I am debating on whether or not to bring Mr Grey to a dermatologist... Has anyone else been to one, and did it help?
Mr Grey's skin/allergy/eosinophilic granuloma issues have just not been getting better. Well, they get better temporarily but then they worsen again. I am starting to think the only reason I see any improvement is because of the Depo medrol shots and then when that wears off, he gets worse until he gets another shot.
My vet is very good and she has had us try several different things but so far nothing seems to work. Well I think switching to allergy foods did help some but aside from that and the shot, nothing. We hate to keep going the steroids route but nothing else seems to work.
The main reasons I am hesitant about going to the dermatologist are I am worried they will end up just doing everything our vet already did, and/or that they might just blame it on the ringworm. I also am on a very tight budget right not so if they are just going to do the above, I can't afford to go to one (very expensive just for the visit let alone any treatments) and then just end up having them try to do what my vet has already done, or tell is it's ringworm when we are pretty much sure that is not the root cause of his problems...
I found this dermatologist in my area (just from a web search):
I guess the Vet Specialty Center where I used to take my dog for physical therapy also has a dermatology dept...
