ok im late to this but heres my 2 cents. doesnt have to be the protein that is causing this. you are giving many supplements also. not saying they are bad but when tracking down an allergy you have to start from the ground up and if its getting worse it maybe that you are still giving it something that is causing it or could also be it will take a few days to get out of the system. with bullies you have to look at the tiniest thing from treats to supplement to food to even heartworm meds. id stop everything and just feed the food. if it gets better cool then you know its one of the supplements if not then you need to keep searching. until you stop the cause all you do is treat the symptoms and they wont get better. the vet has already prescribed stuff so i wont go into treatment for it. in the future i use chloraseb flush that i get from entirely pets to treat ear yeast and bacteria as you can wipe out the ear and put it in the canal to. malaket wipes can be used to wipe the ear and then squeezed down into the canal also. i like duoxo for yeast and face folds and you may also need to put an anti fungal on it to or maybe wipe some lotrimin powder in it as well. i hope your baby gets better.
@cowsmom thanks for the reply, I'm almost positive that this arose from the fruit/veggie mix. I have been giving other supplements for well over a month but when I gave the veggies it literally happened over night, I think it make have been too rich in sugar which I have been reading yeast feeds on. What do you think? Have you ever heard or used the cream my vet prescribed mupirocin? It was a bit pricey $48 for a tiny tube.
Okay, I'm no expert by any means, but I'm thinking you might ought to go back to the where you were before this all started. Keep treating her face and ears, but go back to the patties until it all clears up and then move forward, one new food at a time. The slow introductions will hopefully make it easy to see what foods triggered this reaction. Hope your baby is better soon!

What do you guys recommend for an anti fungal shampoo?
salmon oil, I noticed that his eyes were less red and his ears didnt have little red bumps in them anymore and he stopped shaking his head. So it could be the salmon oil as well - or like others have said, any of the other supplements that she might be allergic to.
I discontinued using Desitin on Maximus ever since he began wiping his face all over my furniture and destroyed all of it - now I have furniture stained with Desitin ointment! No Thanks! I'll stick to Trichlorz-4 wipes or the Duoxo pads, which is all nothing more than Chlorhexidine and you can buy a jug of it yourself and make your own wipes.
Just saw this feed now, hope everything worked out okay with you pup.
I use the Animax on Tonka since he has bad allergies and his folds get irritated and wet and we really like it! I have never tried the stuff you were prescribed. Has anyone heard negative things about the 1800petmeds? I would maybe look into that. My vet told me to be wary of that-something about not always knowing what was in the product or bad experiences with it. I can't say for sure but we were directed to foster & smith instead. Just something to look into.
