Hi, I have a 2.5 year old female shih tzu. For the past few months she has been suffering with really sore 'armpits' on both her front and back legs. She is none stop itching in these places all day and all night to the point where she almost constantly has a cone on. We've been to the vet about it, we're there almost every other week. We've had her on only specials feed for 10 weeks, on antibiotics, tried different pills and creams and shampoos. The latest was steroid tablets which we don't want to try yet, only as a last resort. She also often gets ear infections which I don't think are connected but may be relenvant? We have no idea what is causing the soreness but we really need to stop this as it's horrible seeing her like this any help?
