    Default My poor poor baby!

    I noticed over the weekend that Vegas has a yeast infection in his nose rope. I started treating it immediately.....but it's so raw! I've been alternating with yeast cream and neosporin. Today he let me have a good look at what I was dealing with and I found the "raw" culprit. Vegas had a "whisker" that was infected. At least it had a huge discolored divot around it. I always have had to photo shop this whisker out...it was just funny looking.

    So...I thought I would help him out (okay...I admit it.....help me out too) and I pulled the sucker. OMG! I didn't know those whiskers were barbed!

    Aww poor baby, hope he feels better soon, it should heal up now that the ingrown whisker is gone. Just keep the area clean, and maybe some witch hazel on a Q-tip will help to dry it up.

    Ouch! I bet that was a tough pull.

    btw, It's best to keep the rope fold area as dry as possible and let the body heal on its own. Some of the ointments will cause the dog to scrape at the area and even get it more dirty, which can cause more trouble than before. I wipe out Rev's rope with a damp cloth and then dry it off. Otherwise, he goes into a rubbing frenzy and loads it up again with dirt.

    The vet also gave us some great disinfectant/Hydrocortisone wipes too. They help fight against the yeast infections, and relieve the itch. However, their smell usually makes Rev rub it on everything (It smells clean and fresh to me). The wipes are called MalAcetic HC

    Hope this helps you and everyone else who runs across this thread.

    Ouch..I bet that was sore! I know I've posted some on this lately but Vetercyn is awesome for everything. I was using all those stinky pads/ointments to clean Bubba's rope and he always hated them and would run away then rub like crazy after. His rope was starting to get red lately and since I've been using Vetercyn, it's almost completely well and...it has no offensive odor. He could care less now when I clean it. Just my 2 cents.
