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.

Since the beginning of April this year Anubis gets Eczemas every few weeks. They are not located at the same spot everytime and at the moment he has two, one on each side of his body. Also he has itchyness on his ears and sometimes on the side of his body so he is scrattching alot at the moment.
I went to the vet several times and he got medication evertime, after it it got better for a short time to just start again. I asked the vet what could be the cause for this and he just said that it could have many reasons. Lol what am I supposed to do if I don´t know where it comes from.
He definately has no fleas. Has anybody an idea what could be the reason for such tings?

My husky has Zinc Responsive Dermatosis. No vet knew what it was until I found it on the internet and then it was confirmed by skin biopsy. here's a link about it. Google also has some good images. There is no cure but zinc supplements manage the outbreaks. I use Zinpro and Prozyme combination mixed in some wet food.

It really could be a lot of different things but I'd thought I mention this one since very few vets know about it. My husky was about 2 years old before he showed signs and apparently the disease waxes and wanes. It is also more noticeable during the shed cycles.

Ok then it seems Anuibs has the same problem. Do the symptoms disappear as long as you give the dog additional zinc or are they just reduced.

Mostly disappear, mine still has occasional outbreaks of lessions. I would recommend a skin biopsy to confirm as too much zinc for a healthy dog (not suffering from this disease) can be toxic over extended use.
