    Hi....Rose is having a skin breakout for the 1st time. She is 4yo. The vet seen her 2wks ago for severe flakiness. He said to bathe her 1x week with RX of oatmeal/aloe shampoo. Now we have the bumps all down her back and 1 on her forehead. They will bleed if her brush gets to close. Need advice. She has had no changes in her diet. We do probiotics in am...coconut oil TBLspoon a day and oregano oil 3 drops about 3 days a week.

    Just a few questions...Did the vet do a skin scrape? Has she had her thyroid checked? How's her coat other than dry? Any thinning especially in the flank area? Aside from the shampoo any new detergents or cleaning supplies?

    He didn’t do a skin scrape. Her last thyroid level was normal back in the fall. Her coat isn’t thinning but I found the bumps due to hair being raised up on back. Only thing new is a spray, I got at Pet Sense that I’ve been using on bedding. It has cinnamon and cedar oil in it.

    That might be it...no smells or chemicals.... Grace is sensitive to all that stuff.

    Totally agree. Both those are skin sensitizing ingredients!

    Sounds kind of like demodectic Mange, caused by mites. I would get a skin scrap to be sure.

    Also sometimes they can have a reaction to shampoos that have grains (like Oatmeal) in them! Things can be absorbed through the skin.

    You have the exact name of the spray and take a pictures of the front and back of it where the ingredients list is.

    What exact number was her Thyroid? Was it just a T4? Or a complete Thyroid Panel?

    When Ruby had dry skin the vet gave me oatmeal shampoo that did nothing, went to a second vet and they told me NOT to use the oatmeal shampoo as it had a drying effect on the skin.
    ALSO perhaps the ingredients in the TOTW have changed and she is having a reaction to it?
