Good day all, so i am joining and creating this thread due to the fact the vetanarians in my town are....hopeless. Allow me to explain.
I have a 13 year old staffy/whippet female (de sexed) with a bad skin problem. I have seen 2 vets, the second vet i saw was just as bad as the first, i guess they learn from the same book. Anyways, both their recommendations were antibiotics, and shampoo.
So i done this for 2 weeks, and a slight improvement occurred, this "improvement" i later found out to be from the antibiotics. Once the antibiotics were gone, a few days later her skin flamed up again... and worse, my guess is the fact antibiotics IMMENSLY decrease your immune systems capability to fight off microbes and the like.
Like always the dog shampoo for $40 was useless. My presence here is not to find another pet doctor, but to ask YOU if you have had the same problem and cured it. I strongly disagree with most modern day treatments for dis-ease and sickness. The animal body, regardless of what type, shouldn't need chemical and synthesised treatments to suppress symptoms of dis-eases and sickness. They need to direct themselves to the ROOT cause.
