    Bev/ val said id ask for advice on this -american cockers, litter brothers nearly 2yrs, both suffered with skin infections but the boy today suffers most i think ( both in full coat ) anyways, hes got yeasty ears and feet  – def yeast recognise that look and smell anywhere BUT how best to treat – he on fish 4 dogs food, and treats the odd raw carrot but she been real strict with extras – is thyroid test worth it, it is something the breed can suffer with and also an inherited disease which sadly ISNT tested for.

    cheers in advance!!


    Same old thing crap food packed in the UK,change the food would be a good start, then good old Hibiscrub.
    Terrible that they are not health checking, thyroids are always worth checking especially if they are being bred on.
    What is the inherited problem?


    Val will have to double check the full name – but apparently it is an inherited problem, can cause all sorts of related issues……..not sure how much its discussed in the breed though…….
