Help please! My 2 year old Doberman is suffering from a skin disease..
My fiancé just returned from the vet over the weekend as our 2 year old Maya has been scratching and nibbling at her nose and paws which has effected her skin with discolouration, skin lightening and hair loss. Originally we thought that it might be her food so we changed it but this skin issue has continued. So we brought her to the vet and his response was that this is a disease that is not curable, that is a constant itch she can't scratch and we should consider putting her down. I was in shock! I realize this is a level of discomfort for he but she is so young, full o life and of course we love her so much. We would like to know if anyone has experienced something similar to see if we can try some other remedies to help reduce the flaring and/or inflammation.
I should also note that she has some discolouration and dryness of the skin on her back as well.
I appreciate any help you can provide.
Thanks so much!
