I have a chihuahua min pin mix thats just under 5 lbs with super cute big ears, he had a reaction to his second rabies vaccine last fall, he was given all vaccines (I wasn't aware he was receiving all) at the same time, about 6-8 weeks later the ear problems surfaced, he has been on pentoxyphiline and a topical for over three months now, we saw no improvement till about week nine. The improvement seems to have platued, while the condition is better, its still there, one ear is worse than the other. I also put the little guy on a completely grain free and soy free diet, and added a supplement. I tried to also add omega oils but have tried 3 types at dosages smaller than recommended and all give him diarrhea. I'm considering a L-arginine topical as well at this point, it should help increase circulation... Has anyone heard of success with L-arginine, orally or topically?View Thread
