Help-my Rottwailer with skin problem
I got a 4 months rottwailer as house warming gift from fren. First few days was great...but....
i have always wanted to have my own pet dog, so, i was very excited to receive 'Soda' (my pet) as my new house member,this is my first time owning this breed.
After few days, soda started to have problems like:
bleeding on feed, head (was told it was caused by skin rash--soda scratched and cause bleeding),later the rash turns really bad, soda was bleeding all 4 legs, heads..i was really depressed.
I have no clue how this can happend, i kept soda in very big steel cage and take it for walk n poo during morning n evening,bath it every few days...
After visiting pet shop, was told some possibilities:
1. food-i've replaced wit more expensive food since
2. shampoo-also replaced.
These are things i've done to help soda:
1. wash wound with dentol-later was old this will make skin rash worse.
2. applied meds (cream) but later replaced with spray type (more expensive) as advice by pet shop.
Soda wound seems healed (dry), but it looks really ugly now (looks like dogs from movie i am legend), with 'dry scalp' all over his body, and smell too. Now i notice his hair start to fall, a lot, when i brush my hand on his body, hair came out a lot.
What should i do? did everything i did before even helping soda? i really dunno, please give me advice... what's next? Thanks for reading....
