my dog (harley) who is 1/2 black lab and 1/2 pitt bull is 3 years old and has dermatitus, he is constantly on antibiotics and if he doesn't take them he loses all of his hair and itches like crazy, which makes him very irritable. The vet gives him steriod shots 3 times a year which make him sick, is there anything else i can do. I have been told to put him down, but he's so sweet and for the most part is very happy and playful. Do you have any suggestions?
I am assuming your pet has allergies. Has your pet seen a dermatologist? Why don't you try an hypoallergetic diet such as science diet z/d. You may also want to consider allergy testing. vetcare
