    Default Prayers for my Baby Duke please *UPDATE

    HI everyone
    I just wanted to ask for prayers for Duke.. I had posted about two weeks ago ( long story that Duke has developed Atopic Dermatitis and deep pyoderma)
    and basically has a bad skin infection. We have spent $1100 since April 15th and they finally got all the cultures back etc.. Duke is OK .. heart and lungs are good and his blood work is good but I am weaning him off prednisone , starting Atopica ( all which we can handle )

    but our poor little guy is very uncomfortable from the infection.. he scratches it open almost every other day. the vet called me late last night and now that they know exactly what it is they are treating it.. ( topical antibiotics and a shampoo we have to bathe him in every other day ) the dermatolgist swears it is the deep infection that was making him scratch.. please I sure hope so!

    I just feel so bad for him he is such a trooper never complains but I know he is so uncomfortable.

    Prayers needed that this medication work to clear it up.. !!

    Thank you

    oh guys.. Duke's infection seems to be clearing a little but the plaques are still so puffy and red.. please keep praying something works.. he is almost done prednisone. had to wean him off slow, taking atopica ( not sure of spelling ) taking gabapetin for itching and pain , zrtec. dear Lord.. just want my baby to be comfortable.
    he doesn't complain but it looks awful. I have never seen anything like this.. the vet ( dermatologist said to please be patient ) its hard..

    Poor baby. Sending positive vibes, hugs and kisses to Duke.

    We're going through a terrible yeast infection with Blue right now. He's also scratching like crazy which causes him to bloody his belly
    What I did was, take a bunch of Chris' Jockey (not Hanes because Hanes doesn't have 100% cotton) crew neck undershirts, cut out the arms and wrapped Blue in them. I made sure to keep the shirt loose so his skin can breath, as yeast likes damp, and warm places.
    So now, when he scratches, at least he's not cutting himself. In the few days he's been wearing them (and man does he hate these shirts), the scabs from where he scratched himself raw are already healing up.
    Here's a pic so you can see what I'm talking about with the shirts.

    thank you so much.. the problem with Duke is the infection is right if you can picture behind his ear on his neck line. I have cut sweatshirts etc.. what I finally did was buy a child's turtleneck! LOL
    but I think because its right on the crease it irriates him.. I appreciate the suggestion.. just want him to be comfortable. sitting here at work PRAYING he didn't rip open today.

    Good Luck with getting the yeast cleared up!!

    Keeping my fingers crossed he hasn't ripped it.

    Will pray for Blue...are you adding Apple Cider Vinegar to his food or water?
    ​You can drizzle 1 TBSP over his food or add to water bowl each day.

    RIP beloved boy.
