didn't want to hijack your thread on what sounds like it may be great !! crossing fingers that it will work so that we can all rest easier and get it too..



just bought the selsun blue..and plain yogurt

how much how often on the selsun blue? mix with water and soak feet?

and same with yogurt? teaspoon a day? more?


just searched it and found so far to soak her feet 2 times a week..leave lather on for 15 minutes then rinse..sound right?

cleaning the ear? have epi-Otic or vinegar and warm water?

where the stuff is only on her 2 back feet and only ONE ear smells funny not bad just not good...i cant see bathing her whole body in the selsun blue...and was just wondering if you just lather the stuff in your hands and run it on paws and leave it 15 minutes..2 times per week...or SOAK in mixture of warm water and selsun...

also...clean her ears? dont want to hurt her...we have 2 tubes of ketoconizole cream but obviously cant put that IN her  ears ...so use the epi otic or vinegar and water?

Oh sorry I missed it.   What I did was put Hanna in the bath.  Then take the selson blue on my hands and put it on her feet while.  I let them / it soak while she was in the bath (she had 4 itchy paws).    Then I  rinsed all the selson blue off and took her out of the tub.   Kinda like just washing inbetween her feet, but let them soak while you wash the other then rinse all completely.

i jsut used the selsun and wow it took the redness away almost instantly ..

i had searched it online and found it on dr fosters actually ...leave lather on for 15 minutes 2 times per week..

i just used the epi...she seems ok with it...i wiped out a little but didnt want to bother her too much...her ears arent red or swollen

~~ thank you sharon ~~ ...appreciate it much

also using benedryl for the itchies to make sure she leaves her paws alone to not furthur spread :)

i think i might wash her whole body with it later today Heather..jsut to make sure its not on her body or legs...

thanks a million for the selsun idea...

vet would have just put her back on prednisone and she doesnt need it...that med takes a SUPER toll on her..

i like my vet but sometimes they are a little too eager to just medicate instead of the answer for the long run...but dont have too many vet choices on island...

but VCA(our vet) rocks for most everything else...(open 7 days a week until 10pm) they have several vets...but mine is older and likes to use home remedies first...but hes away..the younger vets over there tend to just say here take these pills...

thank again heather & sharon ..i truely appreciate it

I hear you on the roids for dog - that is what my vet does.  Then Hanna blows up like a tick on them and looks like a boxer version of Jerry Lewis.  Not too cool when you are trying to train agility with a porker.   I also think they weaken her immune system, hence why I just ordered that herb from the UK to see if it helps.  Any natural remedy I will take anyday if it works over a med.
