|So I was just reading on Vidt's website about the Triad disease, and that its a mix between bacterial and yeast infections AND allergies. It seems as though he was saying that if all three arent treated at the same time they will basically just perpetuate. I wonder if that is what could cause all the allergy meds to not work? since even if hes been on antibiotics, hes never been treated for yeast (other than me, at home, feeding raw apple cider vinegar. He gets it daily in his water). Essentially he's never been treated for all three of those things only two at a time. Which I would think would have caused the elimination diet to fail because he had the other issues, and if you look at the images of the dogs from his page that is exactly what my dogs skin looks like, at his worse it was even more so, its gotten better since the vinegar but still got the other issues. also read they could be allergic to himself. I am most definietly going to ask for the allergy and yeast scraping, I wonder though how they would determine if he is allergic to himself? Then it would be getting his swollen hock issue diagnosed and treated. The atopica was much too expensive for us to sustain on a regular basis but I wonder if it would be cheaper if he were to show improvement on a not so strong drug if all three issues were being addressed?
Sorry I am thinking out loud and just need to write this all out to work it out completely. And my husband is SO not okay with hearing about it all. Its kind of a good thing he'll be gone for a good bit and I can get this all sorted, hopefully. As far as Tintle's drug, does that help the Hock syndrome? I thought the OMega threes were suppose to help that?
