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!

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!
