Hi all!

I'm in desparate need for help/advice/recommendation

I have 2 dogs at home, a male and a female.

Recently, the female dog got infected with some kind of fungal infection. Started with under the jaw/chin/neck area... it got so itchy till she scratched herself till bleeding.

Went to the first vet who said she got some kind of food/environmental allergy which resulted in itchy skin which then was scratched till bleed and got infected with fungus. Was given the cone collar to prevent her from scratching further and some medicine.

didn't work. she kept scratching despite the collar and she got really agitated with the itchiness...it also started to smell really bad (due to the fungus). tried changing the diet to the expensive vet recommended types but also didn't help. went back and forth with this vet for 2-3 months (vet said this kind of allergy need long time to recover).

finally got tired and helpless looking at the poor dog, so went to 2 other separate different vets (2-3 months for each vet) but same result...

the itch still there, can see the fungal infection (black patch of powdery like substance which gives off a very very foul smell) and it spread from neck to the front legs and now underbelly...

i'm out of ideas. it's getting pretty bad and the smell is so so so very bad now till i want to puke... she's always itchy and scratches herself and sometimes she'd somehow get off the colar and end up biting her own legs (the infected part) till bleeding.

how can i help her????

Can someone recommend a good vet/medicine or any good advice at all? I'ts almost 1 year already and I can't seem to be able to find any solution!!!

The other male dog is perfectly fine, no issues at all even though they goth stay the same place, eat the same stuff, drink the same water.

sad to hear tat...

1. avoid chicken diet.
2. i used diesel to wipe their bodies. used diesel to soak their feet. Wipe of excess and let it dry. Let diesel dry out for a couple of hours and then bathe them.
3. for bacterial spots, i used disinfectant gel n sometimes switched to minyak kapak to directly kill bacterias (for external use)
4. bath often and sun dry the dogs. Do not use harsh chemical for bathing.
5. trim their nails. and long furs.
6. keep their area cleaned, dry and airy.
7. Sterile ur dog house (if any).

gud luck!

Yea, sometimes I feel quite compelled to use some strong stuff to kill off the yeast/fungus... really cannot tahan liao...

mine did!

n no more re-infection.

must avoid chicken.

bathe as often.

i changed d disinfectant dressing as often as every few hours. infected zones were shaved n wrapped wif disinfectant. changed every few hours.

keep it dry in between n let it breathe.

have to be very hardworking n diligently change it.

Ouch..I would have brought them to different vets in few months time. Really pity your dog that it went on for one year

And I do recommend vpac clinic in kuchai lama, they are good at what they do

Diesel? That doesn’t sound good

I’d try cleaning with apple cider vinegar - 1:1 mixed with water, natural and works wonders on yeast infections etc

Vet you can try Hands N Paws @ Merchant Square (assuming you’re in KL), best I’ve found so far.

I'm not sure where it's selling. But at the very least, you know what skin disease it's called. Maybe now you can bring it up to the vet and have them prescribe medication, or go to the pet shop to get it.
