I have a basset hound who is sick. She has some kind of mange or allergies or something. I have taken her to the vet a lot over the past couple of months and nothing they do is helping anyone but their pocket.

The vet thought it was allergies so she gave us antibiotics and steroid shots. That kind of worked for a little while but she got bad again and the vet says she can not give her anymore steroids.
Next was sarcoptic mange so she gave her a shot of ivormec and some skin ointment to spray on her. That was also a fail.
Recently I talked to a guy who raises hunting dogs and he said he had battled demodectic mange and that ivormec did not work very well on it. So he recommended Promeris. I tried it and for 4 or 5 days things where looking better and now she is back to scratching and her hair is falling out. The promeris box says to only give it to them once a month.

I feel sorry for the poor dog she scratches until she bleeds if you don't stop her and just looks miserable.

Anyone have any advice. At this point the vet is recommending a dog dermotoligist. I am kind of getting the feeling that the vet just wants to take all of my money.
