hi everyone, this is my first post and i hope i'm not posting in the wrong room. since mid june 2015 my dog is shedding her summer coat and in the last couple of days every time i hold my dog, my skin become red, itchy, and there's small bump like a mosquito or insect bites. i just gave her a bath earlier this day and when i hug her i got itchiness and bumps and redness allover my skin. anyone know what is going on? i never see my dog scratch her body and i don't see any sign of redness or flea on her.
Morning All Just stopped by to say hello, Kobi has been with us for almost 3 years now and we love him to bits. We have recently been up against some health issues and I wanted to ask you guys if you had any experience with the following please? - Firstly Kobi started to show signs of an itchy ear and progressively over some weeks it became obviously worse to the point we could see a dark brown build up, no amount of ear cleaner, cotton wool would seemingly shift it and with Kobis continued scratching became obvious we needed a vet visit. - Since Kobi was 'treated' for a microbial infection in the ear , it hasn't really got a great deal better, the dark brown waxy substance has subsided and his left ear is certainly no way near as inflamed and irritated as was before. The vet said he had cleared a lot of gunk from the inner ear and said the ear drum was in tact. - It looks as though this may have gone to his right ear, although we cannot see the same dark substance, Kobi is beginning to scratch at that ear. Sadly he also is scratching his bottom lips too, this is causing them to become scratched and raw also. - In addition to this we have also noticed Kobi wanting to scratch, lick, bite, clean his anus very vigourously, to the point where if left he would bite and bite. Now I want avoid too much detail but had to explain best I could. I imagine it very irritating if itchy bottom. We thought worms but is wormed regularly, tablets from the vet. On inspection I can't see anything obvious, other than after he has been at it it's very clean. - Kobi has also taken to licking things, a lot, the sofa for instance, he will constantly lick the sofa as if trying to clean something from it or clean his tongue?? To the point where if not stopped the sofa is sodden at that spot. The sofa isn't it, he will lick the tiled floor, or the wooden floor boards - I have also noticed Kobi has had a drippy nose... So all in all doesn't make great reading. Kobi is our everything, our little boy we couldn't have and now we are at our wits end as to what to do. As said we had been to the vets and Kobi is that anxious he can't have a muzzle on so last time had to go under for his ear exam and as the vet put down an existing condition cannot claim through our insurers. Kobi eats a kibble diet and water, we occasionally make chicken with plain rice as his stools were a little loose, I thought after a bout of diahorrea I assumed a sore bottom, hence the cleaning, but this is going on some. Not sure what detail I could add, any advice, help, experience shared or given at this stage would be most appreciated. With best regards Kobi & family
