Samantha has an ear infection that will not clear up - seems to be worse - very red with brown crusty places inside and very smelly! We have been on ear drops, antibiotics and prednisone - nothing seems to be working. Now I keep finding red blotchy spots on her stomach/chest area and legs. Not sure if this is related or just coincidence. I would appreciate any help - it makes me nervous when something will not respond to so much medication! Thanks!

Went back to vet today - gave her a new antibiotic and upped her prednisone dosage. Said it is staph - skin bacteria gone haywire. Now both ears are blood red and scabby. She scratches at them and makes it worse. She is just not her usual rambunctious self. We go back on Monday for a follow up and possible culture/biopsy.
Regarding the food issue - I changed her food about 2 weeks ago - the ear infection had already been going on. We switched to Taste of the Wild - recommended on this site - she seems to like it and her poop is much better than before!
I feel like a total "mommy" - I worry when my baby is not feeling well!
