Hi. Lori is 5. She is a lovely naughty tortie. A couple of years ago she got skin allergy dermatitis on her ears and she has had this twice more, in spring when the sun is surprisingly hot. Sun protection cream works well (thick, nasty stuff). November last year she got an infection in 3 paws/ toes and both ears, and scabs on her back/ tummy. Cleared up with antibiotics and creams. Now she has an infection on her front left paw, in between the toes, it's green pus. This spreads to her right ear, inside, and patches of scabs on her tummy, nose, chin and back. She's been on antibiotics for 40 days! Every time the antibiotics are stopped the infection is back in 2 days. It then takes 10 days to get better again. She's on Cefalexin antibiotics, Positon unguento skin cream, and Canaural ear drops. I have been to both of my vets today. She has had a test for FeLV and FIV, results tomorrow. First vet thinks maybe amputation of first part of toes (NO). Second vet says no antibiotics for 10 days before a swab can be sent to the lab (NO - she would get very ill). I'm starting to think Sun allergy dermatitis is actually Food allergy dermatitis which contributes to poor healing. Help please.
