We have taken him to a vet twice,she said it was a bacterial skin infection,prescribed him some anti-biotic,we gave it to him,had absolutly no effect,took him back,she prescribed him something "stronger",we gave him all of it...Still not better?? at all,what is wrong? I'm talking claws fell out/pus and all out of his paws...and he is only around 8mo. to a year old...
There are two possibilities. One is that it's an infection caused by an antibiotic-resistent bacteria and a culture may need to be done to determine what antibiotic will be effective. The second is that it's caused by something else, with the possibilities there being a virus, fungus, or a problem with his immune response of some kind. At this point, the next step logical step would be to pin down the cause through appropriate testing (bloodwork, skin biopsy, etc.) and treat based on the results.
