|I would suggest a return visit to the vet! If you went to your own Doctor and he prescribed something that did not work for you, most certainly you would return to him and have more testing, etc., to come up with another solution.
For some reason, people tend to think vets are miracle diagnosticians and can magically tell with only a look what is going to work for every illness or condition. At the same time, many owners refuse to allow further testing so the vets generally try a more common solution to the problem and assume the client will be back if it doesn't work.
I LOVE my vets and consider them excellent vets but there are times when we DO decide to try something and see if it works BEFORE going on to further testing, etc. If the first treatment works, GREAT! If not, it is now time to dig a little deeper, maybe do some skin scrapings, cultures, etc., which may cost a bit more but will ultimately find out what the problem is and how to cure it.
I would strongly suggest you contact your vet and give them another go at it. If you go to a different vet, most likely they are going to try the exact same drugs first, and you will be back at square one.
