Please help! For my dog but still she's suffering

I've used 2 homeopaths for my dog. One was very good but she didn't like me because I questioned a remedy and she dropped her. The 2nd wasn't very good, just basically used a computer like the remedy picker on this site and gave me a list of remedies I could try.

Vets have tested her blood and skin for everything from autoimmune disorders to tumors and nothing is wrong except her WBC count should have been increased with the level of infection she had but it was on the low end.

This is her problem. Beginning in April when the weather warmed and bugs came out again, she developed a SEVERE FEAR of flies. So bad that she would shake/stare for hours after seeing a fly, especially in or near the house.

(The good homeopath diagnosed her with flybiting seizures in June. She said mostly from over vaccination)

In May I took her to a hospital as a therapy dog for patients. Shortly after she developed an awful skin infection. It covered her stomach, chest, groin and legs. Here is a picture of it at it's worst:

I don't know if she caught it from the hospital. My other dog never caught anything but he also never had any fears.

The not good homeopath gave me a list of remedies the first one was calcium carbonate. I tried it but saw no results and read a few things about this homeopath's practice that concerned me (like several lawsuits in which dogs died) so I changed.

The next, good homeopath told me to give her Belladonna, this was in June. I did twice. Her seizure activity got worse, it changed to grand mals at night time. I thought maybe it was aggravation. Even though everything I read about belladonna fit my dog to a T it seemed.

Next the homeopath told me give her Silicea mid-July. I noticed a positive change immediately! I was so thrilled. She steadily got better after that. In August her homeopath told me give her Arsenicum Album. I did. She kept getting better. (about this time the homeopath dropped me)

Ok fast forward to NOW. My dogs both got sarcoptic mange. I followed a remedy for Sulphur but it didn't help them. I used a 'white sulphur dip' instead and in the end I had to use the flea/tick/heartworm chemical called Revolution (for pets). That's helped although they both still itch somewhat so they need another dose next week.

But for a week my dog got that skin infection again, it's not spread as bad as in the photo but it's under her front legs mainly (the dark spots) and some on her stomach to groin. Since yesterday she's acted lethargic and either doesn't want to be near anyone or is needy. She hasn't had a full seizure since August, although she had some weird fear a couple weeks ago.

She had a skin scrape and biopsy twice at 2 different vets, who say it just looks like normal staph bacteria. No fungal infection.

I 'm sorry this is so long. I thank anyone for reading it from my heart.

Please, can you help with a remedy? I'm tempted to give Silicea again. Please help...thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
These dogs have suppressed psora, so they need anti-psoric treatment!

Symptoms...
lethargic
either doesn't want to be near anyone or is needy.

All that might point towards Sulph, but would need more symptoms to be sure...

Thanks for the fast reply!

Her other symptom are those red spots infection on her body again. She has a low grade fever also (it's 104, dogs normal temp are 102-103) She's just not right though, when healthy she's a friendly playful dog, now she doesn't want to do anything. (she's a 3 year old Jack russell terrier mix) THANK YOU.

OH I forgot one thing - When I tried sulphur about 3-4 weeks ago, I used it on both dogs for the sarcoptic mange remedy.

It gave them both very bad breath. When I stopped using the sulphur, their breath got better. I don't know if it was all a coincidence...

I was giving a whole pellet with the sulphur. That was what I read the treatment for sarcoptic mange should be, one pellet every 3 days for 2 weeks. I stopped after 4 pellets because of the bad smell in their mouths.

If the Sulphur gave them bad breath, that's a prooving symptom.

Either sulphur was wrong or you gave too much. What strength of Sulphur were you giving them?

The sulphur was 30c. (a proving symptom is a symptom that happens when a healthy individual takes a remedy, correct?)

Should I try sulphur again but dissolved in water? Thanks again.

Not a prescriber but dealing with Sarcoptes in my Min Pin, we give her Sulphur 30c and she gets 3 or 4 of the pellets per dose. Sulphur will give them bad breath/smelly skin when used.

thank you cprcheetah!

how often do you give the 3-4 pellets? In a book by Dr. Pitcairn, it said 1 on the tongue every 3 days for 2 weeks. is that about the time intervals for you too? I'll try sulphur again, after reading it, her symptoms do match, she's hot and worse at night.

If the dogs get bad breath after Sulph. then that is either the wrong medicine or, you've given too much!

I gave one pellet 30c on the tongue. I'll wait a week and see what happens. Thans HomeopathyInternational
