She doesn't have any problems in the ears. She has seasonal allergies and every summer her feet get bad, this is just the first time I've seen the red nails happen. She eats a grain-free salmon kibble. I tried to change up her protein source before with no luck. She hesitates to eat anything that isn't the salmon.

Thanks. I guess what I'm trying to determine is, if I don't see any improvement specifically in the nails, does that mean I need to move to the next level with an oral medication. Right now I'm just using an ointment. The skin has cleared up, it's just the nails that I'm concerned about. But I'm wondering would I see any improvement in the nails anyway, or will the discoloration stay there until that section of nail grows out anyway?

Hi all. Nala has a yeast infection on her paws and nails. Dark red between the toes, smelly, and she started to get a dark red ring around the base of all her nails. I did research, called the vet, and got a refill of Entederm ointment that I have been putting on her as well as bathing her with hexadine shampoo. Between the toes look better, but I'm curious about the nails. Should they clear up if they are getting better or will that red have to grow out with the nail? I don't know if I need to see the vet for an oral antifungal if the nails are still red... Anyone have experience with this? Vet isn't in yesterday or today, sop I'm waiting for a call back.

My pupster cracked a nail on her front paw straight across the middle and the vet had to cut it off pretty high up. She was bandaged up and I was told I could take the bandages off in a couple days. I took them off and all was dry and looked fine, but when she walked outside in the snow for a bit it opened up and started to bleed. So I had to rebandage it. Any idea how long it should take for the nail to heal enough that she can walk/run around on it like normal without causing it to open up again? The poor thing is DYING to run around and I can't let her off the leash. Left a message for the vet with this question but unfortunately not getting a response.

Choosing the Right Dog > American Staffordshire Terriers and American Pit Bull Terriers

If you're going to adopt a dog, a lot of pitties and amstaffs nowadays are mixed breeds (my "pit bull terrier" is an amstaff/american bulldog mix) according to our DNA test. Most of them are labeled as to what they most resemble but may have any combination of breeds in them. If you're going to a breeder, that's a different story. But there are so many out there that need homes so rescuing is definitely an awesome way to go. In that respect, they are all different. I know people who have very highly energetic pits and amstaffs, and ones who are couch potatoes. Some are too energetic for kids, or don't like other dogs, others are great with them. Mine is very low key most of the time, extremely affectionate, loveable, a lap dog, loyal, a little stubborn when she doesn't feel like doing what I ask, loves other dogs but is EXTREMELY excitable when she's around them and can't be calm, she just goes straight into play mode. She's the best dog I've ever owned. But like I said, there are so many personality differences that your best bet is to go through a rescue, maybe a dog that has been fostered so you can get a real feel of their personality outside a shelter setting.

Dog Health > Suggestions for dry, irritated paws

We are having allergy issues the past month or so. Nala is on Benadryl and constant paw cleaning when she comes in from the grass. We wipe down with a clean wet rag and dry. After one short romp around the yard her feet and ears go from normal to bright red. Lately the paws seem extra dry and are cracking and bleeding a bit during playtime. What can I put on her that won't irritate her already irritated paws to moisturize the skin?

Yes I think I will cut down on the washing for now and see how she makes out. I also just started her on an omega fish oil supplement for her skin (she already eats a grain-free salmon formula but figures she could use the added omegas). I have tried numerous socks/shoes but nothing stays on her feet because she runs around like mad. I am wondering how much it would cost to astroturf the backyard. laugh out loud

I feel so bad for Nala. Her paws are bright red. Last year we had a slight issue with this but with bathing her paws with hexadene shampoo twice a week and some allergy pills she was fine. I don't know if this year is an especially bad season but the past 3 weeks have been terrible. We are bathing her paws with the medicated shampoo and an oatmeal shampoo combo. Rinsing and/or wiping them down with a wet rag every time she comes in from outside. And she is on benadryl 3 times a day all as per the vet's orders. However they are still red as anything. Could we be washing/wiping too much? Would that irritate as well? I really don't want to have to put her back on prednisone, I hate steroids. But I fear if we go back to the vet that will be their next step. I have heard of dogs being given daily zyrtec. Anyone have any experience with that?
