She has two patches that are bald that are oozing and her eyelids are red. Took her to Vet. They tested for mites and it was negative. They have her on Fluconazole.

Giant glue traps.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

Yep: Mice in hard winters are like cockroaches in the summer in Louisiana----hard to control. Have a big field behind my house.

Bathed her last night and started the oral anti-fungal today. After five hours, the redness in her eyes has already subsided a lot.

Thanks for your time and input.

She is sleeping around too much. Have her spayed.

Two days on Flucanazole and I see a difference. No more irritated eyes and the skin is now normal. I think she picked up the funk in the Arkansas flooded timber this year. UR she may be hooking too but I haven't seen any crack pipes around her kennel.

You might ask the vet about blastomycosis. It is a fungal infection that infects the lungs. It also caused my best dog to go blind in one eye and had some hair fall out among other symptoms. He ended up dying. I hope your dog does not have it. Good luck.

Bella gave herself a skin infection kicking at a spot. It looked very similar. She got over it taking antibiotics and having an anti fungal cream put on the affected skin areas.
