Fingers crossed these meds do the trick
Thank you. By chance do you know the name of the medication Ki is on?@Cassi
Hi. So sorry you have been having issues with your girl also. This looks a lot what my Ki looks like. She was put on a new med about three weeks ago and we are down to every other day. Her skin is staying clear. We will probably always have to medicate our girl but are hoping to maintain a pulse dose at either every third day or in bad times every other day. We are also on limited ingredients diet. It does take up to three months for allergens to leave their system if it is a food alllergy. So don't give up too soon with the diet.
@nfaerie I have been in touch with this company today AMAZING - hormone free, antibiotic free - just amazing. Ella will be trying REAL VENISON next - so if that's good then we should be good to try this. THANK YOU FOR THE RECOMMENDATION!!!!!!!!Ziwipeak does a venison wet food. Grain free.
Hello Everyone. I'm somewhat relieved to find this thread as my CoCo has been miserable since early December. The photos Pussiette posted looked exactly like CoCo during a terrible breakout. We have done steroids as well as antibiotics and they only seem to help temporarily. We have tried Ivermectin as well. Her diet is a limited ingredient venison and lamb wet food by Nature's Variety Instinct and her dry food is the limited ingredient rabbit formula. I did read that there was a coconut allergy and the dry food does have coconut in it. Her skin know has gone from the large bloody hives to what is almost like chicken skin. Like I have read in previous posts, there has been no change in anything (litter, detergent etc.) I'm going to talk to her vet tomorrow about some if the things surfaced here (Zyrtec, Terbinafine and the yeast on the toes). I'm just at my wits end and poor CoCo looks terrible, although she hasn't slowed down very much.
Was Izzy's condition similar to what Ella's was? Thanks for the help!!
