This is most likely an endocrine problem and is likely related to vaccines. Did your pup get at around 4-5months?
Also...is he on flea and heartworm prevention? Spot-on?
The endocrine system is responsible for regulating hormones, when there is an upset in the balance, yeasts and other microbes take over as the immune system is gone awry dealing with the other invading pathogens in vaccines as well as pesticides....a dog's immune system does not reach full maturity until 6 months (min.). Pesticides are not medicine as it apprears to be presented (heartworm/flea/tick) and should only be used on a case by case basis in high outbreak area and only if temps have stayed above 56F for two consecutive weeks day and night - that is the only way for heartworm to reproduce....once that happens you can dose AFTER the fact...the best way to prevent HW is prevent mosquito bites - there are safe, natural pre-mix's at health food stores for this (some are not safe for cats).
In order to prevent a full system melt-down (leading to auto-immune disorder), you are going to have to detox the yeast (carb free diet - NO sugars - potato, peas, anything and NO food w/tapioca as the binder). Steroids will further supress the immune system - this can lead to cushings disease.
Keep up w/the coconut oil (1tsp. per 10lbs of body weight), RAW diet w/some anti-ox green leafy veg juiced and vit. C. There is homeopathic detox for the heavy metals in vaccines too as well as milk thistle to detox the liver of pesticides. Dandelion to assist the detox and flush the kidney's
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
