Thank you all so much for your replies, she has had skin problems before which to be honest began when we got a kitten around four years ago and the kitten came with fleas which were passed on to the dog, she started with flea dermatitis, which cleared up and they are both treated religiously with advantage which is the only thing that seem to work, frontline was rubbish.
She has then been to the vets many times with lumps that appeared on her feet which look like little lumps which you would think you can burst but do not.
The vet a few months ago diagnosed a yeast infection and said to use a prescription wash we started every two days, then weekly then fortnightly, and they said it was clearing up nicely.
We then went back to the vets on Monday and a different vet said that the yeast infection is bad and that the lumps on the feet look like sebaceous cysts and that we should have been told about steroids before and that we should change her food to the
royal canin hypoallergenic food, gave us a higher dose shampoo and skin drops.
I just cant see how after the amount of times we have been to the vets they have changed their minds so many times on what we should do or what it may be.
I just want her to be able to eat a good food and the vet said we can only feed this and water nothing else not chicken or fish or anything.
As far as I can tell the only way forward would be to change to this diet and see if it works and introduce different foods as many of you have suggested.
I wonder how we will know if it is the steroids and shampoo helping or the food change?
Also what are peoples thoughts on the vet saying only prescription diets are truly hypoallergenic?
Thank you so much for reading. xxx
