I've been doing a bit of research this morning on the pills, cream & drops the vet has given us. (I found one recommendation for diaper cream and one for non-perfumed Neutragena hand cream, both for the area he was licking so much that the hives turned into little scabs. But, I'm going to think about that before I try it.)
And, I have had a look at Tucker's food. He's on: "WEST COAST CANINE LIFE Pre-Mix is made from 100% human quality and organic ingredients containing stone ground brown rice, barley and oats, alfalfa, carob, calcium, Acadian sea kelp, garlic, ginger, marjoram, parsley, oregano, rosemary and turmeric". (that's from their website). To that, I add meat, oil, vegetables, apple, cranberry juice, egg & then bake it.
I don't think the rice, oats or barley could be the problem, do you???
He does get treats that I use for training and I will see if they have corn or wheat in them. I will go back to baking his treats, though so I'm sure what he's getting.
I don't see any staining at the eyes. After a bath, I check his ears & they've always been fine, except for this last time. I really do think the yeast developed because of the hives which he had all over his body, including inside his ears.
Thanks you guys!!!
