Our vet thought he had Staph infection and placed him on antibiotics for 9 weeks. Some healed but others remained and now more large scabs on his sides. I just realized that the problem began when we switched him to the boiled ground beef. It might be coincidental but I'm not sure.
I have slowly but surely weaned him off the beef and back on the Iams lamb and rice with a can of lamb as he had eaten for 11 years with no problem. I hope this works and maybe this was only an allergic reaction to the beef.
He is acting fine, eating well and not even itching with these scabs. Has anyone ever heard of this? We are hoping this reconciles itself because no one is sure what this is and how to cure it.
Thank you for any feedback. It's greatly appreciated.
Best to all of you,
