Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Excuse my absence   Wed Aug 13, 2014 10:15 pm

I would like to apologize for not being active like I was, but just recently I came across this medical problem I have with Luna, that our vet can't solve themselves. She should just say that I go to a skin doctor for dog. I found the only skin doctor for dogs and in Rhode Island. The problem that is not cheap, just the visit without any exam or med is 150. Before I take that leap I would like to know have anybody have ever face with this before

About a year ago Luna for some weird reason she started having patch in her face. We took her to the vet the next day. Didn't know I was supposed to put her on antibiotics and steroids. It works then he came back again.Again, we did the same thing. We must've gone back to the vet at least four or five time. Right now I'm running out of option I'm just hoping that somebody could please help me.

It might be demodex. Have you gotten a second opinion?

I have read that huskies in particular have an issue with absorption of zinc, zinc responsive dermatitis, which produces a scaly, scabbing, redness especially around the mouth area. Google it there are many pics that are similar to your dog. This was a concern of mine prior to getting Miya, had read up on different medical issues pertaining to huskies. Your vet has to scrape the area and do tests, apparently too little does that, but too much is bad as well. Good Luck with you pretty girl.
