Just an FYI, the breeder of one of my dogs, Janet Hicks, has quite a bit of information (including photos) about this condition on her website.

I'm in northern CA too, just outside of Sacramento. Hope it isn't SA but if it is, it can be managed from what I've read.

Hi Sonya,

Sorry to hear that Phillip may have SA!

It's good your going to Davis and seeing a
Dermatologist so you'll know for sure.

My Ricky was in the Havanese SA study and
diagnosed with SA 2 years ago. Our Dermatologist
recommended Cyclosporine, Douxo Seborrhea
shampoo & Micro-emulsion Spray.

I hope Phillip doesn't have it but if he does Janet Hicks
& Mary Ellen Vickery are great!! Also their is a Yahoo
support group where you can get lots of info.
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/SA_Addisons/

Please keep us posted!

Tess & Kylie
Ricky we miss you

I'm sorry to here your Phillip may have SA. Please do contact Janet she has so much knowledge and can help you. There is or was a year ago a study and for $40 a sample can be sent to a research study. Again I hope you find your answers soon
