3044. A 10-year-old Westie has smelly wet ears and itchy body

March 10, 2017

The owner was referred to me as her Westie's ears got worse, becoming wet and smelly. The Westie kept shaking her head. Consulted vets but no resolution. So she clipped bald and treated the skin disease with washes and spas. No use. Body odour. Keeps scratching. Paw licking.

Diagnosis: Generalised ringworm. The owner did not want a blood allergy test. Treating for ringworm and given anti-allergic diet.
