I just need to vent to someone that can relate to what I'm going through. My sweet 9 year old bully is dealing with what may be the most frustrating thing that has happened in his long, healthy life. About 3 weeks ago, I noticed a small crusty spot near his tail pocket. I wasn't too alarmed, just used some Mal-A-Ket wipes and Gold Bond on it. But it seemed to grow a bit. I had the Vet look at it, and they said that it "might" be a fungal infection (not ringworm, but similar) and immediately put him on oral Ketoconazole. Within about a week, he was so lethargic that he didn't even want to get out of bed, much less eat. I took him off it, within a day he snapped back. But the infection is still there. The Vet tried Tresaderm. But about the third time I put it on, it seemed to burn so bad that he ran in circles for about 5 mins. Luckily, I have some Neo Predef powder and it has been a god send to stop the itching and burning when he needs it. Now I've taken him off the Tresederm too. But after looking more online, I'm thinking it's a yeast infection (a bit crusty and dry, with somewhat of a yellow tint in parts). It's accompanied by a little redness between some of his toes too. Now I'm going to try Malaseb shampoo, and continue the Neo Predef. Using the Neo Predef about 3 times a day (I hope that's not too much?), and during the night if he wakes me itching. I feel so bad for my baby. He seems fine, then suddenly begins "circling" as if it's really bothering him. Then he looks so sad, because I know he feels that he's worrying or not pleasing me. Worrying yes, but he is always my pride and joy. I'm trying everything that I know to do, but am getting a bit hopeless and frustrated. I just want him to be comfortable. Thanks for listening/reading. And any advice or encouragement is welcomed!
