He does not get any vaccinations except his rabies and yes, that sends him into a out break.
Sonya! I am so glad you have found help and a way to manage this disease!
And remember if you ever want to get together for a playdate, we would LOVE to get to know both of you better!!

I appreciate seeing here that I'm not the only one with a havanese with this problem, I don't know why I didn't check this site out earlier. Hopefully with enough input from others there may be some sort of help on the way.
I totally understand your frustration with vets and this disease!!
Before Ricky was diagnosed with SA he had a lot of infections around his mouth and we tried many antibiotics without success.When I told my vet at the time about the Havanese study for SA her response was Ricky doesn't have SA. I couldn't believe she said that knowing that the only way to diagnose SA is with a biopsy :-(

There is a Yahoo SA group that has lots of information
You may find that what works for one dog might not work for another so it's good to have many options and try different things…

I do suggest getting a biopsy and diagnosis so you're sure...and maybe consider seeing a dermatologist.

Ricky we miss you

Thank you for posting this! I have been absolutely out of my mind crazy trying to figure out what Toby has! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! You have no idea how relieved I am that I can now get him tested and treated. This skin condition appeared at about 1 year of age and has gotten so much worse over the past year and a half. He has alopecia, scaling on his ears and trunk, loss of hair on tail, and a very red and scaly belly. It KILLS me. Every time I pet him I am frustrated. His coat was so fluffy and beautiful as a puppy. The few bits of hair that have grown back on his back are very wire-y and his coat has turned from apricot in some parts to now darker brown - it used to be all pristine black and white. He is one of the worst cases I've seen now that I've had a chance to pursue the pictures on google images. My poor poor love. I hope help is coming. Thank you Havanese Forum! Blessings and Love to you and your angel pups! They are the best dogs in the world and I am heartbroken that Toby is suffering.

Sorry to hear your Toby has been having such a rough time. But I do know a few people with dogs with SA, and they all say that with proper treatment, their dogs have done very well. I hope the same is true for Toby and you!!!

I, too, hope that your sweet Toby will now be on the road to better health! It is too hard when our little guys are sick!
