    So if Gracie has yeast infection in her ears that could cause butt scooting?

    No, but if she has it in her vulva area or under her tail, yes. When females mature they can have creases around thei vulva, and the only way to itch it is to scoot. Unlike most dogs or cats they cannot reach to lick it, (thank you). Since they cannot clean themselves (again thank you) you must keep those folds clean and bacteria free. Two of my girls squat low (pretty much sitting in their puddle) so i clean them constantly.

    Usually in the ears they will rub their ears on furniture or carpet, or do a head shake twitch, like they got a bug in their ear or something is in it.

    Nigel used to have yeast and cysts around his tail, it was slimy and Very itchy, sometimes when we would clean the area it would bleed. My vet gave me TrizCHLOR but he beefed it up with antibiotics and cortisone in there, it worked great for him! Poor little Cooper, he's been through the mill lately :/

    I took coop to vet. Got an allergy test done he got 2 shots of antibiotic and a steriod shot. Says I have been taking good care of him n his butt looks way better told me to keep doing what I am doing and he didn't give me anything for it. Tested his toes. Said his toes, he doesn't think are cysts. They took a sample n are doing culture on them. they scraped and and looked at it under microscope and that is how they know is it bacteria and the culture will tell more. Since he was red between every toe is why he was thinking more of an allergy related and bacteria infection. So they gave me oitment for them. Wrote it all down so I didn't forget!!
    . His scabby things on back n neck are also from allergies they think. I will get allergy test result in a week or 2. They said his tail pocket probably won't grow the hair back but he said it looks good n I will have to watch it cuz it will be a reocurring issue. Also said I'm just going to have my hands full and allergies are going to be a big issue for coop. He could tell just by looking at him and with the toe thing n the scabby thing. His face was a little red when we went in n vet said he noticed right away. Ears look greats!!! I did the witch hazel on tail last night because it was looking better and it was helping so I just used it again and the gold bond...and it is looking better and better every day. He don't mind the witch hazel but he whines and growls at me when I put the gold bond on! He is a tired boy now after the vet.

    @2BullyMama so if I didn't give benedryl today and he only had it yesterday morning the allergy test should be fine right????

    I have now spent over $1300 in about a months time on test for Coop! shhhh we will not be telling the hubby lol

    Thanks for everyone caring so much about Cooper and giving me great advice it means a lot to me that I am not the only one who cares about my baby!

    Glad you got some answers! Glad things are getting better! Hoping the list of allergies is minor and things that are easy to avoid! I know this has been tough but things willl get better once you get some answers! Let me know if there is anything I can do! We are going in 2months for the test!

    Good news. I'm sure that money wise it stings but what you wouldn't do for your baby? Have you considered raw feeding for him? It is usually the best for dogs with allergies.

    You know I have boggled that option in my mind here and there....I have a 2 year ols and 7 year old and don't want the germies around them with the raw food..... I also considered the dehydrated raw..... I have him on fromm right now and his face looks great and no more tears stains..... i think the allergies that are causing the toes, and scabby things are from environmental allergies but now 100% sure. I will see what his allergy test says and maybe raw will be an option!! Is that what you feed Usko..... and is Usko biggiesmall brother cuz i think i saw some one say that and he looks a lot like him....what a cutie!!!

    Thank You! I was trying to wait to. I told the vet I wanted one done today and he said he would recommend it too.... and I said if I need another done later that is fine. I went to a new vet my mom took Gracie to yesterday and I think this is the winner!! he is very good and the allergy test was 280 instead of 400 that is was at the other vet. I went to pet smart after and they asked what vet I went to and I named the 3 I have gone to and they said the one I went to today is awesome and pet smart uses them for all their vet stuff and they have a very good rep. He checked coop over so good. he still weighs about 41-42 pounds but at least he hasn't lost... I am thinking he might have lost some and is now gaining a little now with the fromm. At first the scale said 38 and I bout i said wow he lost almost 5 lbs. and then I put him on there again and it read a different number and stayed at that number after 3 times of trying lol.

    Vet also recommended the allergy meds to like benedryl and zyrtec. Coop is so tired now he went in the bedroom and slept in his bed.... he never lays in that he always lays in my other dogs bed that is about too small for him !

    That is funny, but for sure Usko and Biggie has the same Champion dog in their pedigree that even looks like them. If you google Merriveen make My Day, you can see a picture of him. World is really getting small.
    I've fed Usko raw since he was about 7 moths old. He never liked kibble and was starting to show signs of allergies. I took the plundge then and would never go back even though because of his bladder stones the vet wanted to but him on Hill's prescription kibble. He'd probably starve himself before eating that. He loves his food now and is doing great! It's funny, but it's nice to see Usko waiting for his food instead of looking at you like "you got to be kidding"!
    You know better what to do when you get the results of the allergy test. I hope there is an answer to all his troubles.
