My English mastiff started scratching herself bloody and licking hair off her limbs about two months ago. She has no fleas (on Frontline) and there has been no major change in diet or surroundings. A cortisone shot kept her well for about 6 weeks but symptoms have begun to reappear. Any suggestions?
This may be an allery, it has been a bad allergy season. Your pet may need another cortisone shot or you can try temeral-p which is a steroid and antihistamine combined into one. It also sounds like your pet needs an antibiotic such as keflex. Make sure your pet does not have fleas b/c not even frontline works 100% or mange. Good luck, vetcare
