Hello. I posted first in the welcome section and it was suggested that I post my problem here. I would be grateful for any help offered for the problem my dog has with her skin. Below is what I posted in the welcome forum:- am a proud owner of a wonderful German Shepherd bitch. Unfortunately a few weeks ago she was diagnosed as having a yeast infection. This has lead to her losing a lot of her fur on her belly. On top of that, she chased off an intruder in our home about two weeks after being diagnosed with the infection, and in the process broke her front leg. This has put the treatment of her skin complaint on hold until her leg heals At first the vet put a cast on her leg, but it had to be taken off due to it rubbing on her toes and causing another infection in her foot. After a week of not wearing the cast the foot got better and another cast was fitted. Today I have had to return to the vets as the cast was cutting into the top of her leg causing it to be very sore. Again the vet removed the cast and I have to return in a weeks time to have another cast put on. On top of all this my poor dog has had to wear a lampshade (one of the collar things to stop them licking) which has caused her hair to fall out around her neck. I have been told that we cannot treat the skin complaint until the leg has healed, but surely there must be something I can do to ease the discomfort. At the rate we are going I'm going to end up with a completely bald dog Please help my dog I did a little research and found that you can use natural baby wipes to help clean the skin. Hopefully this, over a space of time, will help. Any other suggestions on how to treat her skin would be gratefully received. I can't give her a bath as I was told by the vet she must not get her cast wet, and although she has not wearing a cast for the moment, it is no point starting the treatment with the special shampoo as she has to have the cast back on next week. Many thanks in advance.
