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.
Check out Ricky
