    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hi there,

    You've posted your question as a resource post in error. Please repost your question as a discussion. Simply mouse over the orange "Post Now" button and select the Discussion option rather than a resource. The vets will not easily "see" your current post and resource posts are meant as just that, resources for community members.

    Please do not reply to an exisiting resource post either. Please ask any questions as a new discussion thread starter.

    Thanks!

    - Annie

    ONE OF MY SCOTTIES HAD A SKIN PROBLEM,WHICH SOUNDS SIMILAR TO WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH. A VET THAT DID NOT KNOW HOW TO TREAT HIS PROBLEM SCRAPED HIS SKIN AND DIPPED HIM OFTEN.TORCHURING POUR MAC FOR MONTHS. I TOOK HIM TO ANOTHER VET AND HE SCRAPED HIS SKIN,SHOWED ME IT UNDER A MICROSCOPE WHAT IT WAS AND THE PICTURE IN A MEDICAL BOOK. THEY MATCHED. HE PUT MAC ON A HEART WORM PILL EVERYDAY FOR ONE MONTH.PUT HIM ON AN ANTI-BIOTIC.GAVE HIM A CORTIZONE SHOT, THE REDNESS WENT AWAY AND HIS HAIR STARTED GROWING BACK. NOT ALL VET'S KNOW ABOUT THIS TREATMENT.MY VET KEEPS UP ON THINGS AND IS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH PETS.HIS NAME IS CAL CADMUS,IN OAKDALE,CALIFORNIA ,CALL HIM.GOOD LUCK!
