    My 120 pound pit has been allergy tested at a University based Vet school, with 95 % positive for alleging. He has the absolute worst lick granuloma on his right front leg (Seriously, the Vet with 40 yrs under his belt, said it was the worst he has seen) They prescribed massive doses of prednisone, Keflex. It was actually working until he started with overall fur loss and heavy respiration. Everything had to be stopped. I am searching for other options. Whatever that option is, it has to be oral. Ideas please please please

    Dear Nicola,

    You might want to get your dog tested for food allergies. Dr. Dodds in California has a saliva test that is real easy to do through the mail. Then you will know what it causing it and you can stop feeding the offending food. My dog had the same problem and it cured all his skin problems. Anything you put on it is only temporary relief and probably will not cure it. I would also give him a grain free food until you get back the results. That will help a lot. Grains are not good for dogs and can cause lots of skin issues. To keep it from becoming infected make an ice tea dilution of betadine and water and wash it 2-3 times a day. I wish you and your dog the best.

    THANK YOU so much for all the natural treatments for ear hematomas. Wish I had known a few 30 years ago.

    The only corrective treatment is the Auralsplint. Surgery causes more damage, and lets the hematoma bleed out of the ear. Drains allow the blood to leave the ear. Only the Auralsplint treats the using the blood to heal the affliction. Auralsplint.org for more details.
