety of foods and we started out with a kind that
had absolutely no meat, next no gluten, no corn, no chicken etc. No type
made any difference. We checked for beasties, including mites. She was
fed any medication under the sun, including steroids. (they were
injected of course.) The steroids kept her for three weeks from itching
and then she needed a new shot. As a result her coat turned horrible. To
keep her from itching and scratching, my wife gives her every other nite
a massage and a tranquilizer.
Also a lot of hair is cut and that seems to speed up the healing. So
does the tar shampoo. Smells good too.
Everything is an experiment, because nobody has a clear answer. It seems
that we are making headway.
She eats and drinks well and her other functions are good. She is a lot
livelier than before and seems to enjoy life again although she looks
like hell.

I'm glad she is feeling better, even if she looks bad! I hope she
continues to improve. Best of luck to you!

Maybe if you could snip posts, you wouldn't automatically go in
killfiles. Bye.

Please don't quote this nutcase. Everyone else has him in their
killfiles, and we really don't need to see his hundreds of lines of
insane drivel.

You'd do well to just completely ignore him... an empty screen is more
likely to be right than this psycho.
