Is there anyone who knows about brewers yeast? I have read good things about the vitamin. However, it calls for 1 tablet for every 10 pounds, I have a 97 pound Newfoundland, that's a lot of tablets in one day - any suggestions. Desperate in New York.

try Nu Stock..ask for it at an animal feed and supply store. It is for manges, dandruffs, mites, itching, wounds, etc...it is sulphur base, I am so happy for Rosco, he has stopped itching and is doing a lot lot better. I had tried numorous things, before I found this. The vet said keep doing what I'm doing, it was less then $20.00.

My cuddles is my best friend and companion but he has had health issues for the last 4yrs. Serious reoccuring skin problems that I have been treating with Ketaconizone, Predisone, Relief Shampoo, Advantex flea treatment, Hills perscription diet Salmon and potatoe dogfood, (allergy free, ultra sensitive). And my cuddles who has only seen relief in his 4 yrs. maybe twice weighs so heavy upon my heart, many have told me to put him down that it is inhumane to make him suffer. So I have turn to a divine source of healing and have changed the whole approach to his recovery. Prayer and believing that God the greatest Vet. and His appraoch has lead me to stop all drugs,and shampoo's and dog foods. For my cuddles will be a testimony how much God does love animals

The page was great, but I have been to my vets. He took a scraping and it came back sporidesmiella suiformis. No one seems to know what it is or how to treat it. My dog's skin is just torn apart, and he is suffering terribly. Can you please help me?

I wish I had seen this on this web site before I spent 269.00 to have the vet tell me the same thing and prescribe antibiotics and the ketoconzole and shampoo! Oh well. My dog has this reaccurring several times a year.

All I know is that I feel like a terrible pet owner. I love my dog so much, but have a major discipline problem. I let him eat what ever I am, and I think that might be the cause of his CONSTANT itching and scratching. All I ever say to him is "Bob, No licky paws, Bob, No Buddy munch! He seems obsessed with it at times. I have given him the monthly advantage thing and got him a flea color (he doesn't wear it any more because I thought it was too strong.) Please Help!!??

Have found that OTC flea/tick shampoo will dry out the skin if used more than once a month. Use of conditioning shampoos in between helps a lot in relieving the itchyies. Allergies cause enough ithcyies w/o making this worse. Experience.

my dog(choc lab) is scratching and biting, she has red patches and is losing hair in those spots.I heard that licorice root is an alternative to the steroids that she has taken and only help while she is on them, plus they are not good for them to be on longterm. I bought some today. I will post results in a couple days.

My dog Sandy, a girl and 6 years old. She is mix chinchacha/jack terrrier. She gets stress out when I go on vacation for one week and come back with many hole area where she scratching, licking, and biting. I have good cream and I put on 3 times a day but sometime I forget. It seem getting worse and inside thighs, behind legs, underarms what look like black peppers (it is not flea, I checked) andI gave her bath plus a good Advantage flea products but still and she won't stop it! I took her to dog parks and people told me that it is good for her to be outdoor where warm and sunny (good for her skins), it is true?

My dog is two years old, weighs about 55 lbs short blond hair. In the summer her skin turn black and she scratches all the time. Little spots become hairless and the hair will not come back. The Vet said she had some kind of fungus. I have used several shampoos and other medication recommended by the Vet without success. Her skin problem goes away during the winter months. Can you help me out?

My dog is a Great Pyrenees and is now getting what is called, "Hot Spots." Scratchng with his nails or/and teeth, he loses fur. A lot but he has a lot too. I have been to the vet twice now (in 2 yrs.) and have to get some salve called, Animax. plus 2 prescriptions. One is Ciprofloxacin (antibiotic) and Prednisone (for itching). This time I am going to have to go back to the vet so he can get more meds. It did not heal as it did before. The Pyr's are known for these things. He is ok. Not sick or anything like that.
