Hello! A few months ago I made a post for my dog wall-e looking for help w/ his skin problems. I posted a few pictures and the people that answered were correct and it was confirmed by a vet that it was just dry skin.
Lately, though I've noticed and even my sister has pointed out that it looks worse than just dry skin. I've continued washing his skin with the prescribed soap and rubbing some coconut oil on his coat to keep it nice and not dry, but it doesn't seem to be improving. I've even treated the carpets for fleas dropping salt and sucking up flea powder to kill the darn things when I vaccum the salt up. He continues to scratch though making his skin under his belly worse.
What really scared me today, though, is that my sister told me it looks like signs of cancer (like liver spots on people) and should remove him from my room because of my computer being on most of the day (the room is small) and putting him downstairs where there's lots of fresh air.
His food is beneful kibbles, he likes it a lot and it's the only kind of brand I feed him after learning how sick it can make a dog by switching it's food up a lot. I take him on three walks a day one in the morning, afternoon and evening before bed. All ranging between half a mile or less.
I also bathe him once to twice a week and have started a new regime of cleaning his ears out twice every two weeks. The normal temperature in my area is either humid, cool, or a mix of both (I live in hawaii). I have an air condition in my room that seems to be collecting dust, which I've cleaned but am not sure how much dust is in places I cant see (it's on most of the day and sometimes at night). The best place in my house is on the porch with my plants where most of the cool air flows through from outside but there are alot of bugs too.
We don't have a back yard so his outside time is during our walks or whenever he wants to chill on the porch.
Sorry if this is alot I just want to give an honest recollection of how wall-es days normally go. I'm kind of hoping that someone will tell me it's just a skin condition and I shouldn't be worried about cancer. He's going to the vet for a check up this month for sure I'm getting financial aid and god dammit i'll spend every dime on him. I love my dog.
I hope someone replys with something that'll either put my mind at ease or warn me of possible danger so i can catch it before it gets worse. Thank you if you've read this far. I'll share some pictures of wall-e now.
