|Blue's Best Pal||
so i have a 6 year old male GSD. he has never had any issues until recently. he came back from the kennel a few months ago and was itching. the itching eventually turned in to a rash. his back and belly were splotchy red and i took him to the vet. they gave him an antibiotic injection, some anti-itch pills and a medicated shampoo. he improved for a week or so and then it's come back. the vet gave him another shot and some anti-yeast pills. it is now only on his belly, and not as bad as before but the poor guy is still itching.
he's on a flea pill and i haven't seen any fleas on him. is it possible he has one that is causing issues?
any other suggestions? I can't keep going back to the vet as it's expensive and I'd like to try some other paths if possible.
he's always been on the same food, Natural Balance Ultra. Should I try another protein source? Do allergies start happening later in life? I just can't think what it could be. Thanks!
