Dog with Red Skin Eruption and Stomach Problems
by Gina Frias
(Guaynabo, Puerto Rico)
I have a 7 years old min schnauzer with skin and stomach problems.
I have given her the following foods Pro Plan, Science Diet, Sensitive Skni, Sentisitive Stomach, z/d, i/d, Infinia
Recently I took her to the vet who suggested I keep her on Ketochlor and Resicort to bathe her, benadryl for when she gets a reaction. They injected her with cortisone and to give her i/d.
Her bloodwork came normal. She mentioned something about the white blood cells but not to worry about it.
I could not leave her on i/d because she had eruption in her skin while on it. In the head and her eye gets real red, and her back side also real red.
Recently she was evaluated by a homeopathic consultant which change her diet to cooked homemade 3c salmon,1c pumpkin,and 1c carrots for a month. Give her cup of this food a day. With vit e which I havent been adding yet.
He also gave me some drops made of herbs. I have been at it for 9 days
Thanks for your help and information. What do you recommend I do food wise?
Do I continue with this cooked homemade diet or should I change completely?
Should I stick to it for a whole month or should I change it up on her?
He also recommended chicken, veal, or ground beef, potatoes.
