Pyodermas experience by - Tina
I am not sure how old some of these posts are and they may not help any of the above. Maybe someone else reading this may gain from it. I have not exactly had an experience with this, atleast not diagnosed. However the skin allergies, itchy skin, and bumps from time to time. We have found through a friend of mine who was experiencing alot of problems with her pit, and skin allergies that it was food. Apparently there are alot of dogs who have allergies to grain and some meats in dog foods. Research some of the foods you are feeding, try an all natural grain free food. May be more expensive then what you are feeding, but probably cheaper then vet bills and medication. My friend was able to stop alot of meds after discovering this. Cant hurt to try it. Good luck.
