My dog had a bacterial skin infection. It required veterinary care and would not have resolved without prescription medication.
I'm all for avoiding pharmeceuticals whenever possible, but dogs' skin is very delicate. For that matter, so is the ecosystem; we (humans)have been overusing and misusing antibiotics for way too long for me to feel comfortable using somebody else's leftovers on my dog without medical supervision.
I don't have to agree with my vet about everything, but I do have to rely on somebody else's experience and education when my dog needs medical attention.
