    I have a 6 yr old lab mix who has had health problems his whole life with itching skin, skin and ear infections, "elephant" skin. It is really bad now and he is miserable. Hurts me to watch him. Have tried different foods, different meds including steroids, immuno allergy shots and drops (currently using drops), apoquel daily, monthly cytopoint injections, amikacin/betamethasone/silver sulfadiazine spray from a compounding pharmacy, over the counter benadryl, medicated shampoo. We have done skin tests, blood tests, allergy tests, etc. Vet told us it is not food allergies. I have spent thousands and he is just getting worse. I don't know what to do. He goes to the vet 1-2 times a month, have tried 3 different vets. Now his feet are swollen and red. He will howl sometimes and it makes me want to cry.
