Need help with Yorkie Skin condition

I have taken my dog her vet. He has ruled out mites. He doesn’t really know what it is. The only other thing to do would be to take her to a doggie dermatologist which is very expensive and far away. She has had this skin condition for almost a year now that has progressively gotten worse. I’ve tried googling, dandruff shampoo, Jax n Daisy shampoo and lotion, triple antibiotic, aquaphor.... nothing works. My question is if anyone has seen this kind of skin condition before. My poor Lily has almost lost all her hair, has scaley, flakey skin. She’s gone from a beautiful yorkie to looking like a Chinese crested.

IMO you need that doggy dermatologist. After a full year and nothing you have done is working, its past time for that consult.

I agree! How could you have let it get so bad? Your poor dog must have been VERY uncomfortable for a long time!!

Has your own vet tested her for thyroid conditions, addisons, cushings, diabetes, allergies? All these conditions can cause skin conditions and hair loss. Aside from those suggestions, I would highly recommend seeing the specialist. Is it possible for the dermatologist to do the consult via web cam? In more remote areas, I know that this can be done.

It may be an expensive visit, but likely your questions will be answered with a single consult and follow up. I'm certain that frequent trips to your own vet and the remedies you've tried already have added up.

I wish you luck and a speedy resolution to your poor baby's skin and hair loss issues. Please let us know how you make out.

I've seen dogs skin go haywire due to being sensitive to one or the other ingredient in their food. What foods and treats are you feeding her?

Is she itchy? Does she smell horrible by one or two days after you give her a bath?

Did the vet check her thyroid levels? Was she checked for pyoderma?

I'm going to echo that your best bet is to get her to a vet dermatologist. Not doing so your just going to set her up for skin infections which will end up being more expensive in the long run.
