Sorry I never came back! darn life keeping me so busy these days!

Avari's back is okay - whatever she did to it the prednisone fixed and she has been fine. Except the itching!!! She has been battling this skin condition for so long and no one seems to have any idea what it is - nothing shows up in the skin scrapings, her undercoat is gone, she feels greasy and yucky, and she itches constantly!

So here's the run down
She is being bathed as needed (well not really because that would be daily that she feels greasy and smelly - like a dog not like yeast) in pyoben

grain free diet

no changes in the house as far as detergent etc.

No bacteria found in skin scrape - but still did 2 courses of antibiotics

Have been using tea tree oil on her (no help)

Nothing seems to help but the prednisone - she is good for a couple weeks after it - then she starts scratching again.

Any ideas? Thyroid? Suddenly developed allergy?
