So, our dear Lola, a 3 or 4 year old foxhound, has folliculitis. I'm sure she's had it her whole life...when we adopted her we knew she had it.
Do any of you have experience treating it? The only thing we've used that gets it under control is prednisone but she can't be on that too much/too often for obvious reasons (side effects, etc.).
Our vet recommended benadryl, and it does help, but makes her a bit tired, and she's already mondo lazy. It doesn't seem to help the core issue though.
We're not sure what any of the underlying causes are. She's always had it and we just don't know. It's worst on her back legs and the "leg pit". She chews and licks so much that she has a few bare spots and stained her hair red. She chews right through bitter apple, etc.
Anyhoo, anyone have any experience dealing with folliculitis? Vet told me it's difficult to treat so I thought others may have had some experience to share. I need a support group! LOL!
