    Default Wrinkles!

    HI everyone I am new to this website but I am having some issues with my bully. He is just a year old and we have had tons of skin issues. We finally got his skin to clear up after lots of anitibiotics, antifungals, and switching his food. He is now on simply nourish sweet potato and salmon. He hasn't had any skin issues since. A few weeks ago now I caught him scratching at his face, ever since then it has been very red and irritated. We have gotten an ointment called animax or dermavet (same thing) from our vet which is an antibacterial and antifungal. Typically this clears him right up. Well it didn't help. So we went back and now we have a spray that is called gentacalm and this doesn't seem to be working either. We are going on a month now, any advice? I've also tried the malacetic wipes. I'm wondering if it could also be just tear stains? It's a very dark red all the way down to his chin but it's not wet or oozing anything. It doesn't smell funky either? It looks painful but he doesn't seem too bothered by it. Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Get some NuStock. Follow directions on tube. It seperates,so you must squish it around to mix it. Some people complain about the smell, but it's worth it. Usually can find it at horse supply or coop,or order on web. @Angus12

    Looks like tear stains to me, filtered water sometimes helps with that.

    Do you think he would start getting tear stains if he has been drinking the same water for over a year now? Is there anything else I can do to help with this? @Davidh

    Did you recently change his food? Ruckus had similar discoloration when he had a bad reaction to a new type of food once. I switched foods and it cleared up.

    My rocky had terrible tear stains when i changed his food.. once i figured out what was causing it i changed his food and hes been doing great.. i would make sure you clean his face with warm facecloth daily until you can find something to help. it can get yucky and infected quickly if you don't watch out.. hope you find out whats happening with him..he's a cutie.

    Looks like tear stains to me. You can dry them then apply some desitin to keep them dry. One of my guys, Stig, would get seasonal tear stains. In the summer, they're gone, but then comes back in the winter months.
