Boo Scratch  
I am Stuck In a nightmare, recently moving from Las Vegas to Chicago and have a 3 year old French bull dog named Boo. She started having issues around 1 year old. Vet couldn't give me answers so I looked into a dog dermatologist. Found one and got the bumps and scratching under control, a couple of UTIs, and staff infections in the last 2 years. On going battle. Very expensive and now after taking atopica and a steroid daily everything is right back to where it started. Very frustrating to come home to find her neck all cut up. Not to mention she has to wear a dog sweater with sleeves 24/7. She has special shampoo im supposed to bathe her in daily which is more than any one person can handle. Is this anxiety? Allergies? Or little of everything. It's breaking me down inside that she is just miserable all the time. Don't know what to do!

Dear Emily,

First of all, I hope you had a nice holiday...even with your poor little girl.
My first recommendation is to log onto my site, and fill out the form that pops up over the site about 10 seconds in. Hit submit and then verify that you are you. You will be sent an e-mail with a PDF attachment of my book. If you read it, you will get answers to most of your questions. After you read it, please e-mail me at my personal e-mail or call me at 727-327-8769 in the evening after about 5PM Eastern time so we can talk about Boo's problem. Obviously if I can write a book about the subject, there is more than I can tell you here. The problem is not impossible to solve, we just have to get her away from the cause.

I look forward to hearing from you and getting your girl healthy.

By the way, there is no charge for my talking with you, so please call me after reading the book.
