Nope. She prescribed all those meds over a month ago for an "unknown primary allergy" and secondary yeast infection. Besides blood tests, I requested a skin scrape that came back negative. But during his follow-up two days ago, she tested more invasively for scabies and mange. Both negative. Fecal, negative. The only positive was the T4 at 0.2 but the results for that didn't come back until yesterday, which is when she left the message. One more med she added this time around was Otomax for his left ear, which was pretty bad. He gets wax buildup and it seems like I'm always cleaning his ears out but this stuff was black and just wouldn't go away. I figured it had something to do with yeast but I've never been convinced that was the primary cause of his problems.
