Hi Sonya,

I wish there was... but the only SA group I've seen is a Yahoo group that's been in active for a long time :-(
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/SA_Addisons/

Ricky was diagnosed with SA Jan. 2010 and we're also having a really hard time trying to control this nasty disease!!

We don't get Ricky vaccinated and in the beginning we had him on Cyclosporine that stopped working. It's very frustrating because it seems it can get bad or clear up no matter what we do or don't do...

What are you doing to control Phils SA? Is he on any medication?

you could always start a seperate thread on here as a SA support group?

on a brighter note... Sonya!! Good to 'see' you on the forum again!! Would love to get together sometime and have a play date with the pups if/when you have time and Phil is feeling up to it!

I've been going crazy trying to figure out what is wrong with my havanese. I came across a website about SB which sounded exactly like what she's got, my vet couldn't seem to name it and said it was allergies as well. I've found some success with some bathing products but I'm interested in this study and would like to participate. She is 10 yrs old, it seems to have gotten worse as she's gotten older. As others have said it seems to subside and then rears its head again. I also believe it has to do with all the shots...I've not had her vaccinated with anything else in the past 2 yrs. I thought it was from the tick meds and quit that as well. Now, on holistic foods...feel I've tried just about everything. Luckily she doesn't seem too irritated by the scabs, probably bothers me more. Her smell is the worst however--so there are more baths!

Hello, I'm so sorry a out your dog! I hate this disease, I ended up going to UC Davis finally, where they diagnosed it... My dog as sooo textbook, I knew that he had SA before he went in. I do the bath treatments every 2 weeks and he is on that medicine ,it seems to go in cycles. Anyway please contact me if you need more info. He does not get any vaccinations except his rabies and yes, that sends him into a out break.

Oh...I've tried them both as well. I just can't believe the vets aren't familiar with this skin thing! Isn't it strange to you that we can find what it is by looking a little on the internet but our vets don't have any clue? I've just about given up on them. 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 do know this disease has been prevalent in Poodles for a long time, standard poodles..you might be able to gain some insight from one of their groups also..Yes, it is amazing what the vets don't seem to know at times. A good vet will however, find out!
