I have a 5 year old black and white cocker spaniel that has contracted a staph infection that is resistant to every antibiotic we have tried. My vet did a skin scraping to verify which antibiotic would be best to use to get rid of the skin infection. The results came back with Zeniquin as one of the best options; however, prior to the skin scraping, my vet started with Cephalexin or Keflex which she was on for about 3 weeks, then he switched her to another antibiotic which I can't remember the name of because the Cephalexin didn't work; from there he put her on Baytril and now she has been on Zeniquin at 75 mg per day along with Prednisone which we started at 5 mg per day then went to 2.5 per day then down to 2.5 every other day. Now my vet has increased her dosage of the Prednisone to 5 mg per day - 2.5 in the a.m. and 2.5 in the p.m. to prevent itching. I am wondering if you have any suggestions on what we could use to get rid of this skin infection once and for all without harming my dog's kidneys, liver or harming any other part of her body. Please email me as soon as possible with any suggestions. Thank you!
