    ketoconazole 200 mg tabs

    My vet gave me this prescript and I'm debating whether or not to fill it because I don't want her to be dependent on it to curb the infection or worse yet, have her have a bad reaction to it.

    I've never given it to a dog, but lots of times to humans! I'd be curious to find out the answer to this one.

    Yes, I have used it several times to control a flair up of yeast on my boys face. it works wonders and I highly recommend it to get it under control. After you've controlled the yeast problem, discontinue the use until the next flair up. I always keep it on hand for my bully. I had no problem with any side effects.

    Vegas just got off this medication along with an antibiotic, he was on it for 3 weeks due to a bad yeast/bacterial infection. The meds worked great. Vegas had no reactions to either meds.

    So did you give it to Bella? any reactions?? Just wondering. She wont become dependent on it, it is just a little extra boost to get rid of the infection. Vegas is almost 4 and had to only be on it a few times.

    Yes if there is an infection certainly treat it, the colony must be defeated before you can practice prevention

    Great to know guys, thanks. I'll fill the prescription today. I have a scheduled vet appointment today so maybe I can get another prescription and stockpile the meds. I noticed the other day that 3 of her paws are swollen and are oozing puss. I found that they're cysts. Poor thing she barely walks around, I have to keep her doped up on Benadryl to keep her comfortable and she sleeps all the time. Can't take her for walks or anything, it sucks.

    Ouch. Once you get the infection control you need to focus on whatever the cause is.

    Both those symptoms scream allergy to me. What are you currently feeding .... always a good place to start although there are environmental causes too.

    kazzy, we're feeding her Natures Variety's Instinct Raw boost Duck formula. She had these issues when we got her about 7 weeks ago. We know she was on a crummy diet beforehand and Natures Variety came highly recommended to help clear her issues up. But so far, although we see slight improvement, its not happening quick enough. We have a 25lb bag that should last into March if at that time she hasn't shown significant improvement I'm gonna do the completely raw diet.
