  • Skin Question

    I have a client who adopted a 13 year old schnauzer just over a year ago. About 4 weeks ago he was chewing his skin like he had allergies. She herself was taking some kind of medication, I dont remember what it was, she said since she takes it she thought it would work for him, I am guessing it has to do with allergies or Im not sure. But after that he began to get ( I dont know the spelling) Ceriussis? or Siriussis? and after he got that something with his spine is happening and if you touch him he snaps at you and he has three chiropratic adjustments to help him. The vet has given her some medicated shampoo that helps with his skin. Since he is so old, she is thinking of putting him down if he doesnt get better with another adjustment. Just wondering if yall know of anything that might help?..

    he probably was biting at himself out of pain, not allergies. Have they done xrays to find out what might be the problem?

      I couldn't tell, is she giving him her medication? If she is she needs to stop immediately and inform the vet! It does sound like this poor fella may need a work up to find out what is wrong, I wonder if she will be willing to shell out that kind of money for a dog this age that she hasn't had very long? Let us know.

        It was some kind of medication she was taking and she thought it would help him out, but it didnt, it made his spine all weird. She has gone to the vet and got those adjustments and she has all sorts of procedures, (aromatherapy, acupuncture) it just all happened 3-4 weeks ago. She says he paces back and forth then sleeps all day. There is a shampoo the vet has given her that you would bath him in every week or so, seems to be working. But his skin has lots of gooey stuff on it, I tried to get it all off and massage his skin, but if you do anything to ruff he snaps at you, she mentioned something about his hips too were bad and if you touch them he snaps, but he never did when I rubbed his back.

          Is the condition you're talking about cirrhosis of the liver? That could have been caused by giving him medications that aren't intended for dogs, or medications given in too high of dosage. If he has cirrhosis of the liver, he might get better, or he might not. It depends on how much and what type of damage was done.

          For the pain, seeing as he's getting chiropractic care, she might look into accupuncture, too.

            I think she means cyriosis of the skin.

              We bathed a lab today that has had very mad dandruff and oily hair. I guess she chews a lot too. She has no sores though, but she does shed a lot. We used the Davis benzole peroxide shampoo on her first, than mixed the Max. Chlor. and Miconazole and let that sit on her too. Her coat looked better than it ever has. I thought she looked like she had cyriosis too, because there was so much dandruff.

                I have never heard of cyriosis. It's not in any of my text books, and I Googled it and still came up blank.

                Could you mean psoriasis?

                    Sorry Helly,
                    It is psoriasis. I didn't think that was the right spelling, but for some reason that is what my computer kept spelling, so I thought maybe it was right, wrong!

                        To get back to the org. post; owners allergies/and self medicating the dog w/her meds.It's bad "ju,ju" to give dogs an antihistamine combined w/a discongestant.Dogs can tolerate a very high dose of antihistamine;but Not a decongestant,period.Sounds like this might be the case.

                          she said, whatever medication she gave him screwed up his spine. she also said if this next adjustment doesnt help him, hes in so much pain sometimes, she is going to put him down.
