diag tests: ear cultures - allergic to pollens - gets worse with spring, but not so much this year too much b/c since med isn't working, it is bad enough that it can't get much worse and hasn't. i'm unemployed/ no unemployment insurance - no money for either of us currently.

have used the vet shampoo - maybe it helps her belly. she needs a bath every few days b/c the yeast builds up under her belly ---little black particles and especially on her inside legs. her skin is a mess.

the doxycyclin was a god send. cheap and worked well for a few years. never should have taken her off of it temp'y. the operation has nothing to do with her skin issues other than anti-resistance now.

Hi - in this thread on pages 2, 3 are some links to organizations that help with vet bills: http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...r-today-2.html

I hope this helps. I also hope you are able to work with your local resources to find help for you too!

I think probiotics and digestive enzymes would be a good idea. can anyone recc a brand/ amounts...........she's 70 #, maybe a little less. i'm giving her pumpkin with her food, which is carbs. funny, i think it may be helping substantially. not 100% sure yet; doesn't seem to be hurting - giving her about a cup with her food 2x day.
thanks for the help!

probiotics and digestive enzymes will help, as will grain free because that provides sugars which fungus feeds on .
fungus is not a bacteria --

As carmspack mentioned, for yeast, you want high protein, low carbs and starches.

The pumpkin is adding fiber, and many use it for stool quality, though it's not helping the yeast. The pumpkin is also adding vitamin A I suspect, which can help with IgA deficiency perhaps.

With that amount of fish oil, you should be adding about 800 IU of natural mixed tocopherol vitamin E, like Twinlabs Super E Complex.

The cyclosporin, you can get it cheaper as generic form, by putting your dog on his own individual health plan at Walgreen's and get a script for it. Better if you don't have to do that.

Doxycycline, and maybe an antifungal would work better and be safer than the cyclo. The doxy is used as an immune suppressant and anti-inflammatory in this case, instead of the cyclo. I would try True CMO Cetyl Myristoleate as an immune system anti-inflammatory, in addiiton to the doxy, but it sounds like you got a new script today.

Remember, one of the side effects of cyclo is increased yeast infections, and might be true for pred too, don't know off the top of my head.
