So Mia has had some skin issues for the past couple of months. Unfortunately I don't have any pics right now to show you but they are round pimple like bumps (some bigger than others) that were originally all over her body and then after a week or so, started to gather on the back of her neck, between her shoulders. The bumps came literally overnight and they're hard to see unless you're standing behind her at a certain angle. The hair is a little raised where the bumps are.
At one point they got a little crusty, seems like the flakiness has died down a bit. A couple of them will turn pink, eventually scabs and falls off. She's not excessively itchy but she does scratch her neck and her sides from time to time.
No licking of paws, no biting, no dandruff or flakiness anywhere else on her body.
She is on a PMR diet.
We have already done two skin scrapings, negative for mange. Vet doesn't think it is food allergy related either. I asked if it could be a heat rash and she doesn't think so either.
Tried antihistamines for 10 days, no change. Currently doing medicated baths 2-3 times a week and not much has changed. Granted, it hasn't gotten worse but I can't figure out what's causing it.
I ran into a woman today with her english staffy and we were trading skin allergy stories of our dogs and she said her dog had a similar if not the same thing and suggested I ask my vet about Surolan. Its a topical cream and she said it worked wonders for her dog.
My vet is away until weds so while I wait for her to call me back, I figure I'd ask you guys if you have ever used this cream before. Were there any side effects? Was it effective? What did you use it for (what were you trying to treat)?
Thanks in advance!
