Question: my dog has really dry bad skin, its a yeast infection or the mange or something, how do i get rid of it?
we was taking her to the vet but the bill got a lil high for my income. my mother and sister keep trying these prefabricated up home remedies, like washing her with tresemme giving her benedryl. bt she isnt getting better, she’s getting worse. And it doesnt make it superior that they feed her plateau food all the time, yes she is a blended breed dog, bt her skin is so sensative i dnt think she should be intake everything and doing all these human things. i need a lot of help, they wont listen to me.

Your vet is the only one who can make a correct diagnosis, and prescribe treatment.

    She needs to see a vet. Home remedies don’t work in cases where you don’t even know what the problem is, and shouldn’t be done without a vet’s guidance anyway.

    If you really can’t take her to the vet try cod liver oil in her food. This only works for dry skin so if it’s something worse then it won’t help. Vets can also prescribe anti-fungal shampoos to help.

    Also, just a note; three years ago a dog living down my road caught mange from a fox. It then broke into a neighbour’s yard and passed the mange onto the three cats and two dogs living there, and the owner then got sued for the five animals’ vet bills. If you can’t afford to treat one dog, what’s going to happen if it accidentally passes it on to others?

    Your dog shouldn’t be washed with Tresemme human grade shampoo. If your dog has sensitive skin, it should only be washed with a dog shampoo formulated for sensitive skin. Fish oils are very good for keeping a healthy coat/skin. If all else fails, a trip to the vet may be imminent in your near future.

    Well the only thing is to go to the vet

    Yeast infections have a bad odor, like old unwashed gym sneakers. I don’t think your dog has mange.

    If it is only dry skin, which is sort of doubtful, you can add fish oil to the dog’s diet every day. You can give the dog water packed sardines instead. Depending upon the size of your dog, you will have to guess how many to give. A small Toy dog would probably get one-half to one whole sardine, twice a week. Sardines are a good source of the omega fatty acids. feed them twice a week.

    Fatty, oily, fried or buttery human foods will give a dog pancreatitis and kill it, without prompt veterinary care.

    Benadryl is for pollen allergies. Tresemme shampoos and conditioners are only good temporarily for slightly dry hair. You don’t want to bathe her more than once a week unless directed to do so by your veterinarian, to use a medicated shampoo.

    If your dog has fleas, get rid of the fleas. You might try going online to and reading through all of the medicated shampoos there. One of them might fit your dog’s symptoms. Still, it is better to get a good diagnosis from a veterinarian and then be sure of getting the right medicated shampoo. Please try to get the dog to a veterinarian. Trying home remedies and guessing at cures will only leave the dog suffering while you waste time and money on things that don’t work.

    If your dog has hair loss that started at the base of the tail and traveled up her back toward her head, plus down the backs of her hind legs and across her belly and more, then what you are looking at is very likely a flea bite allergy. The skin is often rough and dark, sometimes like elephant hide. There may be open sores. It only takes one flea bite to set the allergic reaction off. Deflea your pets and your house and your yard. The dog will very likely need prescription medication (steroids) to stop the itching. Then the hair will grow back.

    There is a line of all-natural pet supplements that are guaranteed to work on yeast infections, mange, skin allergies, etc. The company is called Nzymes. since you don’t have alot of money, order 1 bottle of their Antioxidant Treats and they will send you two for the price of 1. I personally guarantee you will see great results by the time you finish the 1st bottle. Their products have worked on 10’s of thousands of dogs with yeast infections, skin conditions, joint problems, seizures, and more. Call them for advice if nothing else. Your vet won’t give you answers unless you pay for the visit. For less than the cost of a visit to the vet, you will clear your dogs problem up within a couple of weeks.

    And btw, you really need to wean him off of table scraps. And it is very important that the dog food you do feed him, has the nutrients he needs. Just check out the Nzymes products.
