Hi everyone, I have a 18 month old Bernese Mountain Dog called Barnaby. A few ago he was bathed and developed a hotspot. The hotspot got infected and was treated with antibiotic cream, ointment and Hibi-Scrub. The hotspot has now cleared up. During the time of the hotspot he developed an allergy of some sort. He has a dripping nose, red eyes and dry crusty flaky skin on his back, tip of tail, stomach and groin area. He’s currently on AVA for sensitive skin and stomach. He’s always had a sensitive stomach but AVA calmed that down. He was on AVA chicken before his allergy and we changed him to AVA Fish during his allergy. The vets have put him on steroids but as soon as we stop giving him them the allergic reaction symptoms comes back. Some days he’s worse than others (I haven’t noticed any pattern). I give him Piriton when it seems to be annoying him. This just stops the itchy and makes his eyes less red. I’ve tried ExmaRid formula, COD liver oil tablets and allergy shampoos to try and sooth the skin. I’ve even stopped using certain cleaning products. Nothing is helping. The vets said it may be a flea allergy but he doesn’t have fleas. He is not up to date with fleeing as the vets said not to do it whilst he’s having an allergic reaction to something. If we go down the allergy testing route we will have to pay. I feel like it may be seasonal or may be a dust allergy. Any suggestions? See photos below.
