Dermatitis

Hi I have an aged Lab with dermatitis between her toes that I cant get rid of.
I have taken her to the vet and they got me to cover her foot and apply cream twice a day to help dry it up, but it hasn't worked.
I was hoping it might dry out over summer but it hasn't got any better.
Anyone got any tips please.

Try soaking each paw in a weak solution of condys crystals once a day, should clean it up
  

The kill is not the bottom line reason for the hunt, but it cannot be removed from the equation

If only feeding dry biscuits try some chicken necks, I know the fat in them is really good for a dog's coat and they put some bacteria into their gut that may be beneficial.

Alternate between apple cider and Benzac[10%]. Put dogs paws in the apple cider for a thorough soaking but do not dry. Next night rub Benzac on. Get it from chemist. Know it is for acne but it works.

Check to see if you have any Wandering Jew aka Wandering Willie around the place , it can cause nasty dermatitis in dogs feet and on their tummies
