I would highly recommend using fresh aloe directly from the plant on hot spots, and the elephant type skin areas along with the ACV. Both tend to break up the yeast. We also have used the red light laser treatment for healing. Both have beautiful coats by the way. We use Orvus shampoo which has gentle healing characteristics, whitens is easy to rinse out; have used it for 40+ years on horses and dogs. You could even mix it with a little blueing to give white and silver dogs that incredible bright look. Will check in in a month or so to update the yeast issue. As for the hound with the cancer tumor, we just found two more lumps that are small and will be removed promptly. Fortunately just under the skin.
Another side effect that is occasionally seen in dogs taking steroids for various health concerns is changes in behavior. It's not uncommon to see your pet become suddenly more aggressive or anxious after giving him steroids. Dogs that were otherwise very mild mannered and well behaved may begin to run around or bark. In more extreme cases, you may need to be careful about the possibility of your dog biting or harming someone. Mood changes can also make your pet more sedate and depressed as well, so it's important to also be on the lookout for other types of adjustments in behavior.
