I adopted Cooper who's ten years old from a shelter a few months ago. He's gained some weight since the picture. After he got comfortable with me he wanted to eat all the time.
He's the sweetest dog I've ever had. Lovable and devoted. He's had some insecurity issues because he'd been in the shelter and some foster homes and every time I'd take him somewhere he'd get very upset, but I think that's behind us now.
My only problem with him is that he appears to be getting very smelly yeast infections on his legs and I guess paws. It smells dreadful although he doesn't scratch too much. Does anybody know how I can keep him from getting the infections? I lost my job so I don't have much money right now.
What worked incredibly well was a baking soda bath, but I am worried that those infections aren't a good sign. Can dogs take Echinacea? Or vitamins?
